A rosary was recited on Sunday evening.
Fr. Donald Pousson officiated at the Funeral Mass. Readers and gift bearers were his grandchildren, Chynna, Chloe, Cain and Cheridan.
Mike was employed by Moran Towing Corporation, as a Chief Engineer for 24 years. He was a meticulous and orderly man, a master craftsman, as well as a passionate collector of cars, which he loved refurbishing – there wasn’t anything that he couldn’t do.
As it has long been said about “Man’s Best Friend,” Mike loved his dog, “The Dude” – he was his sidekick and went everywhere with him. He was an avid outdoorsman who loved hunting and fishing and enjoyed watching football.
Survivors include his daughter, Carolyn Stowe and her husband Craig of Metairie; and four grandchildren, Chynna, Chloe, Cain and Cheridan Stowe.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Clophia and Zula Guidry Hebert.
Pallbearers were Bryan Dautreuil, Jessie Melancon, Brad Guidry, Shane Stelly, Don Guidry and Mark Olivier.
Honorary pallbearers were Scott Stelly, Craig Stowe, Pat Angelle and Emery Dautreuil.
Pellerin Funeral Home of Cecilia was in charge of arrangements.
