Brent Zachary Allain was greeted as he walked through Heaven’s Gates by his beloved grandmother, Clara Zachary, on September 28, 2017. Surrounded by loved ones, Mr. Allain, 40, passed away at Lake Charles Memorial Hospital following his struggle with a debilitating illness.
He was a 1995 graduate of Sulphur High School. He served with the Louisiana National Guard. In his early twenties, Brent was employed as a deputy with the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office and later as a law enforcement officer with the Sulphur Police Department.
He earned an Associates Degree in Mortuary Science from the Commonwealth Institute of Funeral Service in Houston. He worked for a few years at Robison Funeral Home in Sulphur. Brent was a Jack-of-all trades, but most recently he was employed as a commercial electrician with Saia and Doyle Electric in Baton Rouge.
With his charming personality, quick wit, and joking nature, Brent made friends wherever he went. He had many interests such as music and woodworking, but his greatest joy was being a father to his two sons, Reed and Matthew.
Mr. Allain is survived by his two sons, Zachary Reed and Matthew Paul Allain; his parents, John Jeffrey and Darlyne Zachary Allain; his sisters, Julie Warwick (Chris) and Lisa Banta (Tony); his brother, Jeffrey Paul Allain (Kelly), and numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Rodney and Clara Zachary and his paternal grandparents, Eldon and Marie Allain.

Also their gratitude is extended to Kasie Nix NP, Kari Savoy NP, Deanna Burger, NP, the LCMH Heart Team, ICU Staff, and the staff of the 7th and 8th Towers.
Pallbearers will be Jeremy Henry, Jeffrey Allain, Reed Allain, Drew Allain, Chris Warwick, and Tony Banta. Honorary pallbearers are Matthew Allain; Ben Warwick; Braiden, Dylan, and Ethan Banta.
