Renard Matthews Remembered by Family in Unique Way at Wake

New Orleans' WDSU-TV identified the man as Renard Matthews, saying he died June 25 after being shot in the head.

Temeka, the mother to Matthews, revealed during an interview with a local news station WGNO, that her late son was a football and basketball fan - his favourite athlete was Celtics guard Kyrie Irving. At his wake Sunday at the Charbonnet Labat Glapion Funeral Home in Treme, he was photographed by relatives wearing a Celtics jersey, holding a video game controller and sitting next to his favorite snacks.

With the burial scheduled for Tuesday, hopefully close friends and family members of Renard were able to visit him over the weekend, as his life was celebrated in distinct fashion.

While his family tries to deal with the bad tragedy, they have chosen to say goodbye in a unique, but loving way. He also donned socks brandishing the likeness of Kyrie Irving, the Celtics player that wears the number 11 shirt, the same that Matthews wore. Police have not yet arrested a suspect.
