He was surrounded by a circle of friends and family as they sang one of his favorite hymns “In the sweet by and by”. Mike was welcomed home by infant son, Christopher Michael, and his precious parents John and Lorene Renfroe. Mike was a faithful friend and hard working. He was employed as a machinist at Advanced Automation Service by Mel and John Walker of Northport, Alabama for 17 years. With his mechanical mind and quick wit he has left us with many memories of days filled with laughter and wonder like only he could. We share stories of unique creations and plentiful inventions that through the years has left us all amazed at his ability to accomplish whatever he chose to fix, build or bewilder us with. He filled shoes that earned great respect and there will never be another like him. Left to cherish his love and memories is his wife of 44 years Ann Koster Renfroe, one daughter, Jeri Ann Bell (Robert), and son, Joe Renfroe. “Papa’s” spirit and love for life will be continued on by his children and grandchildren. One grand-daughter, Kristen Ann Bell, and three grandsons, Logan Renfroe, Stephen Bell, and Riley Renfroe. He will forever be loved and remembered by his five brothers, Tim Renfroe (Sue) of Northport, AL, Sonny Renfroe of Samantha, AL, Denny Renfroe (Kathy) of Bankston, AL, Kenny Renfroe (Jan) of Northport, AL, Jimmy Renfroe (Shirley) of Northport, AL and his three sisters, Mona Lowery (Ralph) of Duncanville, AL, Pam Knopp (Ronnie) of Northport, AL, Carolyn Knopp (Brian) of Tuscaloosa, AL and many other loving nieces, nephews and relatives. Whether we called him husband, daddy, brother, Papa or friend, he never disappointed or let us down. He was the one we knew that would always be there. Serving as pallbearers will be his brothers Tim, Sonny, Denny, Kenny and Jimmy, his three grandsons Logan, Stephen and Riley and son-in- law Robert Bell. Special love and appreciation is given to Dr. James Geyer and Hospice of West Alabama as they extended compassion and care through his journey home from the difficulties of Parkinson’s Disease.
