  Lafayette was born on January 19, 1956 to Verna Mae Thomas and Walter Doss in Marion Arkansas.

Lafayette attended John Marshall High School in Chicago. Anyone who knew Lafayette, knew that he was kind to everyone and absolutely loved to sing. He would serenade anyone and everybody at any moment. He was a great cook and had a loud infectious laugh that you could never forget. Lafayette's family and friends will miss him more than words can say.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Thursday, November 4, 2021 at 1pm at Coleman & Hicks Funeral Home at 101 Karwick Road Michigan City Indiana, 46360. His loss was completely unexpected and the family is shocked and deeply saddened.
