Mike is predeceased by his mother Bennie Mae Tabor, his father LG Autrey, and his sister Jodi Katherine Wilson. All so loved but not forgotten. It helps us smile a little to know that they’re all reunited.
Mike is survived by his loving wife Susan Armstrong of 6 years. They were married in Dallas County on the 26th day of March in 2016.
Mike is lovingly remembered by his daughter Jo Michelle and husband Randall Klepfer of Big Sandy, TX; son Loren and Sarah Autrey of Quinlan, TX; stepson Dustin and wife Annie Early of Quinlan, TX; stepdaughter April and husband Zach Witherspoon of Quinlan, TX; stepdaughter Autumn Armstrong of Garland, TX; sister-in-law Sheryl McCullough of Dallas, TX; sister-in-law Linda Harrell and husband Mike McGregor of Garland, TX, sister-in-law Starr and Chuck Shockley of Weatherford, TX; and many Grandchildren. He also had two Great-Children.
Mike was born in Kermit, TX in 1948. He attended school in Grand Prairie, TX. He worked as a Garage door Technician for many years. He was “The Best of The Best” He took so much pride in his work. He also trained many under him. He did this for many years. This was a trade that he learned from his father.
Mike enjoyed going to the casino; he was definitely a gambler. He enjoyed going to the beach. But most of all he enjoyed spending time with his wife and all his babies. I myself have so many memories that I will hold close, as I know each and every one of us have our own.
Mike's wishes were pretty simple; he just wanted a small service with a few people and all of his loved ones.
Mike’s memorial will be held on the 2nd day of January, 2023 at 2 p.m. at Lakeside Memorial Park in Quinlan.
