VT Halter Marine sets up memorial fund for Thibodeaux family

PASCAGOULA, MS (WLOX) - VT Halter Marine has set up a memorial fund for the Thibodeaux family. The 66-year-old Pascagoula man died Monday around 11 at VT Halter Marine shipyard in Pascagoula.

"Clearly, our hearts go out to the Thibodeaux family as we are assisting them in any way that we can. By starting a memorial fund for the family, we hope in some small way this will ease their burden at such a difficult time," Chief Executive Officer Bill Skinner.

Donations may be made to the Lee Boy Thibodeaux Memorial Fund at any Wells Fargo branch along the Gulf Coast.

Mr. Thibodeaux worked at VTHM for nine years, and he will be remembered as a dedicated employee.
