James “Raymond” Fryoux passed away on Saturday, July 4, 2020 at the age of 83. He was the eldest son of the late John and Mabel Fryoux from Plaquemine, LA, where he grew up and boxed for Plaquemine High School. He lived most of his life in Destrehan, LA where he was the Owner/ Operator of Fryoux Tankerman Service Inc, Fryoux Tankerman of Texas Inc, and Fryoux Barge Consultants, LLC until he retired in 2005. His legacy began with his father and is continued with his son, Jimmy. He represented St. Charles Parish as a Port Commissioner with the Port of South Louisiana from 2008-2015. He is the beloved husband of Vicki Tumey Fryoux of 40 years, the devoted father of Jimmy Fryoux II, Kellie Fryoux, Renee Dufrene, and Justin Fryoux; cherished grandfather of 8 grandchildren: Jessi, Melissa, Jared, Erica, Brittney, Destiny, Haley, and Annelise; and 6+ great grandchildren: Tyler, CJ, Lexy, Kaitlyn, Kameron, Gage, and one soon to be born in Jan. 2021.

He was preceded in death by one sister, Betty Deaton (Arlen). Raymond lived a life of service. He joined the US Marine Corps at the age of 17 and served his country in the Panama Canal. He had a deep love for God, his family, and had the gift of generosity for those in need. Everyone will remember Raymond for his strong willed character (aka hard headedness), his compassion for life, and his love for the outdoors. Whether he was catching redfish in the marsh or hunting deer in the woods. His legacy will live on in the hearts and minds of everyone he “sparred” with, personally and professionally.

I have known Raymond since I started in the marine industry over 40 years ago. He has always been a strong advocate for our business, but, most of all, a great friend. My heart hurts with his passing!

Vickie, I cherish the memories of my time with Raymond and the times we were all together! I will always remember our times together! R.I.P. my friend!

To know him was to love him. I was blessed to have my wonderful brother Raymond for 72 years of love, guidance, family leadership, and so much more. The world is a smaller place without him but beautiful memories remain, and Heaven is richer with him there enjoying reunions with so many friends, relatives, and of course his heavenly Father whom he loved so much. Thank you Vicki for always being there for him. Love from Laurie and Ronnie.

Vicki I can't tell you how much you and all your family are in my heart. Raymond was a force of nature, a man of faith, compassion, and character. He was full of life. I see him on. a dance floor with you in his arms, I see him boiling crawfish and telling tales, I see him reading Twas the night before Christmas the way only Raymond could. I see him light up when his children and grandchildren are near. But what always moved me most was his kindness. What a love story you two lived. I'm grateful for our recent visit and one last memory to remind me how lucky I am to have known this wonderful, sweet man. Raymond had so very many friends. Probably as many waiting for him as still here. I would like to have seen that homecoming. Now it's your turn for peace and healing. Love you my friend.
