Not to be confused with another Louisiana former state representative, Ronald Anthony Faucheux of New Orleans; the two were born in the same year five months apart.

Robert Ronald Faucheux, Jr., known as Bobby Faucheux (born November 28, 1950), is an attorney from LaPlace in suburban New Orleans, Louisiana, who served from 1996 to 2008 as a three-term Democrat state representative for District 57, which encompasses St. John the Baptist and James parishes.[1]

In November 1995, Faucheux defeated his fellow Democrat, Lloyd B. Johnson, 8,824 votes (51.1 percent) to 8,443 (48.9 percent) [2] to claim the seat vacated by another Democrat, Joseph Accardo, Jr.[3]

Faucheux was a member of the Judiciary, Ways and Means, and Natural Resources committees and the Joint Committee on Capital Outlay.[4] His first two terms of service corresponded with the two terms of Republican Governor Murphy James "Mike" Foster, Jr. Term limits prevented Faucheux from seeking a fourth term. District 57 now encompasses St. John the Baptist and St. Charles parishes.

He received his Bachelor of Science degree from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge and his Juris Doctorate from Loyola University New Orleans College of Law. Prior to 2005, he maintained a second office in Gramercy in St. James Parish. Faucheux is a member of the Louisiana Association of Trial Lawyers. He served as a Captain in the United States Army, a position which he left in 1978. He is a Roman Catholic and is married to the former Darlene Anne Bourgeois.[4] He currently practices law with his son, Christopher Faucheux, in LaPlace. He is the magistrate and town attorney for Gramercy.[5]
