Obituary: Bobby P. Dupre

Bobby P. Dupre

January 25, 1937 ~ December 8, 202285 Years Old


It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that the family of Bobby P. Dupre, 85, announces his passing on Thursday, December 8th, 2022 at his home in Opelousas. A mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at Queen of Angels Catholic Church Monday, December 12th at 10:30 a.m.

A loving father, Bobby will be dearly missed by his two beloved daughters, Kelly Dupre of Opelousas and Meghan Dupre Montgomery, and her husband, Zachary Montgomery, of New Orleans. He is preceded in death by his parents, Cornelius and Jeanette Dupre of Opelousas, and his two brothers, John Dupre and Coty Dupre, both of Lafayette. Bobby was a life-long businessman and enjoyed nothing more than “holding court” and visiting with anyone and everyone; Bobby never met a stranger. He also devoted much of his life to philanthropy and held a strong belief in giving back to his community. His favorite part of every year was dressing up as Santa to raise money and bring awareness to those with Cerebral Palsy. Through all of his successes and endeavors, Bobby loved to remind people that he was “just a little boy from Plaisance.”

The Dupre family would like to extend their everlasting gratitude to his caretakers for their love and dedication. At the request of his family, visitation will take place at LaFond-Ardoin Funeral Home in Opelousas on Sunday, December 11, 2022, from 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. and reopen on Monday, December 12, 2022 from 8:00 a.m. until the time of his service. A Rosary will be prayed in his honor on Monday at 9:30 a.m.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you please consider a donation to the Opelousas Area Cerebral Palsy Clinic.
