Artie was a special needs child who, although he couldn't talk, had his own way of communicating with family and friends. Not expected to live past his teens, Artie surpassed the doctor's expectations, mostly due to the loving care he received from his dedicated parents. He brought so much joy to his family's lives through his smile, laughter, funny ways, and loving heart. Some of his favorite pastimes were listening to music, going for walks with his caregivers, and joy rides in the car. Artie absolutely loved Coca-Cola and chocolate. But most of all, Artie loved spending time with his family and his dear caregivers who loved him as their own.

Those Artie leaves to cherish his memory include his sister, Debbie Dupre Jeffreys and her husband William of Youngsville; two nieces, Michelle Curry of Beaumont, TX and Lori Goodrich and her husband Kevin of Virginia Beach, VA; one nephew, Shane Curry and his wife Jamie of Lafayette; eight grandnieces and grandnephews, Logan Domingue and his wife Alyse, Katelyn Domingue, Hannah Domingue, Jack Domingue, Liam Curry, Luke Curry, Ellis Curry, and Olivia Goodrich; two great grandnieces, Marlee Boutte and Arielle Domingue; cousin and caregiver, Harriet Logan, who was like a sister to him; his godmother, Sadie Boudreaux; his loving caregivers, Gin Jack, Dora Jack, Kizzie Bell, and Cherazar Johnson; as well as a host of family members and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Dudley Joseph Dupre and Marjorie "Margie" Boudreaux Dupre; his brother, Dwayne Anthony Dupre; as well as by numerous aunts, uncles, and family members.
