Mike "Spoon" Spratlin

November 13, 1959 — March 1, 2023

Henderson

 

 

James Michael (Mike) Spratlin, affectionately known as “Spoon,” died unexpectedly on Wednesday, March 1, 2023 at Jackson-Madison County General Hospital at the age of 63.

Mike was well-known far and wide as he never met a stranger. Having worked in construction all his life, he made friends on every job.  Due to his strong work ethic and excellent carpentry skills, Mike never lacked for work. In fact, he sincerely loved working and never let anything get in the way of getting a job done right. Second to this love of working was his love for all things John Deere.  Nothing made him happier than attending tractor shows and displaying his tractors or riding them in a parade.

Mike was born on November 13, 1959, the son of the late James Robert Spratlin and Margie Ashmore Stanford.  He was also preceded in death by his grandparents, James R. Spratlin, Sr. and Emma Gillion Spratlin and Vera Ashmore and John Thomas Ashmore. 

He leaves behind his beloved family: wife, Donna Spratlin; son, Christopher Spratlin (Christian) of Bartlett, TN; daughter, Jessica Thompson (Brandon) of Jackson, TN; daughter, Vikki McDaniel (Joe Gullett) of Jackson, TN; son, Lance Mosher (Kristen) of Meraux, Louisiana; and grandchildren: Thomas Martin, Savannah Spratlin, and Abby Spratlin of Bartlett, TN; Christian Thompson and Gracie Thompson of Jackson, TN; and Silas Mosher and Asher Mosher of Meraux, Louisiana. 

Funeral services will be 11:00 AM Monday March 6, 2023 at Shackelford Funeral Directors - East Main Chapel with Lance Mosher officiating. Burial will follow at Pleasant Hill Baptist Church Cemetery.

The family will receive friends at East Main from 5:00 to 8:00 PM Sunday.

Those serving as pallbearers will be Thomas Martin, Christian Thompson, Billy Murchison, Darryl Cox, Tommy Colbert, and Brandon Connor.

In lieu of flowers, the family has requested memorial contributions be directed to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital in Memphis, TN.
