Michael Raymond McKee

(Continued)

NORMAN —

The underlying foundation in Michael's life was his belief in and following of Jesus Christ. He was an elder in Norman Covenant Fellowship, followed by participation in the Covenant Fellowship in Oklahoma City, and finally a member of Trinity Baptist Church in Norman. It was his heart's desire that all people come to know the love of God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the guidance of the Holy Spirit; he lived his life to bear witness to that desire.

In June, 1982, Michael married Mary Jonette Fitzgerald, of the home, who survives him along with daughter, Stacey Kierstan and her husband Jay Barbre of Richmond, Ind.; sons, Kurt McKee of Norman, Frederick McKee of Denton, Texas, and 1st Lt. Stephan McKee of Manhattan, Kan; brother, Stephen McKee and his wife Jeanne of Anchorage, Alaska; sister, Karen Garrett of Bentonville, Ark.; two grandchildren, Kaydra and Daniel Barbre; nephews, Stephen McKee and wife Jennifer of Silverdale, Wash., Matthew McKee and wife Deborah of San Antonio, Texas, Dr. John McKee and wife Wendy of Kansas City, Kan., Patrick Garrett of McKinney, Texas, and Lt. Col. Gregory Garrett of Lawton; a niece, Amy Fielder and husband Kevin of Bentonville, Ark.; a dear cousin, Marie Reece and her son, Dr. Tommy Reece of Tipton; and a host of dear friends.

To make a donation in his honor, checks should be made to Trinity Baptist Church with "Chinese Fellowship" in the memo.

Visitation with the family in their home at 2727 Aspen Circle in Norman is possible on Monday, from 2 to 8 p.m.
