Robert Allen Foret (Bobby) passed away on Wednesday, March 25, 2015 after a three month long battle with leukemia. He was 74. Beloved husband of Kathleen Ferro Foret for 51 years. Loving father of Bobby Foret, Jr. and Ann Marie Foret and brother of Theodore Foret, Jr. (Juie). Also survived by sister-in-law Marilyn Davis (Dave) and a host of nieces and nephews. Son of the late Theodore and Annie Foret and step-son of Ms. Corrine Foret. Bobby was born and raised in New Orleans and has lived in Metairie for the last 20 years. He was a marine surveyor and charter member of the Marine Surveyors Guild. Bobby attended St. Aloysius High School and Auburn University where he played football on scholarship. He was a true sportsman. In his younger days he loved playing and watching all forms of sports. In his later years his focus was on football, especially his Auburn Tigers, and the “ponies”. He spent many a Saturday at OTB with his running buddy Dave trying to pick the next big winner. He loved the outdoors, especially fishing where he enjoyed the solitude of the family camp in Grand Isle where fish stories were abundant. Bobby was a Man of Manresa. He will be dearly missed.
