BELZONI — Graveside services for Michael “Mike” Jeffery Hoke, 62, will be at 2 p.m. Saturday, May 16, at Greencrest Gardens, Belzoni, under the direction of Mortimer Funeral Home. He died Wednesday, May 13, 2020, due to a motor vehicle accident. He was born May 16, 1957, to Nannette Fuller Hoke and Taylor Hoke in Isola. He attended Emanuel Baptist Church.
A book could be written about Mike’s life and it would easily be a best seller. He was a devoted son to his mother and loved his two sisters dearly. He loved good food, gardening, and Ole Miss, especially if they were winning.
Left to cherish their fond memories of him are his loving mom, Martha Nannette Lanham; sisters, Paula Hoke Bowers (John), of Olive Branch, and Dendra Lanham Fry (Terry), of Memphis, Tennessee; nephews, Glenn Poole (Carrie) and Michael Poole; and his favorite niece, Marti Montgomery (Jordon).
