Michael Timothy Babington age 57 of Virginia Beach, Virginia passed away Sunday November 21st 2021 at home surrounded by his wife and girls. Born in Youngstown/Warren Ohio to the late Ellis Gene Babington and Janet Marie Humphries, Mike graduated from McKinley High School in Niles, Ohio as well as a degree in small engine repair from Gordon D. James Career Center. Months later Mike joined the U.S. Army and proudly served his country for 11 years. He was medically discharged in 1994 after receiving several service medals including two purple hearts.

Mike was well known by many as the biggest Ohio State Fan and an all-around caring, hardworking, funny guy. Mike was married to his lovely bride Michelle Babington (Dudley) for 15 years (together for 17) and had 5 girls combined. There was never a person that Mike didn't talk to or help. With that being said for almost the last 3 years Mike found his calling working for Operation Blessing as a fleet maintenance manager. He always said he did God’s work with his hands and loved every minute of it.

Mike was survived by his wife Michelle and daughters Brittany, Ashely, Mary and Savannaha as well as a special little girl named Melody Wilks. He was also preceded by his son Brandon. Mike is survived by his step-mom M. Joyce Babington (Hochstettler) and siblings Eric, Jeffrey, Sheri, Kimberly, and Margaret. He is preceded by his brother Ellis III. Mike also has four wonderful grandchildren, Dominic, Gunner, Sophia, and Luna.
