He was always so willing to work overtime and do whatever he needed to do to provide the best for his family. A true sports enthusiast, Joseph excelled not only as a beloved coach but also as an outstanding baseball player, known for his skills in the batter's box.

      Joseph is preceded in death by his parents, Robert Leon and Anna Lee Breaux; son, Robert "Bobby" Breaux; brother, Robert L. Breaux; half-brother, Claude Moore; and sisters, Dorothy Cross and Yvonne Powell.
