Michael (Mike) Firris Kline

116

Michael (Mike) Firris Kline went home to be with his Lord and Savior on June 26, 2020 after a long and brave battle with Leukemia. Mike was born on November 13, 1951 to Firris B. Kline and Ruby Hancock Kline of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

Mike was the owner of the oldest independent Body Shop and Wrecker Service of Yukon, Oklahoma for 42 years. He served his community through Kiwanis and Rotary Club for many years. But his favorite service was to his church body of Trinity Baptist Church. He was an usher, greeter and Deacon. Mike loved people and greeted them each Sunday with a big smile, handshake, and hug. His favorite time was serving alongside Patsy, Stan, and Rex. They served many years together before his illness. His biggest regret was in not being with our church family in the last few months. But even though he could not physically be in the building, his heart was there and he was faithful to be online watching the service every week. Mike also missed not being with his Thursday men’s group that had met together for over 30 years. He loved our small group, the men’s ministry and judging the cars at the Faith Clinic car show yearly.

Mike is survived by loving wife, Donna of 47 1/2 years; son, Nicholas Kline and wife Jennifer of Yukon; daughter, Amy McBeth and husband Paul of Yukon; grandson, Trenton Campbell; granddaughter, Chloe Campbell; granddaughter, Madilynn Kline; grandson, Jackson Kline, and granddaughter, Emma McBeth all of Yukon; sisters, Rhonda Beck and husband Norm of Tennessee, Kathleen Chase and husband Mark of Oklahoma City, and Millie Marques of Yukon. Mike is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews.

Mike will be greatly missed by those who loved him. He is now whole and healthy with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Celebration of Life services will be held at 2:00 p.m., Thursday, July 2, 2020 at Trinity Baptist Church, 620 N. Cemetery Rd., Yukon, OK 73099.
