RAW: Marshall Gates, son to longtime WAFB anchor Paul Gates, delivers his father's eulogy

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The funeral at Our Lady of Mercy was rich with admiration for WAFB legend Paul Gates.

His son Marshall and wife Brittany attended, and when time came for the eulogy, the tall slender son stepped to the pulpit of the church.

Marshall Paul's name literally is a combination of his father's and paternal grandfather's first names.

Marshall's vocation is a teacher in Lutcher, but when he opens his mouth, you realize he has all the gifts, all the humor of his father.

His eulogy was a touching tribute to a man loved by many.
