Obituary for Mike Wayne "Mike" Spurgeon

Mike W. Spurgeon, rode off into his final sunset on Sunday, March 24, when an oncoming vehicle veered into his police car, also carrying his eldest son, near Bardwell, Texas.

Mike sauntered into our world on Oct. 1, 1951, in Ardmore, Ok. After galloping around with his parents and three siblings, they all settled in Irving, Tx., in 1963. Irving was home to him, his first wife, and their three children for many years but he was blessed enough to find love again after his first went to Heaven. Mike and his wife, Shannon, have been making their mark in Bardwell since 2006 where he began his career as a law enforcement officer in Princeton, Tx., in 2000. He became Chief of Police for the Bardwell Police Department in 2005, where he was the epitome of gentle leadership, gracious servantship, and generous protector. His unparalleled legacy can be heard, seen, and most profoundly, felt amongst the Bardwell community and all of his remaining loved ones.

While Mike is selflessly serving in the Kingdom, the following both celebrate and comfort each other: son Justin Spurgeon and daughter-in-law Kyra, of Hurst; daughter Holly Morrow and son-in-law K.C., and grandchildren Chance and Kayce Mae, of Irving; beloved wife Shannon Spurgeon, of Bardwell; daughter Kayla Maynard and son-in-law Matthew, and grandchildren Kylie and Mason, of Bardwell; daughter Kelsey Willis and son-in-law Benjamin, and grandchildren Zackary, Vincent, Valla, Sydney, and one on the way; daughter Amber Young and boyfriend Dylan Martinez, and grandchild Alexander Martinez; sister Carolyn Cox and brother-in-law Gaylon, of Euless; brother George Spurgeon and sister-in-law Phyllis, of Irving; sister Deanna Taylor and sister-in-law, Judy Hughes, of Melissa; and more family and friends than anyone could envision.

Mike strolled hand-in-hand through the Lord's Gates with his eldest son, Michael W. Spurgeon, Jr., and was met by his initial great love, Linda Spurgeon, and his parents, Botie and Elladine Spurgeon, as they preceded him in death.

Contributions in his honor can be made to Michael W. Spurgeon, Sr. GoFundMe.

For lodging accommodations, La Quinta Inn & Suites, DFW Airport South has kindly blocked a set of rooms with double beds at a discounted rate. When contacting them at 972-252-6546, extension 5, please mention the "Spurgeon Family" for access to this rate and these rooms.
