Mike Church Jr., 42, passed away Monday July 31, 2023.

Mike was born in Wilkes County, grew up in Roaring River and moved to Coleridge in 2010. He was a graduate of Randolph Community College with an Associate Degree in CNC Programming and Machinery. He was preceded in death by his parents: Mike Sr. and Josephine Church; grandson: Ewan Smith.

Michael loved the Lord. He was a free spirit, who never met a stranger.  If anyone ever needed him he would do his best to be there.  He would light up a room with his beautiful smile and had a laugh that was contagious.  He loved spending time with family and friends.  Mike liked to make them laugh.  He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

A Gathering for family and friends will be held at a later date. 

Kennedy Funeral Home is honored to serve the Church Family.
