Michael John Laborde passed away at his home in Gonzales on Saturday morning, July 30, 2016. Mike married the love of his life, Victoria & shared his unconditional love for her for 43 years. He was the proud recipient of an electrical engineering degree from LSU. He had an envious career working for Gulf States Utility & Entergy.

He provided problem solving skills, knowledge, wisdom, dignity, guidance, honor, & unconditional love to every person he crossed paths with. He enjoyed music, fishing, hunting, spending time with his wife, children, grandchildren and watching the Tigers & Saints bring home a victory. He left no stone unturned & knew no stranger. He will be cherished by his wife, children, grandchildren, family, friends, & colleagues until we see him again in God's Kingdom.
