The New Orleans native will be buried Tuesday. WDSU-TV reports his body was positioned in a chair and he had a video game controller in his lap.

According to ABC affiliate WGNO, Matthews was killed two weeks ago, and family members chose to have his body prepared in a way they want to remember him. A big fan of the Boston Celtics and Kyrie Irving, he was dressed in an Irving jersey with the Celtics on a TV screen.

Renard was also pictured wearing his favourite player socks in a scene made to look like a typical, family home.

Matthew's mother Temeka says her son was a bit of a homebody, who only recently started to venture out to walk the dog she'd recently gotten him. His favorite snacks, cereal, Barq's Root Beer and Doritos were placed on a side table next to him.

The family released images from the wake. We get used to seeing each other occupy certain spaces so I think there's something strangely lovely about wanting to see Renard Matthews in that chair, controller in hand, one last time.
