John Batiste Roux III
1945 - 2021
John Batiste Roux III was born in Baton Rouge on January 3, 1945 and passed away November 5, 2021 at the age of 76. He is preceded in death by his parents, Elain and John B. Roux Jr, daughter Johnette Roux and son John B. Roux IV. He is survived by his two sons, Troy Mitchell Roux and wife Lisa, Jordan Roux and fiancé Nicole Baker. Grandchildren, Brooklynn Cottingham and husband Daniel, Troy Mitchell Roux Jr., Amberlee Kessler and husband Ben, Chance Roux and Great Grandson, Canon Cottingham. His life long friends, Johnny Modica and Sarah Beard and his devoted companion of 20 years, Kathleen Robertson. John graduated from Baton Rouge High School and earned his degree from LSU. He worked for the Morning Advocate and then owned a Western Auto in Plaquemine for 15 years. Later, he was a Lobbyist for Governor Edwin Edwards. John was successful in every business venture he pursued. Especially the Wholesale car business for over 35 years. He was blessed with the gift of gab and a personality that drew you in. He was always willing to help others, an avid LSU fan, a wonderful cook and proud father of his children, grandchildren and great grandson. If you had the privilege of knowing him, you were very blessed. He will be sadly missed by family and friends. John accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord & Savior and is now in the arms of his Heavenly Father. No more sorrow, no more pain. "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness" - 2 Timothy 4:7-8. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. It is so hard to say goodbye, but baby we will meet again soon.. I love you- Kathleen.

Kathleen & John's family, we are so sorry for your loss. John sat at the dinning table next to our mom which is where we first met him when he came over & introduced himself. We always enjoyed talking with John & discussing life's issues good & bad. Hold onto those sweet memories & know he's in a better place next to our Lord & Saviour.
