Services for Mr. Michael Howard Owens of Brookhaven were at 2:00 pm, Saturday, April 13, 2024, at Harmony Baptist Church with visitation from 11:00 am until the time of service. Burial was at Fair River Baptist Church Cemetery.
Mr. Michael Howard Owens, 69, passed away on April 9, 2024, at the University Medical Center. He was born August 18, 1954, to the late Robert Howard Owens and Helen Boots Owens.

When he graduated from high school, he went to work offshore with his dad for the summer to save money for law school, but the summer ended, and he stayed for over 35 years. He loved his job and worked his way to the top. He was a member of Harmony Baptist Church and was proud of his work in the church. He studied late into Saturday nights to prepare for Sundays. It was important to him that his family knew God. He was an avid Harley-Davidson fan. After retirement and finishing cancer treatment, he enjoyed riding his bikes. Yet, his greatest passion was his family.

Preceding him in death were his parents; his grandparents, Bert & Edith Dickerson, Raymond & Maude Owens; and son-in-law, John Franklin Branton.
