Blake James Melancon, a lifelong resident of Belle River, who's journey here on earth unexpectedly ended, in Belle River, at the young age of 26.
Blake enjoyed his well-lived life doing the things that he loved, the crazier the better. There wasn't anything he wasn't afraid to try at least once.
Blake was strong willed, determined and competitive. To him nothing was impossible; a challenge was nothing more than an opportunity.
When it came to the DSRA boat races, Blake was the man to beat. After many of his races, he was the one waving that checkered flag. Blake also loved the outdoors, cooking, motorcross, foosball, and hanging out with his friends, those were some of the best times of his life. In the last few months, he was teaching himself to play the guitar which was a desire of his. Blake excelled at everything he put his mind to.
Most might remember him by always having a smile on his face. His passing has left a void that no one could ever fill and his bright happy memory will never be forgotten.
Blake is survived by two daughters Adleigh Grace and Aria Blakely Melancon both of Gonzales; his parents Randy and Karen Melancon of Belle River; one brother Dylan Melancon of Belle River; his maternal grandmother Lavinia Giroir of Belle River; his paternal grandmother Joyce Melancon of Belle River; two great-grandmothers Emelda Blanchard of Belle River and Elda Solar of Morgan City; his girlfriend Symone Landry of Pierre Part; and plenty of aunts, uncles, cousins, and countless friends.
Those welcoming Blake into heaven are two maternal grandfather's Monroe "JW" Lewis, Jr. and Dale Giroir, one paternal grandfather Robert "Bobby" Melancon; one cousin Christopher Lewis; three great-grandmothers; and three great-grandfathers.
A celebration of Blake's life will be held Tuesday, May 12, 2015, from 5:00 pm until 9:00pm at Hargrave Funeral Home; and continuing Wednesday, May 13, 2015 from 10:00 am until dismissal at 2:30 pm at Hargrave Funeral Home. A Mass of Christian burial will be at 3:00 pm at Holy Cross Catholic Church.
Blake will be laid to rest in the Church of God of Prophecy Cemetery in Belle River.
Blake touched so many hearts in his short time here on earth, the family request that everyone show their love for him by wearing their RBM or DSRA shirts on Wednesday, the day of the service.
