Christian Isaiah LaCour passed away at the age of 20 on May 6, 2023, while trying to help others during an attack on the Allen Outlet Mall in Allen, Texas. He was born at home on January 14, 2003, in Farmersville, Texas. Christian was a graduate of Farmersville High School and enjoyed working as a security officer for Allied Security.
Christian was a deep-thinking gentle giant who always had a song in his heart, which he was never afraid to belt out anytime the occasion allowed (and even when it didn’t). He left behind his mom and dad, Chris and Tracye, sisters, Brianna Smith, Rian LaCour and Berenice Arcos, brother, Matthew LaCour, brother-in-law, Zachary Smith, future brother-in-law Dakota Pelton, his loving girlfriend Patricia Ledbetter, and his beautiful feline fur babies, Argos and Ena. He has also left behind his grandparents, Clyde and Debra LaCour, Sandra Montgomery and Leroy Norris, great-grandmother Dorothy Rich, Aunt Kimmie Lovejoy, uncles Kevin LaCour and Jason Frier and so many great-aunts, great-uncles, and cousins who are too numerous to list.
Christian has been described as one who could light up a room with his presence. He was all about comfort and did not care what others thought of him. It was not uncommon to see him shirtless or in only his robe and cat slippers lounging in his favorite oversized beanbag chair daydreaming, reading, or playing video games. His family never knew when he would bust out in song, dance his weird dances, or whip out a joke or pun that would leave everyone in tears of laughter. He was a deep thinker who wrote stories and created characters based on his daydreams and valued family above all else. Christian was an amazing snuggle buddy with hugs that made everything better. He was also a great listener and knew just what to say to provide peace and comfort. He loved and accepted people for who they are without judgment. He was a safe place for all.
A Celebration of Life will be held for Christian at Cottonwood Creek Church, 1015 Sam Rayburn Tollway, Allen, Texas 75013 on Monday, May 15, 2023, at 11 a.m. The family asks those who attend to dress in jeans and a t-shirt from their favorite musical or band, movie or cartoon, book, video game, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Comic Book or Anime as these are the things that brought their son joy. Please do not wear all black as this is a celebration of his life.
