Ray Michael Gaudet was born on March 30, 1946 and entered into enteral rest on December 5, 2023. He was a native of Raceland in Lafourche Parish, Louisiana and resided in Westwego, Louisiana.

Late husband of Jane Gaudet, whom he loved dearly and never stopped making sure she was cared for.

He is survived by his children Rickey (Lediana), Jody (Sherry), former daughter-in-law Stacy Gaudet, Robin Thibodeaux (Brian), his brothers Nolan and Arthur Gaudet, his stepchildren Jan Ingram (Chetti), Anthony Brown, Laurie Vincent (Timmy), Denise Turberville-Guerrero and his 13 grandchildren and 20 great grandchildren.

Ray retired in 2010 from Avondale Shipyards after 45 years of dedicated service as Ship Superintendent. He and Jane loved to travel. They experienced many places here and many countries abroad. He enjoyed eating out with the Avondale Gang, fishing, going to the casino with friends and family and loved his SAINTS football team.

Special thanks to the many Ochsner doctors, nurses and St. Catherine’s Hospice for their compassionate care.
