Thomas was born in Durant, OK. to Bess Bootes and Thomas Newton Shipp, Jr. He attended grade school in Sherman and graduated from Putnam City High School, Putnam City, OK in 1963 and attended Ok. State Un. prior to enlisting in the Air Force. He served as a SSgt at Tinker AFB, Oklahoma City, OK. He married Linda Mae King in February of 1975 and returned to Sherman to work for the Tom Shipp Co. He later worked for Love Monument Co, owned and operated Concrete and Steel and worked for the Fishel Co. through his retirement in 2005.
Mike loved nothing more than to be with family and friends and would often surround himself with both while cooking up his latest cowboy style dish, telling stories of his childhood and selling "penny" pocketknives. He had quite the passion for construction and concrete and leaves behind thousands of miles of both. A man of strong conviction and faith, he often shared and studied the Word of God. He also was a member of the Travis Masonic Lodge.
He leaves behind a host of family and friends that will miss him.
