Celtics fan is remembered at funeral just as he lived

Matthews was an 18-year-old resident of New Orleans who was tragically killed in a shooting back on June 26.

In photos, Matthews is seen sitting upright in a chair while wearing a Kyrie Irving Celtics jersey and playing video games with a controller in his hand. So much so, that his family wanted to remember him that way at his wake on Sunday. He also donned socks brandishing the likeness of Kyrie Irving, the Celtics player that wears the number 11 shirt, the same that Matthews wore.

During his wake at Charbonnet Labat Glapion Funeral Home in Treme, Matthews' family chose to remember him with what he loved most.

The realistic tribute to Matthews also came with the teenager surrounded by some of his favorite snacks, including cereal, Doritos, zebra cakes, and a root beer.

The tragic youngster had been out walking his dog when he was shot and robbed of his cellphone.

Renard was be buried in his beloved Celtics jersey on Tuesday morning.
