Michael Paul Orgeron of Luling, passed away peacefully at his home, on May 27, 2023. Michael was born December 7, 1944 in Thibodaux to the late Vicknair and Hilda Cheramie Orgeron.
After graduating from Hahnville High School, he enlisted in the United States Air Force. He returned home from serving his country in 1963. Legend states that not long after, Michael caught a glimpse of a beautiful dark haired girl at Sterns Grocery and made it his mission to make her his bride. After some detective work, he got her phone number from her little brother. Michael bravely gave her a call and talked her into a first date.
The future of “Mike & Bev” began at the Quick Shake Restaurant in Mimosa Park on Hwy 90. They went on to become husband and wife in 1966 and together became the parents of nine children. They raised their family only two blocks from where they met.
Michael’s favorite hobbies were listening to DooWop & Motown, fishing, hunting, watching football, scrap metal collecting & storytelling. He could always make us laugh with tales of being a rebel, breaking the “silly laws” from Wildlife & Fisheries, going to many concerts, and letting the kids play hooky so he could take them fishing.
Michael was diagnosed with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy in 2021 and bravely fought until his body became tired and he was ready to go home to his Beverly. He was predeceased by his parents and five infant children, Christina, Paul, David, Michelle and Heidi.
Those left to miss him deeply include sons Brian (Stacy), Kevin (Evi), Jason (Kristie) and Jeremy (Jonathan Richards). Grandchildren Jessica, Valentine, Stephen (Elizabeth), Hannah (Micah), Sarah, Braeden, Addison, Adriel and Mekaila. Great Grandsons Elwood & Alexander. Siblings Florence (Larry), Larry (Sandra), Alida, Evelyn (Barry) and Milton (Pam) Very special best friends Darryl, Johnny & Roger. And his fluffy best buddy, Dennis who never left his side.
The family is very grateful to Denise, our friend & private duty nurse, Dr Neel Reddy, and Heart Of Hospice of Gretna-Dr Christopher Joplin, Carli, Natasha and Chaplain Taylor.
