Zachary "Zac" Manuel

December 31, 1999 — February 14, 2021

VILLE PLATTE – A memorial service will be held at 5:00 PM at Freedom Family Church (216 Chicot Park Road) in Ville Platte, Louisiana on Saturday, March 13, 2021 for Zachary “Zac” Brett Manuel, 21, who passed away on Sunday, February 14, 2021 in Mamou, Louisiana.

Pastor Steven Sawtelle will conduct memorial services.

Zachary “Zac” Brett Manuel was born in Opelousas, Louisiana to Alicia Manuel and Christopher James Landreneau on December 31, 1999, and was a long-time resident of Pine Prairie.  Zac had a beautiful smile that would light up and change the mood of anyone in the room. He was a very industrious, hard-working young man who had an outgoing personality.  After graduating from Pine Prairie High School, he courageously served his country in the Army National Guard since 2018.  Zac was a student at SLCC Community College and worked as an electrician for EP Breaux.   When not working, he enjoyed the outdoors, especially riding four wheelers.  The muddier it was the more Zac loved the ride.  He adored his family and friends and took advantage of every moment that he could spend with them.  Zac will be greatly missed by them and his memory will live on in their hearts forever.

He is survived by his mother, Alicia Manuel Broussard and husband, Mike of Pine Prairie; his father, Christopher James Landreneau of Youngsville; maternal grandparents, Margarete and Gregory Manuel of Pine Prairie; paternal grandmother, Marie Miles and husband, Jimmy of Duson; great grandmother, Wilda Ryan of Ville Platte; and two brothers, Chaz Young and Daniel Elliot.  Also left behind to cherish his memory are his aunts, Amber Manuel, Jennifer Manuel, Julie Fontenot, Jessica Doll, and Billie Manuel; uncles, Gregory Manuel, Lucas Smith, and Jonathan Smith; and numerous other relatives and close friends.

Zac was preceded in death by his paternal grandfather, Christopher James Landreneau, Sr.; grandfather, Floyd Soileau; maternal great grandparents, Jerris and Howard Manuel; and great paternal grandparents Adam and Edith Landreneau.

The family requests that visitation will be observed at Freedom Family Church on Saturday, March 13, 2021 from 4:00 PM until 8:00 PM.
