Michael Edward Putnal was born July 30, 1955 in Bainbridge, Ga., the son of Joseph W. and Carolyn Ward Putnal. He was a graduate of Bainbridge High School, Class of 1973, and member of First Baptist Church. Mike retired from Amoco Fabrics and Fibers.

Mike loved to read, hunt and fish. Most any given day, his schedule included working and fishing. His favorite sidekick on any adventure was Haska, his beloved dog. Mike grew up in a family that valued each other and he shared that love for family with his girls. He did everything he could to make sure each family member felt cared for and had every need met. Mike’s girls and grands were “the catch of his life”.

Survivors include his daughters, Glee Putnal Powell of Bainbridge, Ga. and Michael Putnal Singletary and her husband, Jody, of Whigham, Ga.; his grandchildren, Chloe, Bree, Will, Marley, Drew and Eden; his mother, Carolyn Putnal Phillips; his siblings, Joe & Patty Putnal, Gary & Cindy Putnal, Paula & Jody Grollman, and Gina & Tim Griffin; and his dog, Haska. Mike was preceded in death by his father, J.W. Putnal, Sr.; and his brother, Keith D. Putnal.
