Michael Leon “Mickey” Arrington, 72, of Monticello, passed away Wednesday, December 26, 2018 at his home in Monticello.
He was born December 31, 1945 in Monticello, to the late Norman Arrington and Lola Brown Arrington.
He was a United States Army Veteran, retired owner and operator of Arrington Roofing and was a member of Pauline Baptist Church.
In addition to his parents, he was also preceded in death by his wife, Pamela Hale Arrington; a brother, Johnny Arrington; two sisters, Norma Warren and Joye Strebeck; and a niece, Paula Moix.
Michael loved hunting, fishing, classic cars and car shows. Anyone that knew Mickey knows that he was always ready to hit the road with his buddies to enjoy car shows anytime they got a chance. However, his greatest loves were his son Marcus and his three grandchildren Madison, Aubrey and Carson. His days spent with them were among his greatest memories. They were his pride and joy.
Survivors include one son, Marcus Arrington and wife “Kriket” of Monticello; five grandchildren, Madison, Aubrey, Carson, Shelby and Zane; two great-grandchildren, River and Jhett; one nephew, Rob Metzer and wife Karren; a very special niece, Kimberly Schultz and husband Eric and Page McDonald; and several great nieces and nephews.
Graveside service will be 4:00 p.m. Friday, December 28, 2018 in Oakland Cemetery with Rev. Dwayne Roper officiating.
