John Richard Breaux

October 8, 1937 ~ May 13, 2019

John Richard “Squirt” Breaux passed away on May 13th, 2019.  He began his life on October 8, 1937, in Gum Cove Louisiana with his parents John Louis Breaux and Matilda Landry Breaux.

 John grew up in a family of farmers and worked alongside his father until graduating from Vinton High School in 1956.  He attended McNeese State University, completing his degree in Geology, and following that served in the United States Army.  He was then employed by Baroid as a Mud Engineer.  His father offered him the opportunity to return to farming and he was in that vocation for many years.  When agriculture in Louisiana began it’s decline, John returned to McNeese to certify to teach high school chemistry.  His teaching career began at Vinton High School and continued at Cypress/Fairbanks High School in Houston, Texas until his retirement in 2003.  He was a favorite teacher to many of his students.

 John married his high school sweetheart, Una Mae Perdreauville in 1958.  He was a devoted husband and a giving father to four children.  John loved being outdoors and was an extremely hard worker, no matter if it was teaching his students or building his own retirement home.

 Those left to cherish his memory include his children, Michelle (Leslie) Breaux of Texas, Traci and husband Marcel Guidroz of Moss Bluff, Cassie and husband Jim Beam of Montgomery, TX, and John Cody Breaux and wife Valerie of  Montgomery, TX; brother, Wimpy Breaux and wife Betty of Lafayette;  grandchildren Christie Mokry, Patti Mokry, Lauren Breaux, Kaylin Guidroz, Brendon Guidroz, Olivia Breaux, and Bennett Breaux; great-grandchildren Aiden Mokry,  Maesyn LaFleur, and Aspen Guidroz; and numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, John and Matilda Breaux; his brothers Shelby “Buddy” Breaux and Edwin Breaux, sister-in-law Mary Francis Breaux; and his wife of almost 50 years, Una Mae Breaux.

 Having been a life-long Catholic, John will be remembered at a mass of Christian burial at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Sulphur on Friday, May 24, 2019 at 10 A.M. with Father Tim Goodly officiating. The family will receive friends on Thursday, May 23, 2019 from 4-8 P.M. with a rosary at 6:30 P.M. to be held at Johnson & Robinson Funeral Home in Sulphur, Louisiana.  He will be laid to rest at Mimosa Pines Cemetery South in Carlyss under the direction of Johnson and Robison Funeral Home.

Memories Timeline


  1. Traci & the Breaux Family, I am so sorry for your loss.  Our prayers go out to you all, especially this week as you spend time together honoring him.  Much love, Sage Morrison (friend of Traci’s) 

  2. Sorry for the loss of your loved one. My deepest sympathy and condolences goes out to you and your family. The Bible calls Jehovah (Psalms 83:18) the source of life Acts 17:24,25 so have faith that Jehovah is certainly capable of restoring life to someone who has died so be assured that you will see your loved one again. Jehovah sees death as the enemy 1 Corinthians 15:26 and I pray he gives you comfort in your time of need. There have been eight instances in the Bible of humans young, old, male, and female who Jehovah brought back to life on earth John 11:39-44 and he yearns to bring back your loved one who are in his memory Job 14:14,15. I pray that Jehovah of comfort gives you strength and the ability to endure during this time and that you rely on him when you feel weak. In Jesus name I pray Amen

  3. I am so sorry for your loss. Joe and I will keep you in our prayers. Your Mom and Dad were always so nice. Love you. 

  4. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all as you walk this journey with your Dad to bring him Home.  Such a beautiful man will never truly be gone, for he has left such a loving presence in your hearts.  We feel blessed that we were able to stop by and say ‘Hello’.  Much love & light to you Mee and all your family. Marc & Lynda – Canada 

  5. We send our prayers and peace to all of the family. We had some happy memories of our school days with Squirt and Una Mae. Alton was from the class of 56 and I was from the class of 57. Alton has many fond memories of his time with Squirt in Ged. As I had with Una Mae from our school days. They are now together again in Heaven.
