It is with the deepest sense of grief and sadness to learn of Mike’s passing. There is joy in the knowledge of the Resurrection that he will live again by his faith and belief in Christ Jesus. Mike was a mentor to me in a difficult time of my own life and he assisted me to know the Truth and was always encouraging and inspiring. He was a true man among men and lived as a faith-inspiring example to everyone. He spoke of being a Renaissance Man, but mainly he spoke of being a man of God, seeking the Lord’s Heart and the Way of the Truth.
“Home is the Sailor, home from the Sea. And the Hunter home from the Hill.” God Bless You, my friend. And God Bless Trudy, and all your family and friends.
Marian Jones says
The Deer Creek Congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses will miss Michael very much. He was a regular attender and participant along with his wife Trudy at the Meetings.
Suzanne Anthony says
I remember Mike when I went to the Edmond congregation years ago, funny and intelligent. Trudy said Mike never said no to anybody that needed him to assist or cover. I think about Mike and Trudy a lot now that he has passed and use him as an encouragement to see him in the new system.
Tisha Weaver says
You never know how much you appreciate even the smallest of kindnesses of visiting an ill one in the hospital. Mike did this several times for my unbelieving husband fighting cancer. How much my husband looked forward to those visits. Such a loving, witty, and empathetic brother. We will miss him greatly. Trudy we love you & we give thanks to Jehovah’s loving provision of the resurrection, comfort, & our loving brotherhood.
Felicia Cohran says
I never thought there would be a world without Brother McQuaid. I always called him a big loving teddy bear. He was always there for everybody and he has helped me and comforted me at my lowest times. I will miss him dearly , I will miss his smile and his laugh. This just helps me continue to work on maintaining my faith so that I can see him soon.
With Sympathy and Love,
