Kirk Trahan, the longtime manager of the Moss Street Pizza Village, has died.

"Our GM, our friend, our boss, our father figure, brother, our companion, our go-to, our Kirk-ules, and many many other wonderful things to many of us...…. our sweet Kirk has passed on and is now at peace. Thank you all for your love and support, he was a model team leader for almost 36 years. He was a family man with a gentle heart and a warm smile... Kirk thank you for making us your family... we miss you dearly and our hearts hurt," a post on the restaurant's Facebook page states.

Just last week, we told you about a parade his co-workers and friends held for him, as a show of support.

His employees and friends organized a drive-by parade. When they passed by his house, they honked and cheered to let Kirk know how much they miss him.

Now, his employees and friends are asking customers and friends to post photos and memories of him on their Facebook page.

Here's the post:

Pizza Village employees have created a GoFundMe account for Trahan. You can find that here.
