LSU Tigers quarterback, Myles Brennan, along with his girlfriend Erin recently created a Bobby Hebert Sr. COVID-19 Relief Fund. Proceeds from the fund will go to the Ochsner Clinic Foundation.” Erin, grandaughter of Hebert Sr., was quoted said that the OCF “meant so much to Papa Bobby.”
“In the midst of a dark time in the state of Louisiana, Erin Hebert and her boyfriend, Myles Brennan, have come together to raise money to assist in fighting this global pandemic. Never did Erin and Myles think that this pandemic would hit them so close to home. On March 28, 2020 at 10:58 am, Erin’s grandfather, whom she called Poppa, Bobby J. Hebert Sr., passed away at Ochsner Medical Center in Kenner, Louisiana due to complications from COVID-19. To honor Erin’s grandfather, Erin and Myles decided to create this fund. The proceeds will go to the Ochsner Clinic Foundation—an organization that meant so much to Poppa Bobby.
Bobby Sr. was born and raised on Bayou Lafourche in Cut Off, Louisiana. He loved the people of his community and embraced his Cajun culture. Since his passing, many have referred to Bobby Sr. as “the face of the bayou.” He often talked to everyone in the room just because he loved interacting with people. Bobby Sr. hugged people he met like he had known them his whole life. He made everyone feel like the most important person, even if he had only known you for a few minutes. Bobby Sr. was a man of faith, family, and football. He leaves behind a loving wife, 3 sons, 11 grandchildren, and 4 great-grandchildren that he loved dearly.”
