April 28, 1969 ~ February 12, 2021
Michael “Mike” Charles Byrns, age 51, of Denham Springs, left this world at his home on February 12, 2021. Mike was born April 28, 1969 in Baton Rouge Louisiana. He was a graduate of high school and worked as a trim carpenter.
Mike lived his life in his own way. Rocking a mullet (business in the front, party in the back) most of his life. He had a laugh that would send kids running and made those around either laugh or look at who made that noise. He loved to laugh and make others laugh. Give him a cell phone, FaceTime and filters and it brought tears of laughter. He loved hard and in his own way, but you knew just how much he loved you. When he called you a friend, you WERE a friend for life. He was a talented trim carpenter even surprising himself, and would say so working for his longtime friend Ryan Averett who had the patience of Job, before that he worked many years as an iron worker at Ash Construction for Rich Ashmore.
Best known for his fashion sense, which consisted of white tank top, jogging pants, white socks and slip on Adidas slippers, on dressy days, head to toe Under Armor or Adidas, loving the boldest tennis shoe. So much so he bought the grandkids the best tennis shoes even his great nephew JohnWalker and Wrenleigh the same shoes, sparing no expense.
Services at Seale Funeral home on Range Ave. In Denham Springs, Louisiana, Wednesday February 17, 2021 visitation 1-3 pm with services at 3. Mike requested his brother n law and friend Scott Alford to officiate his funeral.
Survived by his spouse Tricia Byrns, son James Middleton, daughters Mindy Middleton and Megan Averett and husband Will Averett, beloved mother Shelia Byrns, Grandchildren Destiny, Ryleigh, Lilliann, Brody, and Brayden. Brother Kevin Byrns and fiancée Cori, Sisters Kellie Alford and husband Scott, Jami Morgan and Jodi Tullos daughters of Gordy & Barbara Montagnino. He had a special relationship with his nieces and nephews, Peyton, Grace, Haven, Stephen and Skylar. He had a great family of uncles, aunts, and cousins that loved him. Not to mention the numerous friends who are too many to list.
Preceded in death by his father John Byrns, Paternal grandparents CW and Marion Byrns, Maternal grandparents Charles and Dorothy “Dot” Pearce, and his best friend from childhood Scott Dodd.
He loved to work with wood, whether refinishing furniture or creating keepsakes. He also loved to rebuild cars. He was truly a Jack of all trades. He would provide a safe haven for anybody.
In lieu of flowers he would have wanted a donation to be given to Louisiana Teen Challenge a ministry that planted a seed that changed his life 30 years ago. You can go to http://LAATC.com.

While I never met Mike, I do know his mom. Miss Shelia, I share you grief, and I share your faith. What a privilege Mike and all your children had, in being chosen to have you for their mom. My heart and warm greetings go out to the entire family and friends. It is not possible for me to be there physically. Please know that I share your grief and loss, and I am there in spirit. Hugs to all. – Lahry
