Michael Paul Spiking
1982 ~ 2024


King City, Missouri…Michael Paul Spiking, age 42, went to be with the Lord March 1, 2024.

    So sorry for your loss. I used to work with him at United and he was always nice to me. Prayers for your family.

    I’m so very sorry for your loss. I met Michael while working at the coop. He was always very kind, and I enjoyed speaking with him.

    Mary , Larry and the Spiking family. Marty and I are so sorry to hear about your loss. I remember Michael fixing strawberry daiquiri for us after work on Valentines day. And you telling the story of him wanting to run away from home when he was little and the way you changed his mind. What a nice upstanding young man he was, as are all your boys. Again, so sorry for your loss, Marty and Lura Burns

    Spiking Family, The good lord always takes the good ones first, this is proof.

    My condolences to Natalie, Emma, Hannah, Claria, and Olivia. There are not words that I can say to express my sorrow.
    Besides being my employer, Michael was a good friend. Always had time to assist me on any project that I was working. I will miss our in-depth discussions on current events, history, and just life in general. I will miss you immensely.
    Michael, you are now in the Lord’s hands. Rest easy my friend and until we meet again, Godspeed.

    Our sincere condolences to the Spiking families. May God lift you up and wrap his healing arms around you all. You are all in our prayers and daily thoughts.

    We were so terribly sorry to read this in the late notices of the St Joseph paper. Mike was a very special part of our lives. He was one of the ushers when Rick and I got married. Then we were proud to witness his marriage to Natalie. I know Rick was very proud of his accomplishments. Please know we are keeping his family in our thoughts and prayers.

    I am so sorry to hear about Mike. He worked for RS when I did. Yes he could talk about anything to anyone. So liked him for that. I am sure Jack and him are solving problems together

    Condolences to the Spiking Family. Mike, growing up hanging out with you on the farm was so much fun. I remember you helping me after watching me get shocked on the electric fence. I remember you moving furniture around with ease when you were smaller than your brother and I. Feels like yesterday we were staying up all night to make ourselves slap happy and hanging out on Granny and Granddad’s farm.

    My heart is heavy I won’t ever see you again. Will miss you.

    We are all so truly sorry for your loss. You are all in our thoughts and prayers. God be with all of you in your deep sorrow.
