COLBERT - David Michael "Mike" Seagraves, 69, River Estates Drive, Colbert, husband of 26 years to Deborah Kay Steadman Seagraves, went to be with the Lord peacefully on Friday, July 9, 2021, at Piedmont Athens Regional Medical Center with his family at his side.
Mike was born in Athens on September 3, 1951, son of the late Billie and Dorothy Virginia Hendrick Seagraves. He was a 1969 graduate of Madison County High School and worked as a plumber all of his life, currently employed by Smith Plumbing Solutions Plus. Mr. Seagraves was a proud born-again Christian who attended Danielsville Evangelical Church. Mike devoted much of his time to international mission work having travelled to Haiti, Panama and South Africa sharing the Gospel of Christ. He was an avid bass fisherman who loved the competition that came along with fishing tournaments; however, his greatest love was his family and his favorite name was “Papa”, as he was lovingly called by his grandchildren. Mike unselfishly served his country in the U.S. Army.
In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his daughter, Tammy Lynn Seagraves Sartain; and one great-grandson.
Survivors, in addition to his wife Debbie, include his sons, Josh (Miranda) Seagraves, Gratis, Adam (Katy) Seagraves, Ila, Timmy (Missy) Queen, Comer, and Tommy Graddy, Nicholson; brother, Darrell (DeeAnn) Seagraves, Hull; aunt, Catherine “Cootie” Moore Glenn, Elberton; 11 grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.
