Pavy was the uncle by marriage of Dr. Carl Weiss, the presumed assassin of Huey Pierce Long, Jr. His brother, Judge Benjamin Pavy of the Louisiana 16th Judicial District Court, was the father-in-law of Dr. Weiss. Dr. Pavy's father-in-law was the attorney Gilbert L. Dupré, who from 1913 to 1932 was a member of the Louisiana House of Representatives. Dr. Pavy succeeded his father-in-law in the House and served a single term from 1932 to 1936. Pavy was born in Grand Coteau in St. Landry Parish. He attended the former St. Charles College in Grand Coteau, Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, and Tulane University School of Medicine, from which he received his M.D. degree in 1904. He practiced medicine first for many years in rural Leonville in St. Landry Parish; in 1947, he moved to Opelousas, where he remained until his death in the spring of 1962 of a two-month illness. Pavy was a past president of the St. Landry Parish School Board. A long-term member of the St. Landry Parish Police Jury, he was for seventeen years the president of that body. In 1928, four years before his election to the state House of Representative, Pavy had opposed Huey Long by running as an unsuccessful candidate for lieutenant governor against the Long-designated choice, Paul Cyr, a dentist from Jeanerette in Iberia Parish. Cyr later broke with the Longs. At the time of his death, Dr. Pavy was vice-president of the gravity drainage district in Arnaudville. He was affiliated with fraternal benefit society, the Woodmen of the World, and both the St. Landry and Louisiana state medical societies. After services in the St. Landry Roman Catholic Church, Dr. Pavy was interred beside his wife, the former Fannie Estilette Dupré (1882-1957), who was the daughter of Representative Dupré, and their infant daughter, Marie Laperle Pavy (1908-1909) at the Myrtle Grove Cemetery in Opelousas.
