Michael Anthony Wyatt, 39, husband of Sandra Elizabeth Wyatt, passed away peacefully on January 29, 2018 at the Medical College of Virginia in Richmond. Mike battled courageously through cancer and a transplant and fought bravely until the end.
Born on October 10, 1978, he was the son of Robert Mitchell Jones, Sr. and Maria Anna Jones, and Edward Michael Wyatt. Mike worked for New Ravenna and was a member of Maranatha Baptist Church. He enjoyed woodworking, skateboarding, playing guitar and doing outdoor projects.

A memorial service will be conducted Sunday, February 4th at 2:00 PM from the Maranatha Baptist Church with Rev. Mike Muender officiating. Interment will be private. A time of fellowship will follow the service at the church.
Should friends desire, donating blood to the Red Cross would be a perfect way to remember Mike and his journey.
