Edward Michael Laxton

August 11, 1951 ~ December 15, 2019 (age 68)


Mr. Edward “Mike” Michael Laxton passed away on Sunday December 15, 2019 at the age of 68.Mike was born to parents David Lamont Laxton Jr and Mary Elizabeth Michael Laxton in Mobile, AL on August 11, 1951. Though born in Alabama, Mike attended and graduated from Sam Barthe School for Boys in Metairie and was a multi-sport athlete while attending there.  A talker by nature, Mike worked in sales for many years and could hold a conversation with just about anybody. He had a charm that could only be dulled by addiction, a sickness and disease which ultimately led to his passing. He is preceded in death by his wife Jo Ann Edwards Laxton. He is survived by his son, Michael (Lauren); his brother David (Betty); and a grandson and granddaughter. Mike will be cremated and his ashes will be scattered by family. The family is grateful for the condolences but declines flowers and donations.
