Mike will always hold a special place in the hearts of everyone who knew him. He was an avid shrimper and tugboat deckhand until getting hurt. Mike loved the outdoors whether it was fishing or fixing things. He also enjoyed spending time with his family along with staying busy with his grandchildren. Mike had a heart of gold and never met a stranger. He was kindhearted and would give you the shirt off his back. He was a proud Saints fan and always looked forward to watching football on Sundays. Mike was known for his cooking and never let anyone leave hungry. He will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him. 

He was proud member of the United Houma Nation tribe. 

The family would like to thank everyone for their prayers during this time.

Chauvin Funeral Home is honored to care for the family of Michael Dion.
