Support the funeral of Rod Lavenant

Roderick Lavenant passed away at the young age of 40 on Tuesday, October 9 after suffering a traumatic brain injury. He fought hard for a week before passing on this week. He was a faithful and beloved son, grandson, brother, cousin, nephew, friend, and boyfriend and we can't even begin to express how much he will be missed. He was always the life of the party, had a contagious laugh, loved the Dallas Cowboys and Texas country music, and  above all, he loved his people hard. Anything you can do to help us cover a portion of funeral costs and properly celebrate Rod's life will be so appreciated.

Wednesday October 17, 10am Funeral Mass at Sacred Heart Church 115 Kinney St. Crystal City, Texas 78839
