Wayne Michael Provost, a retired Master Electrician, was born in New Iberia, LA on May 18, 1967, and was a 1985 graduate of St. Martinville Senior High School. He proudly served our country in the U.S. Marine Corp, where he spent a year of his four-year tour in Okinawa, Japan. His time in the military shaped him into the honorable and principled man that everyone knew and respected.

Wayne excelled not only in his career but also in various passions that made his life extraordinary. From a young age, he discovered his love for boxing and started honing his skills at the age of 11. His dedication and talent led him to be inducted into the Marine Corp Hall of Fame for boxing, a testament to his remarkable abilities in the ring. 

Wayne had a deep affection for horses, finding solace and companionship in their gentle presence. He found joy and tranquility in their company, forming a special bond that brought him immense happiness throughout his life.

An avid football enthusiast, Wayne's heart belonged to LSU and the Saints. His passion for the game was infectious, and he reveled in cheering for his favorite teams. 

Above all else, Wayne cherished spending time with his family. Their love and support were the foundation of his life. 

Mr. Provost is survived by his wife, Jodie Hosley Provost; loving daughters, Alynn Dugas (Devin), and Hannah Provost; parents, Ronald Sr. and Sharon Boudreaux Provost; brother, Ronald “Boo” Provost Jr. (Shannon); sister, Shara Sonnier (Patches); niece, Alexis Sonnier; nephews, Chaz Provost and Brandon Romero; great-niece, Rylee Provost; and great-nephew, Mason Provost. 

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Gilman and Gert Provost, Audrey Mae Provost, and Alton and Ella Boudreaux.
