Michael was born on Aug. 9, 1968, in Morgan City, the son of Bobby R. Courtney Sr. and Janet Boudreaux Courtney.
Michael was kind and gentle, and always smiling and laughing. He loved to be in the outdoors hunting, fishing, snow skiing and going to the camp. He also loved being with his family and friends especially his nieces, nephews and stepchildren, as children always had a spot in Michael’s heart. Michael had a spirit that was unique and lived life the way he wanted. He was always trying to help people and making people laugh. He has been taken way too soon, but is now in the arms of his Father. Michael will never be forgotten and will be truly missed.
