Mike was born on December 16, 1948 in Bluefield, West Virginia, the son of the late Bernard Wyatt and Olivia (Otey) Setters. After graduating high school, he served his county proudly in the U.S. Navy/Naval Weather Service from 1969-1975, stationed in Kodiak, Alaska. After an honorable discharge, he served in the Air National Guard until 1979. During this time, he attended both the University of West Virginia and Western Carolina University. His time in the military led him to a 34 year career with the National Weather Service; during this period, he held various positions, most recently Senior Instructor at the Training Center. He earned the prestigious NWS Modernization Award in 1996. After retiring, he enjoyed his part-time work at KCI as a Weather Observer at the control tower. On October 5, 1985, he was united in marriage to Elizabeth Ann Stover. They both thoroughly enjoyed raising their son, Ethan. Mike’s passion for sports cars was shared with Ann and Ethan, and his artistic ability inherited by his son. Mike was involved with the Patriot Guard and enjoyed being able to ride his motorcycle while honoring the service of our veterans.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a sister, Marcella Wyatt. He leaves behind his wife, Ann Stover-Wyatt of the home; son, Ethan Wyatt of Overland Park, KS; brothers, Alan Wyatt of Middletown, OH, and Wayne Maxwell of San Diego, CA; sister, Tammy Maxwell of Charlotte, NC; as well as many nieces, nephews and extended family members. Everyone, including Sammie, his faithful and affectionate German Shepherd, will miss Mike’s sense of humor and his warm smile.
