Carroll Joseph Friloux

Carroll Joseph Friloux (also known by family and friends as "C.J". and "Rock") of Reserve, Louisiana, passed away on Friday, January 6, 2023, at the age of 89. He was born in Taft, Louisiana, to the late Edgar Joseph Friloux and Beatrice Robert Friloux. Carroll was a proud veteran of the U.S. Air Force. He was adventurous and enjoyed camping trips, organizing family vacations, and spending time with those he loved. Carroll was the favorite uncle among many of his nieces and nephews. He had a remarkable memory and was a man of great wisdom, teaching his children and grandchildren many things he knew. Carroll was an entrepreneur at heart, always coming up with new ideas, and he was very technically skilled, once working as a draftsman and capable of writing complex computer code. Some of his favorite hobbies were researching his family's genealogy and horticulture, especially caring for orchids. Carroll was a former member of Local 60 in Metairie and Local 537 in Boston. He was a resident of the Southeast Louisiana Veterans Home for the past few years, during which he thrived making many friends, playing booray, and strengthening his Catholic faith as he developed a closer relationship with God. Fittingly, Carroll passed away while praying the Rosary.

Carroll is survived by his children, Roxann Friloux Balado (Jo's Buddy), Craig Joseph Friloux, Quinn Anthony Friloux (Dodie), and Tammy Friloux Abene (Victor Jr.); grandchildren, Paige McLemore, Chad Foret, Cara Friloux, Alyce Johnson, Cassie Paille, Alex Friloux, Breanna Friloux, Paige Rushing, Ayla Guzzardo, Shanna Guzzardo, Victor Abene III, and Samuel Abene; 14 great grandchildren; former wife and mother of his children, Nilda Landry Gagneaux; sister, Iris Guidry (Joseph); and numerous beloved cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends.

In addition to his parents, Carroll was preceded in death by his siblings, Evelyn Pintado, Ray "Tiny" Friloux, and Marlene Friloux; and his grandparents, Ejare and Alice Robert (who he affectionately called "Poppa" and "Momma", and Thomas Erembert and Marie Friloux.
