In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a brother, Robley "Kee Kee" Perez, Jr.; and a sister, Angela "Polly" Perez. Pallbearers will be Marty Perez, Craig Perez, Vince Perez, Trong Nguyen, Koy Perez, Adam Perez, and Trent Nguyen. Honorary pallbearers are Thai Nguyen, Edward Menard, Jr., Kyle Reaux, Elijah Pauley, and Tyler Pauley. The family would like to extend their heartfelt appreciation to Nurse’s Specialty Home Health, especially Ms. Ann; to A & L Personal Care; and to his sitter, Hillary Price for extraordinary care.
