The motorcycle hearse led a procession of motorcyles, family and friends to St. Bernard Mausoleum No. 2 for interment.
Fr. Louis Allen Breaux conducted the services.
A dedicated and loving father and grandfather, Tickey was married for 33 years to his sweetheart Judy Hebert Romero. He was a devoted father to his two sons, Ryan and Robbie. Tickey was able to share his many talents with his sons, and this was his greatest joy in life.
Tickey loved nature. He always had a dog at his side. For many years Tickey and Judy loved meeting friends, going on motorcycle adventures and camping at Toledo Bend. He also loved tinkering with cars, was a master mechanic and for many years enjoyed refurbishing/restoring classic cars. Each year during the Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival, relatives and friends from Texas would spend the weekend with Judy and Tickey boiling crawfish, sharing stories and drinking beer. Tickey enjoyed riding his motorcycle, helping family and friends, spoiling his grandson and working with his sons.
He was self employed and loved working his excavator, backhoe and Bob Cat. His friends dropped by his shop daily to visit with him and discussed what problems they could solve that day.
Tickey was a member of the Harley Owners Group (HOG). He was also a member of the Breaux Bridge Masonic Lodge #476.
