Michael Alan LaJaunie was born to Russell and Bobbye (Welch) LaJaunie on February 18, 1953 in Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. He passed away, unexpectedly, on July 6, 2017 at the age of 64 in Plano, Texas. He had lived in Plano, Texas since 1967. He attended and graduated from Plano High School in 1973.

Mike was one of the kindest people that you would ever hope to meet. He had a huge, generous heart and loved his family very much. He took good care of his Mom and Dad and saw to their daily needs. He also had a great sense of humor and loved a good practical joke. When he and his brothers were younger, they went with their mom and her dad (their Grandpa) to visit a local mall. At the mall the boys purchased a “whoopee cushion” and proceeded to take turns, along with Grandpa, sitting on the “whoopee cushion” as people walked by and laughed. Even years later, Mike would laugh until he cried at this memory.

Mike was a born again Christian who was a member of First Baptist Church of Plano. It is because of this that we are comforted with the knowledge that God was right beside him and took him to Heaven on Thursday when he closed his eyes for the final time. We will forever miss him but we know that we will see him again. In addition to his parents, Mike is survived by his sister, Denise Herrington and her husband Rodney of Albuquerque, New Mexico; his brothers: Steve and his wife, Tammy LaJaunie of Allen, Randy and his wife, Treva LaJaunie of Wylie. He also leaves to cherish his memory, ten nieces and nephews: Ryan Herrington, Jordan Herrington, Carson Herrington, and Linsday Cabbage, all of Albuquerque; Colin Herrington of San Diego, Aimee Brooks of Little Elm, Paige Montgomery of Farmersville, Tyler LaJaunie and Hayden LaJaunie of Wylie, and Whitney LaJaunie of College Station, Texas. Mike is also survived by his aunt, Nora Jones of Maude, Texas and his uncle, Jimmy Welch of Mt. Vernon, Texas; several great nieces and nephews and many loving cousins.

Mike was the nicest person I have ever known. Although, having seen Mike only a few times since we graduated from high school, each time he was still the same Mike I knew back then! The world lost a real treasure when we lost Mike. Oh, that there were more people with kind and gentle spirit.

Michael was absolutely one of the kindest class mates for all of us in the graduating class of 1973. Long after we parted and grew up Michael always remembered us by name. It was a joy to speak to him every time I say him. He had a fabulous memory. I was blessed to know him. Prayers for your family and blessing to know you will see him again in heaven.

Although no words will help to ease the loss you bear, know that you and your family are in every thought and prayer. Mike was the most amazing, compassionate, and giving person that I had the pleasure of knowing for 50 years. He always put everyone else first. It did not matter how long he had known you. My heart is with you during this time of sorrow.

Mike has been my friend since we first meet around 1974. His kind hearted optimism and quite manners have always been an inspiration to me. His infectious and generous smiles, in spite of the many obstacles of life, were always able to lift my spirit to a better place. He was truly blessed to have a wonderful loving and caring family that he loved to talk about. It made me feel at home. We will miss Mike.
