A referral from Liberty Lumber turned into a decades long business association and much more importantly, a lasting friendship. My sincere condolences to everyone he loved, family and friends. May your road beyond be filled with loved ones, bountiful fish filled marshes, streams & lakes, and a mellow scotch. You are deeply missed...

JR, I will sincerely you, my friend. You were such an awesome co-worker, at Sewell Cadillac, and friend. Your years of kindness will not be forgotten, at Victory Fellowship. I called on you one time to cook chicken for Fourth of July, Feed the Multitude. I never had to make that call again. You were there, ever year after that, with your huge cooker-grill. I love and miss you man. I’m so glad you, Sonny, and I got to cruise together. Awesome and fun times. Hey man, you never got to teach me to fish!

I can’t believe my lifelong friend of 54 years is gone. All the incredible weekends we had at Jug Lake hunting & fishing. Summer camp in NC. So many fun times running together growing up. Weather you called him John C., Dupe, or JR, he was always full of life and ready to go. He was always a true friend. We never did get to do that fishing trip we always talked about, but I’ll bet you, Ray and Ruth have already found some killer fishing holes up there in heaven.
To Meghan, Ryan and Tyler, my heart goes out to y’all. Your Dad was a good hard working man. My most sincere condolences to you all. If there is ever anything I can do for you, I’m only a call away.
John C. Robichaux I’ll miss you my friend, Rest In Peace.

We are so very sorry for your loss. John was our beloved backyard neighbor, friend and my colleague. I enjoyed his chuckle, wit and company as we chatted about projects, family, friends and life in general over the fence. He deeply loved his family, work, customers and the peace and fun that fishing with his buddies brought him. He was a joy to work with and a wonderful neighbor. I can hardly bear to walk into the backyard. I am missing him terribly.

John was one of the hardest working and most trustworthy person I ever meet. He was always kind and had a twinkle in his eye. Not only did he do great work, but he was a wonderful storyteller. I will miss him and his regular delivery of fresh caught fish. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.
