Blake James Melancon February 7, 1989 – May 8, 2015

Blake James Melancon, a lifelong resident of Belle River, who’s journey here on earth unexpectedly ended, in Belle River, at the young age of 26. Blake enjoyed his well-lived life doing the things that he loved, the crazier the better. There wasn't anything he wasn't afraid to try at least once. Blake was strong willed, determined and competitive. To him nothing was impossible; a challenge was nothing more than an opportunity. When it came to the DSRA boat races, Blake was the man to beat. After many of his races, he was the one waving that checkered flag. Blake also loved the outdoors, cooking, motorcross, foosball, and hanging out with his friends, those were some of the best times of his life. In the last few months, he was teaching himself to play the guitar which was a desire of his. Blake excelled at everything he put his mind to. Most might remember him by always having a smile on his face. His passing has left a void that no one could ever fill and his bright happy memory will never be forgotten. Blake is survived by two daughters Adleigh Grace and Aria Blakely Melancon both of Gonzales; his parents Randy and Karen Melancon of Belle River; one brother Dylan Melancon of Belle River; his maternal grandmother Lavinia Giroir of Belle River; his paternal grandmother Joyce Melancon of Belle River; two great-grandmothers Emelda Blanchard of Belle River and Elda Solar of Morgan City; his girlfriend Symone Landry of Pierre Part; and plenty of aunts, uncles, cousins, and countless friends. Those welcoming Blake into heaven are two maternal grandfather’s Monroe “JW” Lewis, Jr. and Dale Giroir, one paternal grandfather Robert “Bobby” Melancon; one cousin Christopher Lewis; three great-grandmothers; and three great-grandfathers. A celebration of Blake’s life will be held Tuesday, May 12, 2015, from 5:00 pm until 9:00pm at Hargrave Funeral Home; and continuing Wednesday, May 13, 2015 from 10:00 am until dismissal at 2:30 pm at Hargrave Funeral Home. A Mass of Christian burial will be at 3:00 pm at Holy Cross Catholic Church. Blake will be laid to rest in the Church of God of Prophecy Cemetery in Belle River. Blake touched so many hearts in his short time here on earth, the family request that everyone show their love for him by wearing their RBM or DSRA shirts on Wednesday, the day of the service.

A part of me left with you when you went. It's a void in my life that will never be filled, but I know you wouldn't want any of us to slow down our own lives to grieve over you. You had to follow a greater calling. As your brother you've left me with plenty of memories that I will cherish forever and never forget. I am going to miss having my security blanket to get me out of whatever trouble I was in late at night because I didn't want to worry mom or dad. You were always there for me when I needed you. I will try to live the rest of my life on this earth in your honor the way you would live it which includes looking after those two beautiful girls you brought into our lives. I love you bro. Fly high up there. #TeamBlake333

Karen, Randy, Dylan and all those that loved Blake James...
There are no words that can be said to ease the pain that you are feeling right now. And if there were I surely would say them. I just want you all to know that I am so sorry for the loss of such an awesome young man. Just know that although he is not physically here with you all, he is here in your hearts, your minds and in all the great memories he leaves behind. And through those 2 beautiful babies of his. I can't imagine your pain, but know I miss him too. He was my cousin and I loved him dearly. I watched him grow up into the handsome, charming, fun guy he was whose smile could light up any room he walked in to. He is missed and will forever be. He is loved and forever will be. And his memory will live on always. Love you guys and am here if you need anything.

No words can really express how I feel, & how heart broken I am now that you're gone. You were such an amazing person, and I won't ever forget that about you. You always knew how to make someone have a good day when they were having a bad one. Miss you so much! #flyhigh #333

Some People come into our lives and leave footprints in our hearts and we are never the same. Blake was a strong, dedicated, competitive and driven young man who inspired and touched many lives. He often pushed my buttons a lot but also made me laugh more. He was so careless and free. I was always jealous of that. He was always the life of any party. I miss seeing him in his shed doing what he loved best. My heart goes out to his family especially his two daughters. Our hearts are saddened by his loss and my thoughts and prayers are forever with everyone. When someone becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure. Love and miss you always Blake. RIP #333

Having to deal with losing my "first" first cousin was the hardest thing I've been through in my first 28 years on Earth. Within three days of laying you to rest, you came to me in my dreams to assure me that you were alright, and that everything would be okay. Every time I think of you, I hear "See You Again" by Wiz Khalifa within 10 minutes. I love you cuz! I wish I had a final chance to tell you that. Since I don't, I'll promise to keep our family in my thoughts from here on out. I will express my love for everyone every single chance I get. YOU taught me that.

My best memory of you is when we went out to last call one night. At the bar's closing, you decided to blaze "Billie Jean" in your truck, climbed to the top of your truck, stripped to your boxers, and danced for everyone to see! (Police officers included)

Till we meet again! Take care up there, and say hello to POP for me!
