   Thibodaux Senior Mayor of the Day   

May 2005

City of Thibodaux, LA
Mr. Gibbens Robichaux


Nominated by the Thibodaux Chamber of Commerce:
Many people throughout Thibodaux know Mr. Gibbens for his Tid Bits column through the Chamber of Commerce; others know him for his musical talents at weddings, funerals and church; early birds have even listened to his witty charm on KTIB dialog.  Today, a wonderful term described the newly Senior Mayor... "He's like the 'Bob Hope' of the Thibodaux community."  So it was just perfect for him to be our Senior Mayor.

'Mayor' Gibbens was born Richard Thomas Gibbens Robichaux... but his mom called him Gibbens for short.  As he spoke of his memoirs (in which he's already written down), we learned a little more about his life growing up in Thibodaux, his years at Spring Hill college, and his service in the Air Force.  He and his wife, Joann, have 4 children and 7 1/2 grandchildren.  (His youngest son's wife is expecting... so Mr. Gibbens says it's actually 7 2/9 grandchildren).  'Mayor' Gibbens has been married for 58 years.  He still loves to play music and has a passion for writing.
