Pop was a loving husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. He was a devout Christian who lived as a good and faithful servant to our Lord. His life set an example for us all to follow. He was the owner of Houma Plumbing for 20 plus years and continued his trade for the rest of his life. He enjoyed doing plumbing, restoring old cars, watching old westerns, and spending time with family. He loved to “pick” and have fun; he remained a kid at heart. Pop will be dearly missed by all whose hearts he touched.
Chauvin Funeral Home and Crematory, INC. is honored to serve the McGee family.
