Mr. Boudeloche was born on February 8, 1950, in Raceland, to the late Joseph Boudeloche and Yvonne Doucet Boudeloche, He grew up in Galliano and was a 1968 graduate of Holy Savior Central, in Lockport. He then attended and graduated from the South Louisiana Trade School, in Houma, majoring in Diesel Mechanics. In December of 1970, Mr. Boudeloche was drafted into the U.S. Army, and served our country until he was honorably discharged in August of 1972. After the sudden death of his grandfather, he began running his boat business. In 1978, the boats were sold to Iberia Crew Boat Marine Services. Philip continued working with them until his retirement in 2014. Over the years he worked as a mechanic, electrician, boat Skipper, crew changer, purchasing agent, safety instructor, and as a Homeland Security Instructor.

 

Due to his obsession with the weather, his co-workers would jokingly call him “Cantore” and would always go to him for the latest weather updates, especially during hurricane season.

 

An avid and lifelong LSU fan, Phil could be seen every day, year-round, wearing an LSU shirt, from his collection of over 60 shirts.

 

Philip was a devout Catholic and served as an Altar Boy from age seven throughout his teen years. At one point, he considered entering the priesthood, and visited St. Joseph’s Seminary. A lifetime member of the Knights of Columbus, he held several different positions including Grand Knight. Philip was a proud member of J.M. Langlois 4th Degree, and was also instrumental in establishing KC Council 11792, at Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Church, in 1996, with 36 members. In 2002, he was appointed District Deputy of District 033, which included Sacred Heart, Jeanerette, Loreauville, Lydia, and Coteau Holmes Councils.

 

He is survived by his wife of 25 years, Judy Babineaux Boudeloche; sons, Philip Boudeloche, Jr. (Alida) and Troy Boudeloche (Alice); step son Ryan Ronsonet (Magen); grandchildren, Gabrielle, Paige, Kalie, McKienzy, Coda and Levi Boudeloche, Blaksyn Bouy, and Drake, Kenzie, Evan, and Lillian Ronsonet; great grandchildren, Aliyah, Alivia, Brenson, Briar, and Rana; sisters, Jo Ella Callais and Mary Collins.

The family would like to give special thanks to Acadian Hospice, especially Dana, Courtney, Amanda, and Madeline for their sincere care, to CNA Georgiana Solomon for never giving up on him, and to Home Instead aide, Amy LeBlanc, who was so remarkable with him and always made him smile. Thanks also to Estelle Edmond for her care and spiritual support. Extra special thanks to Mark and Linda Broussard, our “Angels on Earth’, who were always there when needed and more.
