Don Wayne was a veteran, having proudly served his country in the United States Army National Guard. One of his greatest joys during his life was that of being an accomplished musician, drummer, and singer. Don Wayne also took great pride in being a loving father to his son Clint Lafleur of Ville Platte, step-son Justin Lafleur of Grand Prairie, and three daughters: Connie Cheramie Hall and husband David of Hattisburg, Mississippi, Tammy Lafleur Kalb of Lafayette, and Tressa Lafleur Fontenot and husband Doug of Lafayette. Also left behind to cherish his memory is his former wife Judy Lafleur of Grand Prairie, brother John Burke Lafleur of Mamou, sister Betty Lafleur Hight and husband Bill of Mamou, and ten grandchildren: Kade, Alex, Dylan, Dustin, Christopher, Taylor, Summer, Jaxtyn, Edison, and Rachell.
He now rests with his parents Joseph Kirtly and Anna Lafleur and his brother Joseph Kirtly Lafleur, Jr. Their reunion is sure to be a joyous one filled with laughter and music.
