Born in Port Arthur, Texas, on December 25, 1997, he was the son of Michael Leger and Seena Ana Marie (Miller) Rodriguez. Drake graduated from Little Cypress Mauriceville High School. He enjoyed playing video games and singing 70s and 80s songs in the car with his mama. Drake was a member of Little Cypress Baptist Church where he practiced his large faith in Jesus. Drake met every trial with his affirmation “God’s got this”, which helped him through many of life’s storms. Whenever you saw Drake, he had a huge smile on his face and an infectious laugh. He loved his family and church family dearly. Drake loved the color orange and was passionate about the fact that he lived in Orange. He will be deeply missed by all those who came to know and love him.
He is survived by his mother, Seena Rodriguez and husband Rod of Orange; father, Michael Leger of Nederland; sister, Marcella Leger; and stepbrother, Nicholas Matar.
