Jude was born in Port Arthur, TX to Viola L. and Clifford A. Hebert on January 23, 1942. He went to school at Bishop Byrne High School in Port Arthur, TX, graduating early through night school.  He married Ann Miller on November 19, 1960, in Port Arthur, TX.  Prior to retirement, he worked as an instrument mechanic for Dupont Sabine River Works. Jude was known by all as someone who was exceptional in working with his hands, particularly with wood-based projects—no project was too large. As a young man, with limited use of power tools, he built by hand a sailboat that fueled his love of the water and boating for many years. As a parishioner of St. Henry’s, he worked alongside many able men to remodel the beautiful church and additional building projects. He served for years as a Director of Pony League Baseball in Bridge City, helping many young men develop skills for their future.

 

Jude is preceded in death by his parents, Viola and Clifford, his brother Marvin, and his sisters Mary Margaret (Pinky), and Joyce.

 

Jude is survived by his wife of 58 years Ann Gail (Miller) Hebert and four sons: Troy and wife, Anita of Magnolia; Trent and husband, William of Houston; Thane and wife, Cyndee of Indianapolis, IN; and Taran and wife, Crystal of Orangefield; six grandchildren: Cressa, Jared, Matthew, Lauren, Caleb, Hannah, and one great granddaughter Briley.

 

Pallbearers will be Troy, Trent, Thane, Taran, Jared, and Matthew.

 

The family wishes to extend our sincere appreciation to the loving, caring, and patient staff at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Beaumont, TX.
