Matthews' family was understandably shocked by the news of their son's death, but remembered him a fitting way.
KPRC reports Matthews will be buried Tuesday.
At the Charbonnet Labat Glapion Funeral Home in Treme, his family showed the world the things Matthews love the most.
Matthews' body was sat lounged back in a padded swivel chair, and he was dressed in his Boston Celtics vest.
Food placed on the table next to him included a fizzy cola drink, Doritos and some chocolate cereal, which had been placed on the floor.
Although it's not stated explicitly, he's likely "playing" a version of National Basketball Association 2K based on the above video which included a shot of the television screen.
