A letter from ""Unk"" to family and friends: Let me start by saying- I've had a beautiful life! Many thanks to my wonderful wife Cynthia-together for 57 years- God has given us much! Thank you to Christi, our daughter, her husband Uwe and the wonderful grandchildren- C.J., Bronte, Connor, Mason and Peyton-it has been a joy to watch all of you grow and enjoy your lives. God chose to take two of our children early in their lives-Ricky and Larry and they have been in heaven guiding us to the light. Thank you Ashley, for the wonderful mother, wife and grandchild that you have been. Thank you to my daughter Lisa- I am glad that you, Kevin, Lindsey, and Kyle came into my life when you did. Thank you to all of my friends for allowing me to be your friend. I have had wonderful years, enjoyed family, friends, and golf. I have to go now- I've traveled the long and narrow road to heaven. I'll be waiting for all of you with open arms. Ellis Anthony Michael, a native and resident of Baton Rouge, passed away on May 30, 2018 at the age of 84. He was a veteran of the United States Army.
