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.
