Robert "Bobby" Louviere, age 91, of Welsh, Louisiana peacefully passed away on Wednesday, March 24, 2021 surrounded by his loving family. "Bobby" was born October 20, 1929.

He very proudly and honorably served in the United States Air Force as a Sergeant. Bobby was a faithful member of Our Lady of Seven Dolors Catholic Church and was awarded Parishioner of the Year in 2005. He served as a Grand Knight of The Knights of Columbus. He was a member of the Lepa Board. Bobby served the Town of Welsh for 35 years and was the Town Superintendent when he retired. He loved his Welsh Greyhounds and made sure to attend as many games as possible. Bobby received numerous awards and recognitions from the Town of Welsh, but was most proud of his American Public Power Association Recognition of the Seven Hats Award. He was also extremely proud of being recognized as the 2011 Welsh Rotary Citizen of the Year for his outstanding and dedicated service to the Town of Welsh. Bobby treasured his time spent with his supportive and loving family. You could often find him in his garden, fishing, or listening to live music with his wife and girls. Bobby leaves a large legacy behind and is already deeply missed by all who knew him.

He leaves behind his adoring wife of 70 years, Audrey Louviere; daughters, Brenda King and husband Tony, Debbie Menard and husband Dwight, Janet Roth and husband Alan, Angela Schexnider and husband Michael, and Pamela Watkins and husband Marshall; sister, Peggy Calloway; 13 grandchildren; 16 great-grandchildren; as well as numerous friends and relatives.

Brenda and family,
It was sad news to learn about Mr. Bobby. I have such fond memories going home with you and being greeted with a smile from your mom while she was cooking something good to eat and then later by your dad as he walked in the door from work. He always had a big smile on his face and a friendly greeting and I Know he was tired from his day’s work. One fond memory was at our last homecoming parade when they both rode in the parade in Robert’s cadillac with him and Rita. How happy they looked! They were a wonderful couple and so young at heart. I am so happy to have known them both. Give your mom my love.

This precious man won my heart the first time I walked in his room and saw those sparkling eyes and sweet grin. There was always so much love surrounding him; his faith was palpable. I was so blessed to know him, and his beautiful family!
