Neves Terrebonne Jr. (Known as Neve J or T-Bone), passed away on February 19th, 2019 at 6:45 p.m. in El Dorado, Arkansas, where he became a resident since 2000. He was a native of Grand Isle, Louisiana born on August 25th, 1944 and lived a life being proud of telling people of his time on the Island. He loved fishing, trawling, and spending time with family and friends. He was a hard worker, loving husband, wonderful father, grandfather, and great grandfather to his children and step-children. He was a man that never put himself first and took care of everyone he loved. He touched everyone’s heart that he met.
He left behind his loving wife, Freida Terrebonne. He was a beloved father of daughter, Toni Terrebonne; son, Neves “Dago” Terrebonne III (wife-Shontell Terrebonne), and daughter, Terri Lynn Terrebonne Bourg (husband-Richie Bourg); step-daughter, Stephanie Davis Fletcher (husband-David Fletcher); and step-daughter, Jessica Davis Davis (husband-Luke Davis).

We were also all blessed to have him as a great grandfather to Fisher Mayard; and step-great grandfather to Maximus Bourg, Sutton Blanchard, Ronin Bourg, Lohen Blanchard, & Eleanor Polkey.
He was son of the late Neves Terrebonne and Pearline Collins Terrebonne. Everyone knew them for their great food and hospitality at Neves’ Restaurant, which they owned and operated from 1962-1983.
