A celebration of his life will be held at 1:00 pm, Saturday, October 29, 2022, at Pierce Chapel United Methodist Church, Columbus, Georgia, with a visitation following the service.
Mike was born in San Angelo, Texas to the late Marion and Spurgeon “Spud” Alford and lived in a variety of places through his formative years as his family was military. His family settled in Hattiesburg, Mississippi where he graduated from high school and then attended the University of Southern Mississippi after receiving a football scholarship. Mike graduated from USM with a degree in Business Administration and married his college sweetheart, Wynn Pigott Alford. For the last thirty years, he has lived and raised his family in Columbus, Georgia.
Mike was an avid golfer and loved a good game with friends at Maple Ridge Golf Course. Mike had a wonderful and witty sense of humor, and was loved by an entire community of people. His pride and joy were his three girls as well as his two adorable grandchildren.
He is survived by his wife of forty years, Wynn Alford, and his three daughters, Ashley Alford Becker (Josh), Carley Alford Lewis (Jesse), and Mary Kathryn Alford, as well as grandchildren Lucy and Ford Lewis. He is also survived by his brother Spud Alford Jr, many beloved nieces and nephews, cousins, and so many special friends.
