Otis McMichael, Jr., born July 27, 1951, to Otis McMichael and Pearlena Dunn McMichael was the older of their two (2) children and the only boy. He grew up in a Christian home where his father, Otis, Sr., was a member of Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church, his mother a member of Bethlehem Baptist Church, and he later joined Baptist Grove Baptist Church. At Baptist Grove, he served in varying roles. Otis enjoyed designing, constructing and creating things. Upon his graduation from JW Ligon High School, he matriculated at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University, Greensboro, NC, where he earned a Bachelor of Science Engineering degree. He was immediately hired by the Hughes Aircraft Company and moved to California. Otis often shared fond memories of his avionics, missile and rocket design work. Otis retired from Hughes Aircraft and returned home to care for his mother who is now 96. Even though he spent much of his time as a care-giver, he also completed small assignments as a brick mason trained by his father. He was preceded in death by his father Otis McMichael, Sr., and his only sister Brenda Jo McMichael. Cherishing his memory are his mother Pearlena McMichael, his aunt Esther Dozier, and his first cousins, Robert C. Dunn, Marrion Dunn and David Dunn.

2 Corinthians 1:3,4 gives us the assurance that "the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies" is the "God of all comfort" and he "comforts us in all our trials" Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 34:18; Psalm 147:3) jw.org
