David Michael Seagraves

Mr. David Michael "Mike" Seagraves, 69, of 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 Hospital 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.

Survivors, in addition to his wife Debbie, include his sons: Josh (Miranda) Seagraves of Gratis, Adam (Katy) Seagraves of Ila, Timmy (Missy) Queen of Comer, and Tommy Graddy of Nicholson; brother, Darrell (DeeAnn) Seagraves of Hull; aunt, Catherine “Cootie” Moore Glenn of Elberton; eleven grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.

In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his daughter, Tammy Lynn Seagraves Sartain; and one great-grandson.

The family is at the residence and will receive friends at Berry Funeral Home from 6:00-8:00p.m. on Monday, July 12.

Funeral services celebrating Mike’s life will be held on Tuesday, July 13, at 3 o’clock at Danielsville Evangelical Church. Mike will be placed in the church at 2 o’clock prior to the service. Interment will follow in the Seagraves Family Plot at Meadow Baptist Church Cemetery.

Flowers are accepted and contributions may be made in his memory to T.J. & Friends Cancer Foundation, P.O. Box 6161, Elberton, GA 30635.
