He worked as a salesman in the oilfield industry and in 1979 opened GEO Marine. Mac, as he was affectionately known was a great husband, father, grandfather, great and great great grandfather and brother. He was a great storyteller and had thousands of stories that he would share with anyone who would ask. He was often the major role player in his stories and it was easy to say he may have had some rough times in his life, but never a bad day. Mac, enjoyed the horse races and his favorite past time was filling out the horse racing forms. His greatest enjoyment was definitely spending time with his family and friends, who will miss him dearly.

LeCorgne; Mildred L. Hebert and Gloria L. Huckaby and two son in laws, Robert "Bob" Davis and Huey Thibodeaux.

      Pallbearers will be Travis Louviere, Matthew LeCompte, Jeremy LeCompte, Christian Umphries, Casey Umphries and Ronald Plessala.
