Birth: Dec. 16, 1950
Death: Jun. 2, 2002

Long-time anchorman and chef for WAFB-TV in Baton Rouge. He took his own life after a string of personal problems, including several arrests for driving under the influence. He was also rumored to be a client of notorious madame Sylvia Landry, but was never charged with any wrongdoing. Despite his tumultuous off-screen life, he was very popular on Baton Rouge television, and his passion for his native Cajun culture led him to showcase some of his family's favorite recipes in news segments. At the time of his death, he was operating a Cajun restaurant in Baton Rouge.
