Michael James Statham, beloved son, brother and uncle, died suddenly on October 12. He was 41. Michael was born on August 3, 1969, in Salinas, California, to Dave and Lori Statham. The family moved to Texas when he was an infant, and San Antonio became his true hometown. Mike attended James Madison High School, where he was a member of the debating team, and graduated in 1987. After high school he traveled widely in his job with a moving company, and later was employed by Pepsi in Arlington, Texas, before returning to San Antonio. Mike was known for his quick wit and infectious laugh, as well as his great enthusiasm for competitive games and sports. Michael is survived by his parents, Dave and Lori Statham; brother Steve Statham, his wife Robyn and their daughter Kelly; brother Jeff Statham, his wife Jennifer and their daughter Jessica; and brother Danny Statham. Michael was a wonderful uncle, and doted on his two nieces. Services will be held Saturday, October 16, at 2 p.m. at Sunset Funeral Chapel on Austin Highway in San Antonio. As Michael was a lifelong Dallas Cowboys fan, in lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in Michael's name to his favorite player's charitable organization, Jason Witten's SCORE Foundation.
