Past UMT Member Michael Keith Nazar answers final alarm

Michael Keith Nazar, age 48, husband, father, brother and uncle, passed away on Friday, March 18, 2016. We are sad to report that past UMT member Michael Keith Nazar passed away on Friday, March 18, 2016. Michael was a native of New Orleans and when Katrina hit, he left us to go back home where he was needed more. There are lots of us who remember Mike for his sense of humor & his dynamic personality. One thing is for sure…there are less laughs in the world today with him gone. God Speed brother, we’ll take it from here.

Michael was loved by his wife and best friend, Gretchen Landry Nazar. He was proud of his children Peyton, Britain and Jackson. He kept his siblings Michele, William Jr. and Paul David Nazar always laughing and wondering what was next. Michael was a native of New Orleans and had spread his joy whereever he landed: St. Bernard, Detroit, Lewiston, N.Y., and Mandeville. He was proud to be a Veteran of the United States Navy and retired as a Captain with the New Orleans Police Department. Michael was always genuinely concerned about those around him. He was literally the guy who would give you the shirt off his back or the last dollar in his pocket. He has joined his mom and dad in watching over us. Though we are heartbroken and left behind, we know he’s flying high and still loving us. Burial will be private. A Celebration of Michael’s life will be set for a later date. Arrangement by Bagnell & Son Funeral Home of Covington, LA. To view and sign the family guest book, please visit
