Obituary of Michael Lee Shidler

On Friday morning January 14, 2022, our courageous Michael Lee Shidler, 58, was called to take his place in the Heavenly choir.  Through his life, he worked very hard and received many blessings.  He always stayed strong in his faith and had an undying love for his family and friends, especially his son, Thomas Michael Shidler.  He was a member of the First Baptist Church in Francesville, IN where he was baptized as a teen. 

Michael was born on October 28, 1963 in Indianapolis, IN.  He grew up in Francesville and graduated from West Central High School in 1982.  His first job was with Ward Stone running heavy equipment and then Sun Chemical in Frankfort, IN.  He moved to Louisiana where he began working in the oil industry.  This led him to Texas, where he worked for Baker Hughes, Halliburton, and Schlumberger until he started his own company, Maverick Supply Services, which he successfully owned and operated for many years. 

I will sing to the Lord, for He has been good to me. -Psalm 13:6
