Half-pint was known for his timeless words of wisdom and he made friends everywhere he went. His family always said that he should have been a politician or a comedian. He enjoyed gardening and yard work. He could be found most often cooking in his outdoor kitchen, while watching the horse races or western movies.
His greatest passion since childhood was working with thoroughbred horses. He was a people person and enjoyed visiting with family and lifelong friends. He was a longtime member and faithful attendee of a men’s supper club. His kindness and gentle soul enriched all who knew him. He will be sadly and sorely missed by his loving family.
He is survived by his wife, Deborah Rogers Thibodeaux; his son, Stacey Thibodeaux and companion Danielle Courville; his daughter, Melissa (Quentin) Quebedeaux; his sister, Priscilla (Ralph) Breaux; and his grandchildren, Brylee Thibodeaux, Ava Thibodeaux and Colton Quebedeaux.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Lee and Luna Castex Thibodeaux.
Pallbearers were Brylee Thibodeaux, Glenn “Tosco” Patin, Norman Tauzin, Ralph Breaux, Jerry Webb and Quentin Quebedeaux.
