Obituary of Peter “Arnauld” Rochà

Peter “Arnauld” Rochà passed away peacefully at the age of 76 with his sister, brother-in-law, nieces, nephews, and other family members by his bedside on the night of June 12, 2020.  He was preceded in death by his father, Peter Rochà; his mother, Doris Cox Simon; as well as numerous aunts and uncles.  He is survived by his loving sister, Judith R. Smith (Richard); his younger brother, Charlie Rochà; five nieces and nephews, Charlie Rochà Jr., Audrey Rochà, Larry Dyess, Al Dyess, and Rodney Dyess and their husbands and wives; and fifteen great-nieces and nephews. Arnauld was born November 20, 1943 in Kansas City, Kansas and grew up in New Orleans, Louisiana. He graduated from Nichols High School and then went on to join the military as a member of the Louisiana National Guard, proudly serving the residents of Louisiana during Hurricane Betsy.  He continued to walk through life coming to the aid of and helping others until Jesus called him home.  Arnauld told jokes to everyone he met.  Most of the time it was the same joke but everyone would laugh each time as it was the first time they heard it.  His large smile was only dwarfed by the size of his huge heart. He collected everything, storing it at his house in the event someone needed it and someone always did.  He would always bring gifts to his family and friends.  He loved wrestling, attending the matches when he could, and then watching matches every time they came on TV, whether the others in the room wanted to watch it or not.  Arnauld was a member of the Sheet Metal Union, Local 11, later turning into Local 214.  He was a proud Union Member for most of his adult life and supported all of the Union functions and events.  He loved his land in Carriere, Mississippi and would care for it so that others could enjoy it as well.  Relatives and friends are invited to attend a visitation on Tuesday, June 16, 2020 at Audubon Funeral Home located at 61101 Highway 11 in Slidell, Louisiana 70458, beginning at 2:00 p.m. and followed by a Memorial Service at 4:00 p.m.  In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Arnauld’s memory to Hillcrest Baptist Church, where he was a faithful servant to the end (P.O.
