Born in Beaumont, Texas, on April 20, 1951, he was the son of Evett Daigle and Allison Crowe Daigle. Michael Daigle spent his life surrounding himself with the friends and family he loved dearly. He could often be found anywhere his wife was, and if not with her he would be goofing off with his best friends J.C. and David. He always made time for those closest to him but above all would do anything and everything for his grandchildren, never missing an activity or event they participated in. Early on he served in the Navy, earning Military Honors and later became a member of the V.F.W. Michael was an avid woodworker able to build anything while remaining humble. He enjoyed fishing and spending time outdoors. Michael made sure there was never a dull moment always making jokes and witty comments. He was very wise and always wanted to share his stories and wisdom with everyone he knew. He was deeply loved and loved just as deeply, he will be missed by everyone who knew him.
