Robert Joesph Due

Robert Joseph Due, 65, of Nederland, died Wednesday, January 4, 2017, at Harbor Hospice, Beaumont. A native of Beaumont, he was born on February 24, 1951, to Mae Marie Fryou Due and Woodrow Wilson Due. Robert was a Sales Manager at Rent-A-Center, Inc.

He never met a stranger. Robert could talk to anyone which definitely helped his life long career as a salesman.  He took immense pride in his work and was rewarded with numerous accomplishments and recognition everywhere he worked.

Robert loved entertaining his friends and family. He would throw something on the BBQ pit or boil crawfish and crabs and spend his day making sure everyone had a good time. He also enjoyed spending time on the water. That could mean boating, fishing, crabbing, or just hanging out with loved ones at the beach.

He was proud of his Cajun heritage. Robert loved taking trips down the bayou to visit his relatives and eat what he called "the best food in the world".

Family was the most important thing to him. That includes his sisters, cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends that he considered family. He adored his daughter and grand-pup. Chances are everyone who knew him was repeatedly treated to pictures of Jamie and/or Lexie.

Robert will be greatly missed but he will live on in our hearts and memories forever.

Survivors include his daughter, Jamie Due of Nederland; Jamie’s Mom, Connie Roblyer of Nederland; his sister, Michelle Hobbs and her husband, Ken of, Beaumont; beloved grand pup, Lexie; and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.

He is preceded in death by his parents and sister, Sharon Rose Allen.
