Michael Allen Pryor passed away on April 15, 2013 at his home in Kingwood, Texas. He was born July 10, 1954 in San Jose, Calif. and spent most of his adult life in Medford, Ore. He lived with his wife and best friend Saundra Goldman in Kingwood, and is survived by his brother, Mark Lance in Medford.
An avid gearhead, Michael loved anything with a motor, enjoyed watching NHRA drag racing, and worked forty years in the car industry. Most recently he owned Chip Shots custom paint restoration business. He also served two years in the Navy.
Michael never met a stranger; he was a loyal and compassionate friend to everyone he knew. He adored his wife of thirteen years and showed her every day how it feels to be loved and cherished. He sent her flowers just because, delighted in finding ways to make her smile, and happily contributed to her shoe addiction. Michael's gentleness was evident in his everyday actions, taking care of their beloved cats Harley, Vinny, and Atticus.
A celebration of Michael's life will be held later this year. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the American Liver Foundation in Michael's name.
