Mr. Barnidge died Sunday, December 1, 2013, after a brave fight with cancer. Mike was born on August 17, 1951 in Shreveport, Louisiana. He moved with his family to Monroe several years later and went on to graduate from Ouachita Parish High School in 1969. He graduated from Louisiana Tech University in 1974, and it was during his years there that he met the love of his life, Mary. They married in 1973 and went on to have two children, two children by marriage and four grandchildren, each of whom Mike could not have been more proud. Indeed, to know Mike was to know that the greatest accomplishment in life was his family. He recently celebrated his 40th anniversary with Mary and was looking forward to many more.
Mr. Barnidge was preceded in death by his parents, Leroy and Rosemary Barnidge.
Survivors include his wife of 40 years, Mary Barnidge; children, Elizabeth Kohlhausen and husband Dash, and Michael Barnidge, Jr. MD and wife Lori; four grandchildren, Anna, Emily and Miles Barnidge, and Elle Kohlhausen; brothers and sisters, Leroy Barnidge, Jr. and wife Sanny, Cathy Johnston and husband Paul, and Colleen Kelly and husband Berton; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Pallbearers will be Michael Barnidge, Jr., MD, Leroy Barnidge, Jr., David Gordy, Kerry Gordy, Berton Kelly, Jacob Kelly, Dash Kohlhausen, and Ken Vincent.
Visitation will be Tuesday from 5:00 PM until 7:00 PM at Mulhearn Funeral Home, Sterlington Road, Monroe.
The family would like to extend their sincerest thanks to all of the family members and friends who offered their support, prayers and love to Mike during his illness.
