Bryan (Pappy) James Thibeaux received his crown of life that God promised to those who love Him on Thursday March 25, 2021. Bryan was a lifelong resident of New Iberia.
Bryan loved the Lord with his whole heart. The legacy he leaves are the believers he discipled for Christ. As well as an army of young people to carry on the work he started. Bryan was a teacher, mentor, friend, and example of the life we should live as God’s children. He earned his bachelor’s in theology from Christian Life School of Theology, through Faith Cathedral World Outreach in New Iberia.
Bryan was a man of many talents, building, plumbing, electrical, mechanics, and anything that needed to be fixed he would give it his best. He was always ready to lend a hand in any capacity to those who needed help. Bryan constantly sought knowledge He loved history, geography, music, culture, wildlife and was always eager to share what he learned with others. Bryan was the person others went to for advice, prayer, counseling, wisdom, and they left with more wisdom, understanding, confidence, and peace.
One of his hobbies was raising animals and birds, which he freely gave to others so that they could produce their own. He always said a person needs a hobby and encouraged others to raise animals for themselves.
His greatest joy were his children and grandchildren, who were all favored equally by him. Although, he had a way of making each feel as though they were his favorite. He was their go to from a small splinter to a big heart break. Each one believed, “Pappy can fix anything.”
