In memory of
Octave Whitney "Moose" Benoit Jr.
Octave Whitney "Moose" Benoit, Jr. passed away peacefully while surrounded by family on Friday, March 13, 2020 at the age of 86. Born in New Orleans, Louisiana to the late Octave and Cleo Lawson Benoit. Devoted husband of the late Martha Lanford Benoit for sixty-four years. Proud father of Rhonda Benoit Lodriguss, Connie Lynn Benoit, Craig Clifford Benoit, Paula Michelle Benoit and the late Donna Lori Benoit and William Gary Benoit. Cherished Grandpa of Lawrence (Larry) Lodriguss, Jr. and brother of the late Clarence S. Benoit. Moose served honorably in the Korean War with the U.S. Marine Corps. During this time, he met and married Martha in Washington, D.C. After returning to New Orleans to raise a family, he worked and retired from South Central Bell. Beloved by many friends, neighbors, schoolmates and co-workers, Octave was affectionately known as "Moose," "Ben" or "Junior." He was from a long line of Cajun lineage and enjoyed spending time at "the camp"; fishing, shrimping, cracking jokes and watching LSU / Saints games with a beer. Geaux Saints! Semper Fi! Moose will be deeply missed by all who knew him. An online guestbook is available at nola.com to share words of remembrance.
