Raphael James Lalonde, a cherished member of the Arnaudville community, was born in Arnaudville, Louisiana, on April 29, 1960. Raphael was a beloved son, father, grandfather, great grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend. His uplifting spirit and multitude of talents touched the lives of all who had the privilege of knowing him.

A talented fence builder by trade, Raphael's true passion lay in his love for training horses and preparing them for shows, working in his leather shop, and enjoying the outdoors while cooking on his "Coonass Microwave".

His diverse skills and generous nature allowed him to extend kindness and support to numerous family members and friends throughout his lifetime.
