Michael Gary Shannon

Michael Gary Shannon, 69, of Hull, Texas was called home by our Heavenly Father on Saturday, December 5, 2020, at the HCA Hospital in Conroe, Texas from COVID pneumonia. Michael was born on May 27, 1951, in Corpus Christi, Texas to Arthur and Mary Shannon.

Michael worked several different pipefitting jobs after high school then went on to work for Brown and Root but after a couple of years decided to open his own business. He was the owner and operator of Shannon Welding in Hull, Texas for 46 years. For the last 3 years, he has also been a co-operator of Spoonbill RV Park in Smith Point, Texas with his wife Glenda and good friends Mike and Tammy Edwards. He was a member of the Day Spring Church in Liberty, Texas. He was also a member of the Liberty Elks Lodge #2019 for 38 years and severed as the Exalted Ruler for one year. Michael enjoyed spending time with his friends and never met anyone that wasn’t a friend but especially loved spending time with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He loved fishing and boating but more boating than fishing unless someone was there to bait his hook and take the fish off when he caught them.

Mr. Shannon is preceded in death by his son, Michael Gary Shannon II; granddaughter, Ivy Shannon; great-granddaughter, Aizley Shannon, and his parents Arthur and Mary Shannon.

He is survived by his loving wife of 50 years Glenda Kay (Hudspeth) Shannon; daughter, Glenda Kay (Shannon II) Mitschke; grandchildren, Trey Shannon, Ryan and Kayla (Shannon) Carter, Ashley Shannon, Mika Shannon, Raelynn Shannon, Tyler Finn, Nicholas Parker, Zoe Showalter, Victoria Showalter, Cameron Mitschke, and Matthew Mitschke; great-grandchildren, Evan Downs and Levi Carter; brother, Gene Shannon; sister, Debbie (Shannon) Vaughn, Patti (Shannon) Chandler and husband David.

Coby Elliott speaking, and honorary pastor, Tolbert Hudspeth, interment will follow at Guedry Cemetery. A gathering of Mr. Shannon's family and friends will be held Monday, December 7, 2020, from 5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. also at Shannon Welding.
