August 17, 1951 - April 1, 2020
Michael Keir Digby, age 68, passed away on Wednesday, April 1, 2020. He was born on August 17, 1951 in New Orleans, LA, and he was a resident of Ponchatoula, LA. Mike loved camping, gardening, cooking, hosting family gatherings, and watching college baseball. He cherished his family and friends, and was well known for his giving, jovial, and generous nature. Mike never met a stranger and was a true family-man, creating a lifetime of memories on camping trips, lunches with his old high school buddies, and family vacations. He will be particularly missed by his local cookout partners who knew he would always be there to stir counter clockwise and do the dishes. Mike retired from Louisiana Power & Light and Entergy after 38 years of faithful service, working as a control room operator, in the safety and training departments, and as a lineman. He was happily retired for 10 years and affectionately known for his, “Everyday is Saturday” response when asked how he was doing. Mike is survived by his loving wife of 47 years, Gail Lowrance Digby; daughter, Michelle Collins; son-in-law, David Bryant; son Matt Digby; daughter-in-law, Holli Digby; son-in-law Greg Collins; brother, Timothy Digby; grandchildren, Abigail and Maci Collins, Wyatt, Camille, and Cooper Digby. He is preceded in death by his parents, Martin and Noel Digby; sister, Maureen Digby; and grandparents, George and Margaret Schwab. Relatives and friends of the family are invited to the Celebration of Life at Brandon G. Thompson Funeral Home, 1190 US 51 N, Ponchatoula, LA, on Saturday, May 30, 2020 with visiting from 10AM until 11:30AM. The memorial service will be held in the chapel at 11:30AM. After the memorial service, family and friends are invited to share food and fellowship from 12PM until 2PM at the funeral home. Due to current mandates by Gov.
