In memory of Dr. Ray Robicheaux

The St. Thomas More’s garden plot at the Eunice Community Gardens dedicated their vegetable garden in memory of Dr. Ray Robicheaux. A retired Math professor at LSUE and an avid gardener, especially vegetable gardener, it seemed fitting to name the garden in memory of Robicheaux. The late Robicheaux always shared his produce from his garden, especially golden cherry tomatoes, with the staff at St. Thomas More Church. From left, are Jan Fruge, a staff member at St. Thomas More Church; Randy Miller, director at Eunice Community Gardens; and Pat Robicheaux, wife of the late Ray Robicheaux.
