Michael Overcast

Michael Overcast ended his earthly journey Monday, May 27, 2019, and ended the path his disease had taken him.

He was born Oct. 28, 1946, in Murray, Kentucky, to John Lee Overcast and Marie Overcast Frakes.

He served in the U.S. Air Force during the Vietnam War. He earned his degree in agriculture business from Murray State University.

He started his career with the Farm Credit system in Kentucky and moved to Lockhart, Texas. He then went to Farm Credit Bank in Austin, Texas. With a short break, he opened a Sears store which sold in 2002. He went back to the Farm Credit system and moved to McKinney, Texas, where he managed the Heritage Land Bank. After retiring in 2012 and planning to travel, in 2015 he was diagnosed with Corticobasal Degeneration (CBD), a rare neurological disease. Spending the last three years of his life in his chair, he never complained. He always had a smile on his face and a hello for everyone.

Mike is survived by his wife Linda, whom he married Jan. 1, 1982, who was his caregiver and by his side every day of his illness; his mother, Marie Frakes and stepfather, Ray Frankes; his siblings, Roger Overcast and wife Carol, Linda Sheffield and husband Morris and Sharon Hobbs and husband Ricky, all of Huntsville, Alabama; his children, Mike Foust and wife Shannon of Houston, Texas, Shelly Kelly and husband Marshall and Angela Lee and husband Stephen, all of Lockhart, Texas, Lisa O’Bryan (Bill Alexander) and Lori Johnson and husband Andy, all of Murray; his grandchildren, Noah, Emilee, Chloe and Aaron Foust of Houston, Kailee (Mario) Guttierrez and Madison Kelly of Lockhart, Bella and Kaitlynn Lee of Lockhart, Jeremy (Kala) O’Bryan, Dugan Pearson (Gabby), Alesha James (Michael) and Madison Johnson, all of Murray; and great-grandchildren, Rylee and Jessi James and Audrey and Braxton O’Bryan, all of Murray.
