Tibby's Story

Walter Tabony was born in the Big Easy. He was a kid during the Great Depression. He was a teen while fighting in brutal battles in the Pacific during World War II. After the war he built his home in the Lower 9th Ward and built a fish camp on Bayou Bienvenue. In September 2005, he found shelter in the dome but lost everything to the waters of Katrina. Tibby was a survivor. He was married to his wife Rita since 1945. He was a fan of the Saints since 1967. Tibby would brag of his plans if the Saints ever made the Super Bowl: “Breakfast would be beignets at Cafe du Monde at the French Market and then a two-block walk for Bloody Marys at the Court of Two Sisters. Catch a Mardi Gras parade on Canal Street and grab an oyster po-boy at Johnny’s in the Quarter. I’ll then stroll over to the Superdome parking lot for tailgating and enjoy an early dinner at Galatoire’s. Taste some Hurricanes at Pat O Brien’s and then watch the Saints win the Super Bowl at the Absinthe House. I would head back to Canal Street for another parade and then close out the night on Bourbon Street. After the celebration I would sleep all day on Monday.” Tibby lived to be 93. He was an Uncle that would share his stories and share his love. We created this place in his honor.
