Michael Wayne Stallings, age 51, of Springfield, MO went home on June 24, 2012 after a long, hard battle with cancer.
Mike was born October 6, 1960. He is survived by his devoted wife, best friend, and soul mate, Debbie; her daughter Stephanie and husband Casey Brower, and granddaughter Anslie. He is also survived by his father, Larry and Sue Stallings; mother, Karyl George and Jim Hernandez; his brother Chris and Bathsheba Cantrell and their daughters, Mackenzie and Mallory; and many loving family members and friends.
Mike would tell you he's been everywhere. From hauling produce with his dad and grandpa to drilling core samples for Palmerton and Parrish to piggybacking semis across the country, Mike has traveled to every state and remembered every road he ever traveled. Before GPS, people knew they could call Mike for directions no matter where they were. Mike never knew a stranger. He made friends everywhere he went and was welcome to stay with any of them anytime he passed through. Mike will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
Visitation will be held from 6-8 pm on Wednesday, June 27 at Klingner-Cope at Midtown Chapel 1635 N. Benton Ave., Springfield, Mo. with a Funeral Service 2pm Thursday, June 28. Interment to follow at Eastlawn Cemetery.
Memorial donations may be made to the
in Mike's name.
