Funeral services for Joseph J. "Joe" Robicheaux Jr. will be held Wednesday, December 27, 2017, at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Centerville during an 11:00 a.m. Mass of Christian Burial. Following the Mass he will be laid to rest in the St. Joseph Cemetery Mausoleum. Father Ruben Primor will be the Celebrant for the Mass with Father Oneil Landry concelebrating.

A gathering of family and friends will be held Wednesday at the church from 9:00 a.m. until service time, with the Holy Rosary being prayed at 10:00 a.m. Serving as pallbearers will be Gary Robicheaux, Jacob Robicheaux Jr., Tony Pellerin, Ronnie Thibodaux, Neil Thibodaux, Kade Duckworth, and Parrish Segura. Honorary pallbearers will be Kendra Duckworth, Lukah Verdun, and Wesley Duckworth.

Joe, or Pal as he was affectionately known by many, was a native of Bayou Sale and a resident of Centerville for the past 62 years who passed away peacefully at the age of 88 in the evening hours of Sunday, December 24, 2017, at Iberia Medical Center in New Iberia. He was a Third Degree Life member of the Knights of Columbus Centerville Council 4309. He met Doris, the love of his life, at a dance, a passion they both shared and passed down to their children. They could often be found dancing at the Rose Club. He would often tell the story of a time they were in New Orleans at Storyville, where Fats Domino was playing, upon finishing dancing to Blueberry Hill, Fats called out Joe and Doris and told the crowd they were the best couple on the floor and he could tell that they didn't start dancing yesterday. Joe was a stranger to no one and cherished God, life, friends, and family, making daily calls to his daughters and all of his grandchildren letting them know as he would say, "You know what I say, I say I love you." He will be fondly remembered and dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.

Those he leaves to cherish his memory include his loving wife of 68 years, Doris Landry Robicheaux; daughter, Tana R. Thibodaux and her husband Ronnie; daughter and caregiver, Kendra R. Duckworth and her fiancé Tony Pellerin; seven grandchildren, Neil Thibobaux and his wife Tobee, Jeannie Segura and her husband Parrish, Kelsie Duckworth, Kade Duckworth and his wife Haley, Maxciene Smith and her husband Mark, Kylie Schrock and her husband Martin, and Billie Jo Verrette and her husband Chester; ten great grandchildren, Mia Smith, Marissa Smith and her fiancé Ryan, Marlie Smith and her fiancé Logan, Gracie Segura, Jaxx Thibodaux, Krista Duckworth, Lukah Verdun, Quentin Schrock, Allie Schrock, and Remi Duckworth; one great great granddaughter, Kinley LeBlanc; son-in-law, Wesley Duckworth; daughters-in-law, Kaye Robicheaux and Norma Bodin; his beloved cat, Nadine; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and friends.

He was preceded in death by his son, Billy "Frog" Robicheaux; his parents, Joseph Robicheaux and Mary Alma Clements Robicheaux; his brothers, Murray Robicheaux and Jacob Robicheaux Sr.; his sister, Emily R. Guidry; and his lifelong friends, Joe and Ann Vaughn.

The family would like to express their deepest gratitude to Dr. Roland Degeyter and staff, Franklin Home Health, Heart of Hospice, and the entire staff of Franklin Foundation Hospital who were like family.
