Richard Michael Boudreaux, Jr.

February 19, 1944 — May 7, 2023

Richard Michael Boudreaux, Jr. passed away on May 7, 2023.  He was 79 years old.  Richard was born February 19, 1944, in Napoleonville, Louisiana to Richard Michael Boudreaux and Vivian Blanchard Boudreaux.

Richard owned and operated Boudreaux’s Contracting.  After retiring, he had the time to spend with family and friends taking in his favorite past-times including all LSU sporting events, travel – including Cancun and his favorite vacation, a cruise.  He was always happiest taking in the outdoors, hunting and fishing.  Richard was a longtime member of Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Church.

Richard is preceded in death by his parents.  He is survived by his beloved wife of 54 years, Effie Maxwell Boudreaux; their loving daughter Hope Monte and husband Brian; and their beloved grandson Brennan Monte and great-grandson, Clayton Monte.  He is also survived by his brother-in-law, Robert Maxwell, as well as numerous other loving family and friends.

Richard had the best laugh and the biggest heart.  A phenomenal cook, his claim to fame was receiving runner-up at the Jambalaya Festival for his award-winning recipe.  We will forever remember his devotion to God, church, and his family – the love he had for them all will forever live on in memories and stories shared.
