Micheal Lynn Popejoy, 59, of Cleburne, Texas, went to be with his Lord and Savior Wednesday, October 14, 2020 in Azle, Texas at his deer lease doing what he loved. Mike was born December 29, 1960 to Wesley Dwain and Shirley Darlene White Popejoy in Arlington, Texas.

Mike had an adventurous heart and loved getting away to spend time in God’s Country. He was a fiercely competitive bass fisherman, an avid saltwater fisherman and an accomplished hunter, taking and catching many dozens of trophy animals and fish all over North America. He was always a driven person, an extremely hard worker and as generous a person as there is. Mike sought to empower those around him to strive towards a better life.

After graduating Mansfield High, he became a ASC Certified Master Mechanic at 19 for Sears in Fort Worth specializing in front ends. Mike married Carla, his Sweetheart of 40 years in the Summer of 1980. He found joy in loving on and caring for Carla. In 1981, they moved to Groesbeck, Texas with his desire to fish or hunt on a daily basis where Mike grew up spending his summers with his Mawmaw and Pop. He was a loving and faithful father to Byran and Kristy. His children shared his passion for hunting and traveling. Mike enjoyed providing for, spending time, and traveling with his wife, children, and grandchildren.

In 1988, he joined Bell Helicopter as a Test Stand Operator. In the fall of 1994, Mike graduated Pi Tau Sigma for excellency in Mechanical Engineering from The University of Texas at Arlington, as the first in his family to obtain a degree, in addition to coaching little league and providing for his family. He was a Six Sigma Black Belt known industry-wide as an Engineer for Bell Helicopter. Mike was a mentor to many. He enjoyed sharing his interests with others.

Mike is survived by his wife Carla Ann Vaughan Popejoy of Cleburne; son Byran Popejoy, wife Terra, and daughter Loralie Badoni-Popejoy of Cleburne; daughter Kristy Todd, husband James, and children Breanna Todd, Ashley Todd, and Dylan Benton of Covington; brother Donald Popejoy; sister Anne Wynn and husband Burton; as well as, many nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.
