Raoul Mier passed away on January 7th at the age of 92. He was born on July 6, 1927 in Havana, Cuba. Raoul is survived by: Carmelina Rey de Mier, his wife of 72 years; his children, Myra Mier Miramon (Michael Miramon) and Raul Mier (Kyle Hilburn); his grandchildren, Thomas M. Brahney (Melissa) and Bridget Brahney (E. Christian Laudan, Jr.); and his great grandchildren: Kelsie Brahney, Kinley Brahney, Caroline Laudan, and Zachary Snow.
Raoul graduated from Tilton College in New Hampshire then worked for Delta Airlines for 43 years both in Havana and New Orleans. He travelled extensively around the world with his wife and was involved in the arts serving as a stage manager for 40 years for the Myra Mier School of Ballet and Jefferson Ballet Theatre.
Raoul was a stubborn but funny perfectionist and a great story teller. He especially enjoyed a good buffet, watching sports and WWII films, and trips with his wife to the Beau Rivage.
We would like to thank Dr. Andrew Dalovisio for his positive and knowledgeable care these past couple of years. We would also like to thank the nurses and staff at Ochsner Medical Center for their professionalism and kindness. There will be a private funeral at Greenwood Funeral home.
