Michael Spriggs Obituary

Michael W. Spriggs, 56 of Ashville, OH passed away on Monday, February 12, 2024 at The James OSU Cancer Hospital in Columbus, OH.  He was born on September 7, 1967 in Columbus. Mike was a 1985 graduate of Teays Valley and worked for Nationwide Insurance for 33 years as a life product consultant.  He was a member and past president of the Ashville Community Men’s Club and served as a past president and honorary director for the Ohio Festivals and Events Association.  He enjoyed being involved in his community. Throughout the years, he coached youth and high school sports teams.  He volunteered countless hours volunteering at and coordinating events to support the Mid-Ohio Food Collective and the Ashville Weekend Backpack Hunger program.  For 15 years, he and Kelly spent many weekends serving as chaperones and sharing Ohio’s festivals with Miss Ashville 4th of July courts.  

Mike enjoyed golfing, traveling, camping, and just spending time with his family, but most of all he was especially proud to have been promoted to the title of “Papa.”
