Robert James "Bob" Barrilleaux

Robert James "Bob" Barrilleaux, 82, of Biloxi, MS, died peacefully in his sleep at his home in Biloxi, MS, on October 26, 2021 after a brief illness. Mr. Barrilleaux was born in Biloxi on September 8, 1939 and remained a lifelong resident.

Mr. Barrilleaux retired from the United States Postal Service after 34 years of service. His hobby that he loved for so many years was woodworking. His specialty was kitchen cabinets, but he could do anything custom when asked. At one time he had a billiard company and built pool tables, probably stemming from his love of the game. He built both coin operated tables and beautiful ones for personal use.

In recent years, Bob's hobby was cooking, and he generously shared his creations with neighbors, his doctors and anyone else he thought would enjoy his pastime. Although he had a gruff exterior, Bob was a very generous man and those who knew him best knew he had a heart the size of the Gulf of Mexico. He will be missed by many.

Mr. Barrilleaux was preceded in death by his wife, Marjorie Barrilleaux; his parents, 0.J. "Babe" and Beatrice Barrilleaux; and his brothers, Roland and Gerald Barrilleaux.

Mr. Barrilleaux is survived by his son, Joseph Scott Barrilleaux; his daughter and son-in-law, Kimberly Marie and Charles Duncan; his stepsons, Thomas and Robert Linthurst; six grandchildren; numerous nieces and nephews and other relatives; and his beloved pups, Sugar and Spice.

The family would like to send a very special thank you to all the staff at Ocean Springs Hospital that had a part in treating Mr. Barrilleaux in his recent stay. You have all been amazing. We would also like to thank Dr. Alison Wall and her staff, longtime Dr. Paul Pavlov and staff, The Hospice of Light and last but not least, the employees and management of Your Choice Senior Care.

Funeral Services will be held at Bradford-O’Keefe Funeral Home on Howard Avenue in Biloxi on Saturday, October 30, 2021 at 1:00 pm. Friends may visit from 12:00 pm until service time. Interment will follow at Biloxi City Cemetery.
