Robert Edward (Bob) Thibodeaux of Trussville, AL age 87, made his journey to heaven to join his family and friends on Monday April 6, 2020. Bob was proceeded in death by his parents, John and Mayola Thibodeaux (Marrero, LA), 2 sisters, Joanna Thibodeaux (New Orleans, LA) Rita Thibodeaux Haydel (San Dimas, CA) and his beloved daughter Connie Thibodeaux Puryear (Longview, TX) He is survived by his five children: Chris Thibodeaux (Sonia), Curtis Thibodeaux (Ann), Cathy Thibodeaux Hood (Durell), Cindy Thibodeaux Vidales (Felix), Carrie Thibodeaux Peters (Jon) Three sisters: Barbara Thibodeaux Jones, Beverly Thibodeaux Galliano and Faye Thibodeaux Danos Blessed with 11 Grandchildren, 10 Great Grandchildren, wonderful Brother-in-laws, cousins, nieces and nephews. Thankful for his very loving companion of many years, Nelda Phurrough (Tuscaloosa, AL). Our dad was a very special man that proudly proclaimed his “Thibodeaux” name! His Louisiana heritage and “hard-knocks” upbringing was something he would gladly sit and talk about to anyone that would lend him an ear. Dad was a promoter of hard work and we, his children, are thankful for this quality that he instilled in each of us. After serving 4 years in the United States Air Force, dad went on to earn his Business degree from Northwestern State College in LA. He then set out to pursue his MBA while also running his own business, TIBCO & ASSOC, and raising 6 children alongside his former wife Jan Thibodeaux. Dad was a BIG dreamer! Not a dreamer about stuff, but a dreamer about a better way of life. Always thinking of a new idea for taking care and improving someone else’s life. He was passionate about teaching us to share. Share what God has blessed you with, time, talents, money or food. Help your family, feed your neighbors, use your resources. He not only preached these words but also lead by example. Our dad was happy, funny and filled us with lots of music and dancing. Boy, how he danced! But most of all, our dad was grateful. Grateful for forgiveness, for God’s love and all simple pleasures of his life.
