Millard DesHotels was born in Mamou, Louisiana on November 28, 1937 to Millard DesHotels, Sr. and Hazel Tate DesHotels.

He also served his community by coaching several youth sports and was a member of both Knights of Columbus and Woodman of the World. He attended St. Ann Catholic Church.

An avid hunter, Millard enjoyed bonding with his sons, grandson and friends. He was no stranger to the Jiffy 2 morning coffee club. He was a loving husband, an attentive father and grandfather and a loyal friend- he will be missed dearly by many.

He is survived by his wife of 60 years, Floretta "Flo" DesHotels; one son, Kyle DesHotels and wife Leslie; daughter-in-law, Connie DesHotels; his brother, Lear DesHotels and wife Belle; his sister, Norma Dupre and husband Gil; five grandchildren, Kristi King and husband Bubba, Shea DesHotels and wife Ginger, Kasey Church and husband Cody and Desiree Buller and husband Alex and eight great grandchildren, Sydia, Vara, Briggs, Iyla and Beau, Nixxon, Veyda and Rhett.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Millard DesHotels, Sr. and Hazel Tate DesHotels and his eldest son, Blaine DesHotels.
