Michael Alfred Wolverton, age 71 of Nashville, passed away on June 22, 2015. Mike was born May 5, 1944 in Richmond, CA to Alf and Hazel Wolverton.
Mike moved to Texas at age 6. He attended South Oak Cliff High School before entering the Army and serving in Korea, just prior to Vietnam. He was a member of the IBEW and was a master electrician, general contractor, and a private pilot. Mike was a small business owner until his retirement last year.
