OPELOUSAS - The family of Michael Guidry Hebert sadly announces his death on October 29, 2012, at his home in Opelousas, Louisiana, following a brief illness.
Mike, known to his many friends as "T-Mike" and to all of his many nieces and nephews as "Nonc", was born on February 9, 1950 in Opelousas and is survived by his four children, Spring Hebert Goutro (Nathan), of Opelousas, Jacob Hebert (Haruna Miyazaki Hebert), Amelie Hebert, and Graham Hebert, all of Denver, Colorado; his father, William Elas Hebert, of Opelousas; his siblings, Tina Hebert Dean (Dougie), Cathy Hebert Jackson (Brad), and Billie Hebert Aswell, all of Opelousas, Chris Hebert (Josie), of New Iberia, Marie Hebert Wise (Scotty), of Minden, Annette Hebert Artall (Jeffrey) of Crowley, and Matt Hebert (Toni), of Carencro; three grandchildren, Claudia Goutro, Lucia Goutro, and Ace Goutro; and countless nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, and uncles far too numerous to list.
Mike was preceded in death by his mother, Patricia Mary Hebert; and by his nephew, Christopher Culbertson.
He graduated from A.I.C. in 1968 and played football and baseball for the Wildcats. He more than made up for his lack of size in sports by the size of his heart and those who played with "T-Mike" remember his passion for football and baseball.
Mike graduated from U.S.L. in 1974 in Education and coached and taught at A.I.C. at the St. Landry Parish public schools until he retired in 2008. Mike also obtained a law degree from Southern University Law Center in 1988 and practiced law for four years in St. Landry Parish before returning to his passion of teaching and coaching.
T-Mike had a special knack for relating to people of all walks of life, and everyone he came into contact with ended up calling him a friend.
Mike attended Queen of Angels Catholic Church in Opelousas, Louisiana.
He loved fishing and spending time with his children and grandchildren.
