In Memory of Trae Lattie

Ralph Gordon Lattie III, known to all as Trae, passed away in the early morning of June 1, 2017.  He was only 23 years old.

Trae was a well loved son, brother, nephew, father, and friend.  He was caring, fun to be around, and was loved by everyone he met.  He treated everyone with dignity and respect, and always had a kind word.

Trae was a devoted father to his sons Grayson and Desmond.  He always made time to spend time and play with them.  He loved them very much.

Trae enjoyed hanging out with his many friends, going to concerts, playing frisbee golf, and working side by side with his dad for St. Cloud Maintenance, LLC as a maintenance man. 


Trae is survived by his sons Grayson and Desmond; father Ralph L. II; sisters Angela, Cynthia, Lindsay, and Autumn; brother Zach; grandmother Lucinda; and aunts and uncles Rick, LaWanna, Deborah, Marcella, Brenda, Victoria, and Vincent; and many cousins.


Due to the sudden loss of Trae, his family is unprepared for the expensive costs of memorial and funeral expenses.  The members of Trae's family live modest lives and the expense of funeral arrangements are an enormous financial burden. We are all coming together to ensure a perfect and beautiful remembrance for Trae. We want him to be laid to rest without inflicting financial hardship on those who are saying goodbye--particularly his father and immediate family.

Donations in excess of funeral costs will be donated to Suicide Awareness and Prevention programs.

We are asking for donations of any amount which can be made via the Donate link here, or directly to Ralph Lattie II.

Thank you, and God Bless!
