Edward "Eddie" Rosair Michel passed away on Friday, December 1, 2017 at the age of 86. Beloved husband of Margaret Hearty Michel and son of the late Gasper and Ethel Michel. He was father of John Michel (Siobhan), Rob Michel (Deborah), and Patricia Chaplain (Danny). Brother of the late Alvin Michel and the late June Michel Tabary.

A native of New Orleans, Eddie worked in the sheet metal industry and spent his spare time fishing as well as spending time with family. He was very much a family man and enjoyed large family gatherings with lots of laughter and Dixie beer. Eddie retired at the age of 62 and focused on spending quality time with his grandchildren and family, who will forever miss him.

During his final days, the Michel family was especially thankful for the gentle care that Eddie received at Ochsner Hospital in Jefferson, Louisiana. Eddie passed away comfortably with dignity and peace.
