“Steve Oats was a trusted colleague and friend. He loved Lafayette deeply and spent his time and energy working to make our community a better place to live, work, and raise families. Steve taught me a great deal about the history of our City and Parish, and his decades of experience in local government made him an invaluable resource. On behalf of the citizens of Lafayette, I send my heartfelt condolences to his wife Sylvia, the UL community, and all who benefited from his wisdom and experience. He will be truly missed.”
