Tim, as he was known by most, was born on Saturday, August 15, 1959, the fifth of six children born to the late Milton J. Thibodaux Sr. and the late Joyce Hebert Thibodaux.

Tim also served for many years as a reserve police officer with the Franklin Police 
Department and was currently working with the City of Franklin as the Director of Planning and Zoning. Tim enjoyed hunting and fishing, as well as NASCAR and Saints Football. But what he enjoyed most in life was time spent with his family, especially his twin grandsons, who filled his heart with joy. He will be deeply missed and lovingly remembered by all who were fortunate to have known him.
Those he leaves to cherish his memory include his wife of 31 years, Faith Guillotte Thibodaux; his son, Lucas Matthew Thibodaux and his wife Jennifer; his twin grandsons (also known as Paw Paw's boys), Logan and Landon Thibodaux; four siblings, Milton “Johnnie” Thibodaux Jr. and his wife Janet, Albert E. Thibodaux and his wife Lorraine, Gregory Thibodaux and his wife Cindy, and Jeannine Thibodaux Bertrand and her husband Alex; his godson, Skyler James Thibodaux; many nieces and nephews who thought the world of their uncle; as well as numerous family members and friends.
