Magnus was a loving father and grandfather. He was a dedicated officer for Terrebonne Parish Sheriffs office for several years. Magnus was a jack of all trades and was able to hold a conversation about anything even if he didn’t know much about the subject. He enjoyed working bingo games and spending time with his grandchildren. Anyone who knew him knew how much he loved eating Popeyes. He will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.
The family would like to thank Grace Nells for her wonderful care over the years.
