Mr. Hubert Benoit, the father of long-time ADR members, sons Craig, Jason and Dean Benoit, and daughter Tracy Benoit Barrett, died early on Tuesday morning, September 13, 2016, after a long battle with cancer.
Mr. Benoit was a big supporter of Acadiana Dirt Riders, and was considered by many an “honorary” member. In years past he was often seen working the road crossings on race weekend. His son Jason recalls, “He loved to do that, and talked about how he enjoyed all of our ADR family.”
He was a skilled craftsman and generous person, as many ADR trail bosses can attest, who were recipients of his handmade knives and model pirogues.
A gathering of family and friends will be this Friday, September 16th from 8:30am to 11:00am, with a funeral Mass following, all at St Bridget Catholic Church, 100 Hwy 311, Schriever, LA 70395.
