About Michael

mm1Michael was a surprise to his mom and dad.  The doctors had told his mom Theresa, that she could not have anymore children. Soon after that, she found out she was pregnant with Michael.

Michael Granier was born January 23, 1979. He was the youngest of four siblings.

Michael's family: Father - James Granier, Mother - Theresa Granier, Brothers - Jimmy and Jeff, Sister - Shelly, Wife - Emily, Son - Mason

Michael grew up in New Roads, LA and later moved to Baton Rouge, LA where he lived the remainder of his life. He worked at Hi Nabor supermarket in Baton Rouge. He married Emily in 2004 who gave birth to his beloved son, Mason in 2009.

Michael was an honest, principled man who loved his family and friends. He would do anything for the people he loved and did not burden his loved ones with his own needs.

Michael enjoyed reading, movies, and his favorite football team the Pittsburg Steelers.

The following was excerpted from Mom's latest email: (talking about Jimmy, Jeff and Shelly)

I just thought of something funny about Michael.  When all of you had moved out, he would have a hissy fit when I told him you were all coming over.  If he was at work, he would call and say “Hide the cokes” so they don’t drink all of them.

If he was at home, he would grab almost off of them and hide them under his bed.  Tended to do the same with my crawfish cornbread!
