Dean Joseph Delaune passed away on Friday, October 8, 2021 surrounded by his loving family after a hard-fought battle with lung cancer. He was 56. He is survived by his loving wife of 34 years, Lisa Delaune; two daughters, Joelle Patty and husband Billy, and Ashley Tadda and husband Rick; two grandchildren, Will and Rynn Patty; two brothers, Terry Delaune and Terri Babineaux, and Barry Delaune and wife Rhonda; two sisters, JoAnn Bercegeay and husband Rodney, and Judy LaPorte and Brent Moran; and a host of godchildren, nieces, nephews, and other relatives and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, Joseph "J.R." and Daisy Delaune, and brother, Kerry Delaune. Dean was the proud owner of Delaune's Paint and Body Shop. He spent his spare time in Belle River at his beloved fishing camp. He was a loving family man and especially enjoyed his time with his grandchildren. To know Dean was to love him. He was truly one of a kind with a larger than life personality. He lived hard, played harder, and loved the hardest. He was always the first to extend a helping hand to anyone in need and went out of his way to make other people smile. Dean was unforgettable and will be dearly missed by so many. Family and friends of Dean are invited to attend the visitation on Wednesday, October 13, 2021 from 9:30am to 11:30am at Our Lady of the Holy Rosary Catholic Church in St. Amant with a Mass of Christian Burial immediately following.
