SHREVEPORT-BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) -
Saturday, a local restaurant legend was laid to rest. Family, friends, and community leaders say goodbye to the owner of the well-known Brother's Seafood restaurant, Orlando Chapman. Services were held at Shreveport's Convention Center.
"He was a very kind person, as well as being a business owner, he was also a teacher, he taught everyday life values from his workers to his kids that was in stilled in him by his grandparents and his parent" Darryl Lane says.
More than a thousand people attended the funeral; friends say that is a testament to Orlando's Chapman's influence and love. "That was his purpose to love everyone and bring everyone together because its amazing how many people are here today" Derrie Hunter says .
"I think I will miss the most, just his ability to just motivate even with myself" Caddo Commissioner Gerald Bowman, cousin to Orlando, says. He says Orlando's death is a loss to his family, but also for the entire community. "I'm at a loss, this is hard for me, last time I was here I was burying my mother so it's kind of surreal and sentimental to me. He's a positive role model, not only for all males but for African American males because he was a business owner, entrepreneur; he was active in the community" Bowman says.
Orlando died of cardiac arrest, when he fell into Cross Lake Tuesday. "I'm feeling kind of relieved now, he's in a better place with God and knowing that he really did not suffer on the accident" Lane says.
"He's going to be missed, he will always be with us" Hunter says. His family, friends, and employees plan on carrying on his legacy.
