Michael Wayne Brawley 43 of Amoret MO passed away June 21, 2017. There
will be a celebration of Life at a later date.
Mike was born July 2nd 1973 in Independence MO. Mike moved to the Adrian
area at the age of thirteen with his parents and two siblings. Mike's
first job was in the fourth grade at a Lawn Mower shop. It was this job
that began his passion for tinkering and fixing things. There was not
anything that Mike could not fix. When he was seventeen he began working
at the Starter and Alternator shop in Passiac. Mike eventually started
roofing and traveling with his brother Frank Brawley. When Mike was
nineteen years old he met Lori Finklang, who he later married and fathered
two children with. Mike's purpose in life was always providing for his
family. In his early thirties Mike accomplished acquiring his Class A CDL,
which transitioned him into truck driving. For a number of years Mike and
Lori owned their own successful business, hauling rock out of Adrian Rock
Quarry. Mike eventually moved to over the road hauling and eventually
moved back to hauling locally up until the time of his death. Mike was a
man of many hobbies, from guitar playing to fishing, and being “Mr.
Fix-it”, he avidly enjoyed motorcycles and ATV riding. Those that knew
him would commonly see him out and about on his four wheelers and motor
cycles. Mike always had a joke to tell and could bring a smile to anyone.
Mike was easily described as a hard worker and a “tough guy”.

He is survived by his wife Lori Brawley his two daughters Shelby Finklang
and Michaela Brawley. One granddaughter Lynore Finklang. His father and
mother Vearl and Sue Brawley One brother Frank Brawley and wife Cindy. One
sister Darla Lewis and husband Brian. Four nieces and nephews and five
great nieces and nephews.

A savings account has been set up in honor of Michael for the family at all three of the Adrian Bank locations.
