Michael James Limox, 57, of Port Charlotte, Florida passed away Sunday, February 3, 2019 with family by his side.
Mike was special. He had a sweet smile and spirit, and was extremely loving. He enjoyed being with his family; especially watching Andy Griffith and Westerns with his dad. He enjoyed food, especially cake and ice cream, and bike riding. Mike loved traveling and had an amazing sense of direction. He loved reading his Bible, and especially loved listening and singing to gospel music. Mike was always excited to praise God, and others were encouraged to worship God due to Mike’s worshipful example.
Mike is greatly missed already, especially by his family. We look forward to the day to be with him again in Heaven. He will always have a special place in our hearts.
