Martin Wayne DeBenedetto passed away at home with his devoted family by his side on August 31, 2019. Born on November 25, 1955, 63 years young and a lifelong resident of Baton Rouge. He lost his battle with cancer. Martin’s love of family, the outdoors, hunting and fishing, and the joy of cooking for his family.
