Michael Lane Fusilier, aka ‘Cooter, Mayor of the Mountain’

Michael Lane Fusilier, aka

Father and Friend to all. Missed by everyone.

Sitting at the river, playing his harp. Some would say, he’s pretty sharp.

Caught up in a moment of reflection. Some would say, it’s an affliction.

The song with the river, could you hear it? Some will say, it’s his spirit.

Cooter made his final journey home to Louisiana to spend his last days with his family. He is survived by his three children: Cody Fusilier, Amanda Dennis and Dana Frost; and five grandchildren. Joined with his son Joshua.
