Michael loved playing his guitar in his shop, at the camp, and especially sitting around the campfire with family and friends.  He enjoyed hunting with his daughter, his best friend, Adam Dupre’, great niece, Ju Ju and other family and friends.  He treasured spending time at his deer camp.  He took pleasure in cooking for his family and friends whether it was something on the grill or boiling crawfish for family and friends, he was always ready to cook something good.  Michael was a hard-working man who moved manufactured homes and portable buildings for over 36 years.  His favorite times were spent at his shop, listening to music on the radio or making his own music, building a fire in his wood heater on cold mornings with his dog, Boudreaux and cat, Chris by his side.  He will be dearly missed by all that knew and loved him.

Those honored to serve as pallbearers include Adam Dupre’, Tony Ivy, David Ivy, Cody Gauntt, Dale Carr, and Kyle Rachal.  Honorary pallbearers will be Marshal Powell, Pine Knot, Sonny Weeks, John Salter, Randy Gauntt, and Johnny Rachal.
