Mickey O’Connor, age 81, passed away peacefully at his home on May 5, 2022. A native of the West Bank for 60 years then moving to Slidell to reside for the last 20 years. He was born on April 9, 1941 to the late Elaine Wichers O’Connor and Hugh Fred O’Connor, Sr. He went to Holy Name of Mary in Algiers for grammar school and graduated from there as well. Mickey was very proud of his service with the Marine Corps Reserves as a young man. He was a lifelong commercial general contractor starting as a young boy with his father. He was the owner of Clover Contractors, Inc. and Mickey O’Connor General Contractor, Inc. His companies built many schools, churches, shopping malls, government buildings, hospitals and office spaces on the West Bank and surrounding areas. The large office/warehouse Mickey built at 850 Engineers Road in Belle Chasse won Building of the Year Award in 2004. Mickey took much pride in his work and loved what he did. Mickey was a very well respected member of the construction community and he was very active in many associations, clubs and boards on the West Bank. He was a member of the 69ers Club for many years. He thoroughly enjoyed his time and made many memories with this group of friends. Mickey was also a member of the AQHA for many years. He stabled and studded many award winning horses out of L&L Farms in Carriere, Mississippi. He won the World Champion Aged Stallion class with Hint of Conclusive. Many offspring of this bloodline are still champions to this day. In his free time, he loved to cook. He was a fantastic cook who always cooked enough to feed an entire army. Some of his most loved dishes by friends and family were Crawfish Etouffee and gumbo but there wasn’t a thing he cooked that wasn’t delicious. Most of all, Mickey loved entertaining friends and family and was renowned for his large and extravagant gatherings. Over the years Mickey enjoyed golfing, deep sea fishing for Blue Marlin in Walker’s Cay, bait fishing and crabbing locally. He was a practicing Catholic and loved his church and faith at Our Lady of Lourdes in Slidell.
