  • A New Orleans man was honored at his wake with some of his favorite things

Friends and family gathered in New Orleans to remember Matthews the way they knew him best.

Matthews was positioned to be sitting in a chair, with a Playstation controller in his hands, with some of his favorite snacks by his side. She said her son was a big fan of Irving.

The family of 18-year-old Renard Matthews is getting a lot of attention for the way they are honoring his memory.

For Renard's funeral ceremony, the family opted to stage his body as if he were playing his favourite game - NBA2K - while wearing a Boston Celtics shirt and eating Doritos crisps.

The teen's mom, Temeka, told WGNO that her son was a bit of a homebody and had only recently started venturing outside before he was killed in a shooting on June 25.

The body of a dead teenager, Renard Matthews, was dressed and propped up in a chair while surrounded by his favourite snacks for a weird memorial service held by his family.

During his remembrance on Sunday, the family had Matthews preserved and placed in stance that reflected his low-key lifestyle.
