Lane Begnaud, the 13-year-old whose neighbors banded together to give him one final Christmas, has died.

An eighth-grader at Fatima, Lane was an avid video game player and aspired to serve his community.

Lane's love for Christmas and his neighbors' love for their fellow man turned their neighborhood in Youngsville into a Christmas Wonderland in time for Lane to enjoy his favorite holiday one final time.

Relatives and friends of the family are invited to attend the visitation at Martin & Castille Funeral Home on Farrel Road in Lafayette on Tuesday, October 16, 2018, from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The funeral service will be private.

Our hearts are heavy for the Begnaud Family, and we hope that they hold their heads high knowing that Lane was able to bring his community together.

Merry Christmas, Lane.

(Martin & Castille)
