Mike was called to be an advocate for children's best interests through his work with Lawyers for Children. He also mentored many young men through his years of volunteer coaching. His passions included Bible study, golf, O.U. football, dogs, and spending quality time with his family and friends.
He is preceded in death by his parents, his brother, Steve and sister, Joyce.
Mike is survived by his wife, Salley, and their two children, Sidney Elizabeth Cargill and J. Marshall Longley, and six grandchildren.

Mike was my buddy from 7th grade to graduation to reunion plannings! What a great smile and sarcastic personality! Just loved him. I am so sad to lose this bright, smart, and treasured Christian servant friend. Let us all pray for sweet Sally and his children. Much love, Margaret Ann
