Our beloved brother Randy Monette, also known as Ran, Randeen, Tomato Head, or Big Head, unexpectedly died on Saturday, June 26th; which happened to be the same day he was born 55 years ago. Randy was born to the late Stanley Monette, Sr. and Pearly LaBom Monette in Natchitoches, LA. Randy passed away in the comfort of his home, where he was surrounded by his loving sisters. Randy lived most of his life in Cloutierville, LA. He was a very kind, giving person and a “Jack of All Trades.” Randy was often called on by community members when they needed help with certain tasks. Randy had many skills such as plumbing, electrical, carpentry and small engine repair. He had a deep passion for cooking. One of Randy’s many specialties was the art of making hot tamales, in which he acquired the technique from his beloved late mother. Randy also enjoyed making hog cracklins that he often shared with his family and friends. Although Randy never had any biological children to call his own, he was a father and grandfather figure to some. Randy truly had a love for children. Randy enjoyed when his nieces, nephews and their children came to visit. He will be greatly missed by many people. We can find comfort in knowing that he is now at peace with his Heavenly family. Those who remain to cherish his memory include his life partner, Debra Pikes of Natchitoches, his sisters, Jannie LaCour (Gerald) of Cloutierville; Rachel Moran (Sidney) of Pineville, LA; Veronica Monette of Atlanta, GA; Nenie LaCour (Craig) of Natchitoches, LA; Betty Monette of Alexandria, LA; and a host of nieces, nephews, family and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents: Stanley Monette, Sr. and Pearly LaBom Monette, and his two brothers: Stanley Monette, Jr & Clayton “Snapper” Monette. He will live in our hearts and never be forgotten. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11 am Thursday, July 1, 2021 at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Cloutierville, LA with burial of his ashes to follow at St. John the Baptist Catholic Cemetery. A recitation of the Holy Rosary will be held at 10:30 am on the 1st at the church. The family will receive friends from 9:30 am until 10:30 am at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church.
