James Michael Fleming aka - Mike - Big Earl Mike was born on January 2, 1951 and passed on August 5th, 2020 Mike has joined his lifelong love in heaven. Jana Fleming passed on February 19, 2016. He was heartbroken with the loss, and really wanted to be back with her. He was never the same after her passing. Son of James and Madge Fleming. His siblings include; Lisa Buffington, Randy Fleming , and Regina West. His two sons, Matt and Brad Fleming were the light of his life. Brad's wife is April Fleming and they have two children, Lola and Dylan. Matt is married to Michele Fleming and has 4 kids; Haleigh, Sean, Nicole, and Ryan. Haleigh has two children, Liam and Leighkin Adamson. Glenn and Cora Fleming were very special to him, as they took over the role of "parents" after his passed on. Mike was born in Bartow County, and has resided in Woodstock, GA since 1985. The last 5 years he lived with Brad and April's family on Lake Allatoona. He loved to sit on the porch and just look over at the lake. It was kinda like his happy place. Mike was a true family man. He wouldn't miss a gathering if he was able to attend. Spending time with his siblings and children's family is what he lived for. He would always end up the life of the party, as everyone tended to gravitate towards him. His extended family is quite large and he cherished them all. He worked for CSX Railroad for 30 years and retired in 2007. He loved to be with his family, eat good food, and enjoy a beverage while telling old stories of the days gone by. In the latter years, he traveled extensively with Brad and family, until he just couldn't do it any longer. He even traveled to NYC, and that was a sight. Although he seemed to be a fish out of water, he loved soaking in Manhattan with his family. He even traveled in a tour van with a bunch of stinky guys from town to town at one point. He lived his life well. He was loved by all for his genuine kindness and infectious giggle. He and Jana would take in anyone that needed a bed to sleep in and food in their belly. He made a huge impact on Matt and Brad's friends, as they loved them all as their own. Big Earl, you will be missed by ALL. I hope you and Jana are enjoying your time together.
