Matthew is survived by his mother, Faye Trahan Parker; sons, Keith Anthony Trahan and Matthew Jon Parker Jr.; sister, Cassie Mae Parker; nephew/sous-chef, Alijah Ted Parker; grandmother, Evelyn Hebert Trahan; godmother, Cheryl Trahan Sanford; and numerous loving aunts, uncles, cousins, family and friends.

Matthew was a simple man, but certainly one of a kind. He was a protective and loving son, big brother, father, uncle, and on his way to becoming a tugboat Captain. For those that knew him, one of his greatest loves was cooking and feeding others, carrying on the legacy of his father. Their favorite motto, “Eat, Drink and Be Merry”
