Auguste J. Pareti, 88, loving father, brother and friend, known to his family as “Gus” and to his friends as “Augie,” passed away after a brief illness, on Saturday, August 19, 2017. He was born on July 17, 1929. His French Quarter upbringing helped forge his unique wit—he was always “39 and holding” anytime someone asked his age, love of sarcasm, outlook on life and his R&D retirement philosophy all of which made an indelible impression on those he met through his life’s journey. When called upon, he proudly served his country during the Korean War as a member of the US Army Tank Battalion. He is preceded in death by his wife Roberta G. Pareti; parents Paul Pascal Pareti II and Jeannette Cavani Pareti and brothers Carol Charles Pareti, Paul Pascal Pareti III and Gerald “Gerry” Robert Pareti. He is survived by his daughter Lisa A. Pareti; sisters Valarie Pareti Perry; Patricia Pareti D’Arcangelo and Carolyn Pareti Ybos (twin sister of Carol Pareti); nieces; nephews; grand and great-grand nieces and nephews; cousins; in-laws and dear friends. He will be greatly missed but never forgotten by all those who knew and loved him. Relatives and friends are invited to attend a Visitation to be held on Friday, August 25, 2017 beginning at 11:30 a.m. followed by a Funeral Mass to begin at 1:00 p.m. Services will be held in the Chapel of the Lake Lawn Metairie Funeral Home immediately followed by interment at All Saints Mausoleum.
