He is survived by his loving wife of 52 years, Connie Ann Pitre Viguerie, his children, John Viguerie, Jr. (Michelle Chow Viguerie), Matthew Viguerie (Errin Flynn Viguerie), Benjamin Viguerie (Megan Jewel Viguerie), and Anne Viguerie; grandchildren John Tre’ Viguerie, III, Derrick Viguerie, Hayden Viguerie, Dylan Viguerie, Jack Viguerie, Samantha Smith, and Cooper Smith; siblings Martha Thibodeaux and Anthony “Tony” Viguerie (Joyce Viguerie) along with an abundance of Pitre in-laws, nieces, nephews, Godchildren, and cousins.

To know him was to love him. His great love of family, friends, co-workers, and customers created a life of happiness and joyful memories that remained with him forever. His creativity and work ethic kept him busy until he could move no more. His love of children and grandchildren, storytelling, nature, gardening, classic cars, and cooking filled his days with pleasure. He was a true servant, always putting others first. He was a pharmacist for 40 years but spoke of his greatest achievements being his children, grandchildren, and love-filled marriage. In his own words, “Don’t mourn for me! I’ve had it ALL!”
