Dean Joseph Delaune passed away on Friday, October 8, 2021 surrounded by his loving family after a hard-fought battle with lung cancer. He was 56. He is survived by his loving wife of 34 years, Lisa Delaune; two daughters, Joelle Patty and husband Billy, and Ashley Tadda and husband Rick; two grandchildren, Will and Rynn Patty; two brothers, Terry Delaune and Terri Babineaux, and Barry Delaune and wife Rhonda; two sisters, JoAnn Bercegeay and husband Rodney, and Judy LaPorte and Brent Moran; and a host of godchildren, nieces, nephews, and other relatives and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, Joseph “J.R.” and Daisy Delaune, and brother, Kerry Delaune. Dean was the proud owner of Delaune’s Paint and Body Shop. He spent his spare time in Belle River at his beloved fishing camp. He was a loving family man and especially enjoyed his time with his grandchildren. To know Dean was to love him. He was truly one of a kind with a larger than life personality. He lived hard, played harder, and loved the hardest. He was always the first to extend a helping hand to anyone in need and went out of his way to make other people smile. Dean was unforgettable and will be dearly missed by so many. Family and friends of Dean are invited to attend the visitation on Wednesday, October 13, 2021 from 9:30am to 11:30am at Our Lady of the Holy Rosary Catholic Church in St. Amant with a Mass of Christian Burial immediately following.

I’m sad that Dean is gone. I considered him a true friend and confidant. He was that guy you could share with and he always had advice that was spot on. Dean was extremely proud of his family and loved Lisa dearly.
I always left Dean with a smile on my face and feeling better.
I love you my friend and hope that the fish in heaven are always biting

I will always remember the great neighbor he was, always laughing and cutting up. He was a joy to be around and just a great person. He gave my son his first job and was a great friend to us all. You will be missed!! Lisa my prayers are with you and your family!!!

My heart and prayers go out to you and your family. When I came to town, Barry introduced me to Dean. He took me in like I was part of his family. His smile, gift of kindness, and positive attitude has always inspired me! So sad to lose such a wonderful gentleman…but I know he always was striving for me and others to be happy! May sweet memories bring you comfort! He is one of the good ones and we will all miss him!

We are sending our sincere condolences to y’all. Dean was such a sweet man. He always had a smile. I appreciated all the help he gave Kenny. I’m sure they have found each other and are having a cold one. May Dean rest in God’s loving arms and out of pain. God bless y’all and Dean.

To Dean's family,

I was an old school friend of years past. Today, I heard the sad news of your family's loss. How nice to know he grew into a great man, having a loving family, building lifetime friends and relationships; a business.

He will be remembered as the nice guy that he was. My sympathies to all that knew, loved and cherished him.

God bless.

Deepest condolences to the family and family-of-friends of Dean Delaune. No words were more true "to know him is to love him". God gave Dean to us all to know and love and for that we all will be forever gratefully blessed. If it wasn't for our family-of-friends who introduced us to Dean, our lives would not be as enriched. Yes we initially took our car to him to be repaired; but his expertise was not only in fixing cars, it was really in sharing his love of life with people. Today we cannot remember what it was that he repaired; but we will always remember our moments with him. What a gift he had and no doubt passed on to his children. We remember bringing him a petrified stone and that seemed to 'make his day'; but it gave us immeasurable joy just to see him light-up and hear him talk about his fascination with rocks.
Dean, may you be blessed with the Face of Almighty God!
