In memory of
Michael Irvin "Mike" Dooley
Michael Irvin "Mike" Dooley, 76, of Covington, LA, passed away peacefully at his home on Wednesday, August 7, 2019. He couldn't have asked for a better final chapter, as he had 30 members of his family with him during his last 72 hours. Everyone prayed, laughed, shared stories, played his favorite songs, and while he didn't respond verbally, he shed tears of joy to show his love. Mike is survived by his beloved wife Marie "Mitzie" Arnold Dooley and their children; Shane Dooley (Eileen), Curtis Dooley (Angie), Melissa Lanaux Kennedy (Keith), Marie Lanaux, and Rachel Lanaux. He is also survived by 19 grandchildren, 8 great-grandchildren, 3 great-great-grandchildren, and two sisters Martha and Patricia (Pat). Mike was the first born to the late Irvin Joseph and Margaret "Maggie" Dooley. He was also preceeded in death by three of their children; Kari Dooley Ocmond, Kenny Lanaux, Kerry Lanaux, and two siblings; Sharon and Larry. Mike also loved his dogs (fur-kids) Chloe and Madonna, as well as the late Olivia and Gizmo. Mike was a U.S. Air Force veteran and received two Presidential awards during his service to our country. A native of Louisville, KY., Mike also lived in Kenner, LA., Slidell, LA., Picayune, MS., and finally Covington, LA. Before retiring, Mike was a Safety Director with Bell South for 30 years and then started his own safety consulting business called SafetyNet. Mike will be remembered by his family for his leadership, incredible storytelling, and his strong faith in God. Relatives and friends of the family are invited to attend the Memorial Services at HONAKER FUNERAL HOME, 1751 GAUSE Blvd. WEST (IN FOREST LAWN CEMETERY), Slidell, LA on Thursday, August 15, 2019 at 1:00 P.M.
