Christopher John Soileau, 50, “Chris”, a native of Pineville, LA and a resident of Zachary, LA, died on Saturday, June 20, 2020 as a result of a motor vehicle accident.

As a young coach I had the great honor of coaching both Chris and Phil and getting to know some of his siblings and family. I did not personally know his wife but she was obviously a wonderful person. I remember Chris as a good hearted and humble person. Like his brother Phil and his entire family he was competitive and an exceptional athlete. Most of all though he was a good person. My heart felt regrets and prayers go out to the entire Soileau family as well as Karen and her entire family. Sincerely, coach Moreau

To all of the Soileau family, thank you for letting us join you last Thanksgiving. I am so glad I had a chance to catch up with everyone, especially Chris & Karen. Although most of my memories of them are from when I was a child, I have always looked up to them and I know my dad had a special place in his heart for them. When Karen and I spoke last we agreed to meet up for a meal the next time she was in Houston as we figured out we had some work projects in common. I was sad when covid hit, and March came and went without having a chance to see her again. Both of them will be greatly missed! We are sorry we couldn’t be with you today but it was truly a lovely service and we are lifting you up in our thoughts & prayers. Love you all!
