Mike (William H.) McAfee passed peacefully at home with family Sunday February 9, 2020. He fought hard against Parkinson’s and other declining health issues as he did everything in life. Michael loved God, his family and friends and attended Wesley Memorial Methodist Church. He graduated from City High School class of 1959. Mike served honorably in the United States Army and was retired from Delta Airlines. His passion was sports, especially handball and golf and he was nicknamed “sweet feet” by his handball buddies. Mike is survived by his wife of 52 years, Mary Jo; son Chance McAfee; daughter Niccole (Joseph) Kohlmann; and his grandchildren, Jordan McAfee and Korbin and Aiden Kohlmann. Special thanks to Melissa Mullins, his caregiver, for the love and tender care she gave “Mikey” and also to Amedisys Hospice.
