My sincere condolences to The Bordelon Family. My Grandpa introduced me to Mr. Richie in 1969, I was only 5 years old. We used to visit him at B&B Auto Parts in Arabi. He always had a story to tell. Im 58 years old now, and i'll always remember Mr. Richie & all those crazy stories he told us. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him. REST IN PEACE MY FRIEND.

I remember after hurricane Katrina he and I were working on my truck just outside of the trailer EVERYONE was living in. I was blocked in by the other cars but Richie said I could make it . He insisted there was enough room, and I hit the trailer. Rocking it with all of the Bordelon's inside. Everyone came running out and all we could do was stand there and laugh! He always called me Nick the Greek not sure why but I'm sure it's because he loves this Yankee! RIP

I miss you grandpa, my favorite memory of you was the time you picked me up from Loyola and threatened to run over a guy on a bike in the middle of the road. You were always cornucopia of fun, dumb and amazing stories I will always love you
