He will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by five nieces, Helen T. Skolfield, Patricia T. Tatum, Betty R. Robinson, Judy T. Wiley and Ann Daigle; two nephews, Steve T. Thibodaux and Ford V. Thibodaux Jr.; and numerous great-nieces and great-nephews.
Whitney was preceded in death by his parents; wife, Ruby B. Thibodaux; one sister, Wilna T. Landry; and four brothers, Clay F. Thibodaux Jr., E. Halley Thibodaux, Everett C. Thibodaux and Ford V. Thibodaux Sr.
The family would like to express their thanks and gratitude to the wonderful dedicated caregivers who took care of Whitney for the last few years.
