Michael James Hebert, Sr.
Michael James Hebert, Sr., 90, of Beaumont, left this life on Thursday, April 27, 2023, at home, to go live with his Lord and Master in Heaven. Mike was born on August 23, 1932, in Beaumont, to Mabel and Murray Hebert, of Beaumont.
His belief in Jesus Christ as His Lord and Savior gave him the assurance that he would live eternity at the feet of Jesus. That is blessed assurance.
Michael graduated from Beaumont High School and received a Bachelor of Science degree from Lamar University, which at that time was called Lamar State College. He retired from the Beaumont Dupont Plant after 38 years.
His two sons were the joy of his life. As they were growing up, the three of them enjoyed fishing in the Gulf of Mexico, camping out and handball at the YMCA. He referred to his daughters-in-law as blessings.
Mike was a member of Westgate Memorial Baptist Church and the Sojourner’s Sunday School Class. He enjoyed the Morning Prayer Breakfast at St. Mark’s Church.
He is survived by his wife of 47 years, Marilyn Terrell Hebert, who he called the love of his life; his two sons, Michael Hebert, Jr. of Kerrville and Scott Hebert of Sugarland, as well as their wives, Sandra Hebert and Janet Pierce Hebert; six grandchildren, Charlie Hebert and his wife, Emileigh of Katy; Katie and her husband, Brian Rike, of Richmond; Bailey Marie Hebert of Dallas; Kasi Hebert; Michael Hebert; and Matthew Hebert, all of Houston; great-grandchildren, Eivin, Merak Hebert, Lennox Hebert; Addison Rike, and Liam Rike; brother, Murray Hebert and his wife, Toni of Kerrville; and niece and nephews, Dr. Tracie and Dr. Michael George and their children, Isabelle and Abigail; and Jason Socier.
Mike is preceded in death by his parents, Mabel and Murray Hebert of Beaumont; sister, Oldire Hebert Socier; and brother-in-law, Eddie Socier.

Mike was a wonderful friend who I admired.
Marilyn, my deepest condolences to you on the loss of Mike. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Terry and I send our deepest sympathies. Mike was always such a nice man. Prayers of peace for the family.
Marilyn, my prayers are with you at this time. I remember Mike faithfully walking at the Wellness Center as many of us tried hard to keep moving! The two of you made a wonderful couple, an inspiration to many.
MAKE AND MARILYM AN OUTSTANDING COUPLE. GRATEFUL FOR THE MANY GREAT TIMES TOGETHER.
Mike was generous with his time and talent. He helped many at DuPont with his abilities. Mike was a friend and he was loved. He had the attributes of a good Christian, and his reward in Heaven is assured.
Marilyn, our prayers for Mike, and for you, are for his peace and for your comfort. Love you!
Mrs Hebert, I and so sorry for your loss.
My condolences to mrs. Hebert and her family. It was
43 years ago that you introduced me to your husband at a function held at odom middle school. May your husband rest in peace.
Dearest Marilyn and family,
I am greatly saddened to see the notice of your loss of Mike…but what wonderful 47 years you had together….dwell on the memories….since Patsy’s graduation to heaven, I contend that regardless of age or condition of health, we are never ready to say BYE to those we love….God continues to walk with us, hand in hand, each day…know that all of the Williams family sends love and prayers for this difficult new walk in your lives…..
Yours for a better
world thru Christ,
R. O. Williams, Jr.
Mike was a sweet and kind Christian man that walked closely with His Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. Now, Mike is in the presence and arms of His Heavenly Father.
A man of God…
A role model…
Rest in Peace, my friend
What a wonderful man. It was a privilege to know him and his dear wife.
Condolences to all of his family and loved ones but rest assured he is with the Lord.
I cannot remember when I did not know Mike. In fact, my mom, Nell McCormick, and aunt, Janet Richardson, introduced Mike and Marilyn so there have been many interactions with them over the years. He was a fine Christian man successful in life.
