Michael W. Spurgeon, Jr., raced through the gates of Heaven on Sunday, March 24, when an oncoming vehicle collided with the car he was riding in with his father near Bardwell, Tx.
Michael Jr. sped onto the track of life in Irving, Tx, on Nov. 12, 1978, and spent his childhood there. Michael Jr. and his wife, Jamie, called Bardwell home beginning in 2014. Michael Jr. ran his hottest laps as a chief starter for PDRA and a firefighter for his Bardwell neighbors. His pit crew consists of wife Jamie Spurgeon, of Bardwell; brother Justin Spurgeon and sister-in-law Kyra, of Hurst; and sister Holly Morrow and brother-in-law K.C., along with their children, Chance and Kayce Mae, of Irving; step-mother Shannon Spurgeon, of Bardwell; step-sisters Kayla Maynard, Kelsey Willis, and Amber Young, and their children Kylie, Mason, Zackary, Vincent, Valla, Sydney, and Alexander of Bardwell; sister-in-law Lindsay Baxter and husband Bradley, and children Ashley and William, of Heartland; relatives Paul and Jennifer Schutt, along with their children, John, Jylnn, and Jewel, of Bardwell. His father, Michael W. Spurgeon, Sr., walked beside him into the Promised Land, where his mother, Linda Spurgeon, and multiple grandparents welcomed him across the finish line, as they preceded him in death. Many other loved ones remain to share Michael Jr.'s passionate legacy.
