Robert (Bobby) Joseph Laiche entered into eternal rest with The Lord at his home in Marrero, Louisiana on December 23, 2017, at the age of 72 years. He is preceded in death by his mother, Mildred Barrilleaux Dehon, stepfather, Raymond H. Dehon & father, John F. Laiche. Beloved father of Amelia Isabel Taylor & beloved brother of Ronald A. Laiche (Judith) and Debra Dehon Gegenheimer (William). Robert was a merchant seaman in his youth and often shared colorful stories of his travels to Asia and Africa. He later graduated from Bible college and was an ordained minister and evangelist, working in the field of addiction recovery. In his last years, he struggled with illness and chronic pain, but never ceased to share his love for Jesus and The Word with family, friends or anyone he met, or to help anyone in need. Robert considered his daughter, Amelia and his work in ministry, his greatest accomplishments in life. Though our hearts ache, we know that he is at peace now in the loving arms of Jesus. A private service will be held at All Saints Mausoleum in Metairie, Louisiana, where he will be laid to rest with his beloved mother and stepfather. Dignity Memorial/Lake Lawn Metairie Funeral Home is handling the arrangements.
