It is with great sadness that the family of Mike Chatfield announces Mike’s passing.
Mike passed peacefully at Hospice of Ashland, surrounded by his loving family after a brave battle with cancer.
Mike’s children and grandchildren were the pride and joy of his life, the legacy of Mike’s kind spirit will live on through them.
Mike was a kind and gentle person who loved spending time with his family, friends and loving wife, Kathy.
All who knew Mike loved him.
There was nothing that Mike liked better than the Ironton Memorial Day Parade and hollering at all his friends as they passed.
He also loved sharing stories with his friends and family.
It was often said that there wasn’t a stranger that Mike didn’t know.
He was a man of faith and lived a life always helping others.
Mike will be sadly missed by all.
