Ville Platte

Robert “Bobby” Landreneau, beloved husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and uncle passed away peacefully at his home surrounded by his family on December 7, 2023.

He is survived by his loving wife of 65 years, Sybil Thibodeaux Landreneau and their four children, Melanie Gamberutti and her husband, Thomas of Lafayette, Rob Landreneau of Lafayette, Elizabeth Shaw of Pineville, and Rebecca Beene and Chad Hesnor of Reddell; eight grandchildren and fourteen great-grandchildren.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Wallace Landreneau and Lucille Lafleur Landreneau, five brothers, Douglas Landreneau, Donald Landreneau, Jimmy Landreneau, Stanley Landreneau and Gary Landreneau, two sisters, Yvonne Wade and Lorraine Vidrine, and one grandson, Jordan Ray Verrette.

Bobby fell in love with photography at a young age, opening his first photography studio in his parents front yard at only sixteen years old. He went on to operate the very successful Landreneau’s Studio in Ville Platte for over 30 years. He was also an independent insurance agent. Bobby was honored by being inducted into the Gulf States Region Independent Agent Hall of Fame. His happiest place was doing what he loved most, collecting, and restoring antique furniture, which he said, “all had a story to tell.” His other passion was gardening. Bobby was an avid gardener and owned and operated a large nursery in T-Mamou for several years.
