Memorial services for George Michael “Mike” Bridgeman, 73, of Sperry, OK, were held Saturday, March 14, 2020 at Community of Christ Church in Sperry, OK. Evangelist Lorenzo Hill officiated.
Mike was born February 16, 1947 in Tulsa, OK to George Kenneth and Virgie Ruth (Roberts) Bridgeman. He passed away February 22, 2020 in Sperry, OK.
Mike graduated from Glenpool High School in 1965. He married Freda Hughes on December 23, 1965 in Tulsa, OK. He was drafted into the Army and was stationed in Ft. Stewart, GA and served his country until May 1968. Mike was a member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and worked as an electrician all around Tulsa until he retired in November 20103. Mike also taught in the Apprenticeship Program there for 18 years. He was a faithful member and Deacon in the Sperry Community of Christ Church.
Mike loved riding motorcycles. He and Freda did lots of traveling. If Mike wasn’t tinkering in his workshop, you would find him watching episodes of Star Trek. He enjoyed reading about airplanes and the closest he got to owning one was a power chute he adored. He collected rocks from his travels as well as hat pins from different states and attractions. If you needed something done you could always count on Mike to help. He never said a hateful word and did not have a prejudiced bone in his body. He was truly a kind soul and will be missed by many.
He is survived by his wife, Freda Bridgeman; daughters, Joi Taylor and husband, Stan, and Lori Moses and husband, Greg; grandchildren, Gabrielle Pinkston and husband, Kyle, Chloe Jorgensen. Jacob Bridgeman, Janet Guerra and husband, Daniel, Zac Taylor and Josh Taylor; great-grandchildren, Emmett Pinkston and Parker Pinkston, and Emira Morgan; brother, Jack Bridgeman and wife, Gayle, Bob Bridgeman, Gerald Bridgeman and wife, Bekki, and Dusty Bridgeman and wife, Peggy; brothers-in-law, Frank Hughes and wife, Dyanna, and Dennis Hughes and wife, Vickie; numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews; and many other relatives and friends.
