Blane Vincent was born Apr. 26, 1987, and passed away Sunday, Feb. 4, 2024, at the age of 36.
Knowing Blane meant loving Blane. He was a soul unlike any other. Always there, no matter what, with a good joke to accompany that infectious laugh of his.
Blane was a lover of all things outdoors, from fishing to hunting. But he also loved cooking and tweaking his recipes. He spent most of his days fixing air conditioners then coming home to cook supper for Jessie and Rhett. And then end his days with a family Mario Cart battle and a bedtime story with Rhett.
He was our jelly making buddy, our food critic, our biscuit maker, our recipe writer, cast iron consultant, our brother, our buncle, and most of all our friend.
His tattoos told his story that we hope St. Peter took the time to read. That long boat finally finished that long turn.
Blane wasn’t afraid to admit his short comings with sobriety and mental health struggles. But sharing his testimony lifted others as well as himself.
Every fish at North Holbrook, every nubbing buck on Miller Road, every flounder and red down south, every mayhaw tree and muscadine vine in Southwest Louisiana and every man that ever had to face him in a cooking contest can all rest a little easier now.
All these things made Blane who he was but his greatest accomplishment was being a husband and dad. Jessie and Rhett were his everything.
He is survived by his wife, Jessica Vincent; son, Rhett “Bear” Alexander Vincent; twin brother, Shane Vincent and wife Caitlin; sister, Erika Buxton and husband Trent; father, James Trent Vincent and companion Sandra Eaddy; nieces, Brinlee, Bethanee, and Olivia; and nephew, Graham.
He was preceded in death by his mother, Becky Vincent; and grandparents, Kathy and Jim Stewart, Brenda and Ralph Hollie, and Butch and Dot Vincent.
