He is also survived by many nieces and nephews and his wonder dog, Beignet.

Mike graduated from the University of New Orleans. He proudly served five years active duty as a Captain and helicopter pilot in the U.S. Air Force stateside and overseas in Thailand. Then he began a successful career in pharmaceutical and manufacturer’s sales. Some of his great loves were fishing on his boat, cooking delicious meals for his family and friends, tending to his beautiful garden and smoking cigars on his back patio over great conversation and laughter. Mike was a giving person whose final act of generosity was donating his remains to the LSU Medical School for the purpose of education and research.  A service in celebration of Mike’s life and visitation will be held on Friday, September 28. Visitation will begin at 9:00 AM at Jacob Schoen & Son Funeral Home followed by a Catholic service at 11:00 AM.  In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in his memory to the Ochsner Precision Cancer Therapies Program through Condolences may be expressed at
