Both graduated from high school in 1959 - Roy from St. Aloysius and Katherine from St. Francis Xavier. They have four sons, Jeff Turcotte of Albuquerque, New Mexico, Greg Turcotte of Seminary, Tim Turcotte of Lexington, Kentucky and Steve Turcotte of Vicksburg. They also have 15 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

Note: The entire Mass was celebrated by candlelight because of a storm that came through Vicksburg that afternoon and knocked out the power. It was a beautiful celebration. The lights finally came back on about 7:15 at the reception in the parish hall.
