Published 3:28 pm Tuesday, July 2, 2024

Michael Lee Hudspeth, born June 11, 1960, in New Orleans was called home on June 26, 2024 in Picayune, Miss. He was a car enthusiast distinguished by his handy nature, sense of humor, and the boundless love he carried for his family and friends. His ability to fix anything with his hands was legendary within his family and community.

Michael was the loving father to four daughters Amanda (JJ), Elizabeth (Tony), Michelle (Justin), Tiffany (Jeff) but the title of “Pawpaw Rooster” to his 11 grandchildren Tristin, Peyton, Donovan, Christian, Kaylee, Kayden, Ayden, Taylor, Tessa, Casen, and Kimber was his most cherished title.

Michael is survived by his daughters, grandchildren, Shirley (mother), Bill (Margie), Dorothy (Nathan), Alonzo (Ceilin), nieces, nephews, and dear friends who he considered family.
