Mike was born November 22, 1957 in Jackson, Mississippi. He was a life long resident of Clinton, Mississippi. He attended Clinton High School and Hinds Community College. He owned the Clinton Shoppette convenience store from 1981 - 2000. He then served as a runner for Upshaw Williams and Copeland, Cook , Taylor & Bush law firms. Mike enjoyed his work and loved giving his co-workers a hard time! Mike loved animals. He liked feeding all the squirrels and birds in the back yard. He liked watching college football on the patio with his dogs while smoking a cigar. He was a big Mississippi State fan, but he also cheered for Ole Miss! He loved music. He knew the words to almost every song written. His favorite singer/composer was Elton John and his favorite song was “Daniel”. He also loved his 1972 Oldsmobile 442. He liked running it through the quarter with his friend Mark Morrison (Deceased) on Kickapoo Road. He also loved out running his wife in her Camaros. Whenever you would see Mike he would always say “Hey, How ya doing” and when you ask him how he was he would say “Beautiful, but you already knew that, “Perfect” or “Just Right” even though he was in pain. He would never let you know he was hurting.

The family would like to express their deepest thanks to Dr. Brandon P. Garriga and Dr. Charles E. Evans, III and all the nurses at the St. Dominics ICU for taking good care of him. They were all very kind and compassionate. They would also like to thank Dr. Michael Morgan, his nurse, Lindsey Mitchell, Dr. John Studdard, and nurse Practitioner Bonney Simmons for taking good care of him over the years. They would also like to thank Al Tate for being a good friend to him and putting up with him all these years and being there when he needed him.

I remember Mike from Seller’s Village. Always upbeat and happy. He was very kind to me, as a young kid riding my bike there to get a bottled Coke and candy. He will be missed. 😣

Susan, I am so sorry for your loss. Mike was a really great guy and I enjoyed seeing his smiling face. I've missed the two of you since you left the firm and I was deeply saddened when I heard that Mike had passed. He was a breath of fresh air and always had a smile on his face. I never once saw him anger or sad. I know you will miss him very much.

You could not be in a bad mood around Mike! How I remember countless time asking “Hey Mike! How are you?” and his grin when he said “I’m perfect!” I’m so glad I got to work with him! My prayer is that you will wrap yourself in the comfort of God’s love. You will see Mike again one day!

Mike was the friendliest person you would ever meet! Growing up in the neighborhood by Sellers Village was one of my favorite childhood memories. I would ride my bike over with my friends and play video games. He always had a smile and was greeted as soon as you walked in the door. I always loved his Olds 442 as that was his pride and joy. RIP Mike! You will be missed by many. The world needs more Mikes!

As a teenager and young adult, It was always great to walk in the store to spend your quarters and get one of his one liners. RIP from one of the knuckleheads from the neighborhood.
