OBITUARY

Michael Allen Pfingston

September 24, 1958January 6, 2020

Michael Allen Pfingston, age 61, of Evansville, IN went to be with the Lord on January 6, 2020 after a long history of illness. He was born in Evansville, IN on September 24, 1958 to Donald Pfingston and Carol (Coomes) Pfingston.

He attended Harrison High School and was a member of Calvary Temple Assembly of God. He worked as a truck driver for 30+ years, with the majority of his time driving for Midwestern Pet Food. In the last several months, he also became a published author of the book, “Why Do We Look to Hell When We Belong to Heaven?”

Michael enjoyed taking long rides on his motorcycle with the love of his life, Tina. He found great joy in surprising his family by bringing home unusual pets, always tried to make people laugh, often referred to himself in 3rd person as The White Knight, and was never shy about sharing his faith in Jesus Christ with others.

He was proceeded in death by his father, Donald Pfingston.

Michael is survived by his stepfather and mother, Ron and Carol (Coomes) Hull; his wife of 31 years, Tina (Evans) Pfingston; his son, Brent Parker (Billie Jo); daughter, Brittany Johnson (Doug); and was the proud Papaw of four grandchildren, Sydnie, Anabelle, Caroline, and Graham; his five siblings, Donetta Loos, Connie Borman (Mike), Pam Kneer (Chris), Brian Pfingston (Kellie), and Kristie Osborne; and a very large extended family.

A special thank you to Devita and Dr. Vijay Bhasin, Cleveland Clinic, Encompass, and the Linda E. White Hospice House for taking such great care of Michael during his time of need.

Mike is my nephew and I will miss him very much. He would call me frequently and I loved hearing his voice. I will miss his love, thoughtfulness, laughter and our talks. He was a very kind, generous, funny, and compassionate person. He loved his family n friends with passion and his Jesus. Everyone will miss his dramatic stories. The fact they were true stories made them quite entertaining and, even, unbelievable. Until I see him again...I love you Mike and will Never forget you! Aunt Glenda

Tina and family, My heartfelt condolences to you and your family. May our loving God wrap His arms around you and comfort you in the days and weeks ahead. We can all rejoice knowing Mike is with our Heavenly Father now and riding the streets of gold on his motorcycle. He will be missed in his earthly home, but may you treasure the memories made until God calls us all home. Wish we could be there in person to express our condolences, but are there in spirit and in prayers.

Michael I'll never forget all the great times we've shared. We've had lots of laughs. You were the best big brother a girl could ask for. This world will be a little less exciting without you, but heaven is having a joyous celebration! Until we meet again I will miss you. I love you and will cherish every single memory I have of you!

I'll never forget being down at the Fall Festival and running into Uncle Mike who was almost unrecognizable with his black attire and his white out contact lenses! He will be missed here on this side of Heaven
