Mass of Christian Burial
Obituary of Deacon Paul Augustin
Deacon Paul Augustin entered into eternal rest on November 1, 2021, the Feast of All Saints, at the age of 64. Born in New Orleans, Louisiana, Deacon Paul lived in Slidell for the past 40 years. He was a graduate of Redemptorist High School and UNO where he also received his MBA. He was ordained to the permanent diaconate in the Archdiocese of New Orleans on December 13, 2008. Paul served as deacon at St. Luke the Evangelist Catholic Church in Slidell and as chaplain for Cafe Reconcile for his ministry of charity. He worked at the Center for Restorative Breast Surgery for the past 12 years as the Chief Technology Officer.
To Paul, if something was worth doing it was worth overdoing; from building a family swing set to withstand a category 5 hurricane, to devoting his life to serving and loving those in his family and his community. He was a long time participant in Marriage Encounter and regular participant for 30 years at Manresa House of Retreats. His love for conversing with others and sharing the faith led to his call to the Diaconate. He enjoyed gardening, and cooking. He was passionate about sports: playing, coaching, and watching. He was a devoted Saints and LSU fan, an avid racquetball and basketball player, and an even more enthusiastic youth sports coach for his children. But most of all, his greatest joy was spending quality time with his wife and family.
Deacon Paul is survived by his beloved bride of 41 years, Pamela Quarles Augustin; his mother, Anna Roccaforte Augustin; his sister, Geri Wright (Roger); his brother, Raymond P. Augustin, Jr. (Jean); and his three children, Paul Augustin, Jr. (Heather), Nicole A. Reed (Chris), and Daniel Augustin. Affectionately called Granddaddy, he is also survived by 12 grandchildren: Joshua, Joseph, Gianna, and Isabella Augustin; Jack, John, and Julia Vu; and Evie, Jo, Levi, Max, and Rosalie Reed. He is also survived by in-laws, Jack Quarles, Jr. (Dorothy), Lynda Q. Mullen (Toby), and many loving nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his father, Raymond P. Augustin.
