Michael Joe Congrove

    Michael Joe Congrove, 64, of Kingston, passed away on June 11, 2022 unexpectedly. He was born December 1, 1957, in Chillicothe, the son of Billy Joe and Patty (Lunsford) Congrove, who survive.

    In addition to his parents, Mike is survived by his children, Julie (BJ) Bass, David Congrove, and Bradley Congrove; sister, Linda Congrove; aunts and uncles, Eldon “Buck” (Joyce) Congrove, Roy (Alice) Congrove, Joyce Bivens, Dean Congrove, all local residents, and Wilma Boyd, of Naples, Florida; and numerous other special family members and friends whom he cherished.

Congrove; and aunts and uncles, Orville and Jean Lunsford, Millie and Dick Wise, Fay and Bob Widholm, Bill Boyd, William "Jake" and Mary Lunsford, and Jack and Karen Lunsford.     

    Mike was a 1976 graduate of Zane Trace High School and retired from DuPont, Circleville, after almost four decades of service. Mike’s passion was his family. He was a wonderful son, brother, and father.  He gave loving and devoted care to his parents Patty and Billy Joe.  He visited them multiple times every day and he and his dad spent countless hours sitting on the front porch visiting and watching the sunset. Mike was well known for his kind nature and generosity. He never met a stranger. Friends and family knew they could count on Mike for anything. He enjoyed trucking and loved his old Kenworth and Western Star. He also loved watching dirt track racing and baseball with his kids. He loved his Beagle, Joey.
