Michael's Life Story

Michael Allan Iverson , beloved son, father, grandfather, brother and friend, entered into eternal rest on Wednesday, July 21 2021 in Kansas City, MO. He was born in Norwalk, Iowa on March 11, 1956 to Laura (Darlene) and Gordon Iverson. Michael was reared in a home where love, faith, kindness, hard work and generosity to others was taught, and he continued these qualities all throughout his life. The bonds he created with people in his life was by his choice, regardless of how it started and he would remain steadfastly loyal to them.

Mike was, in the words of those who knew him, fearless, jokester, passionate, witty, kind, selfless, giving, warm, and deeply devoted to those he loved. From football to Baseball to hockey, he had a lifelong love of many sports. Throughout his adult life, Mike was a dedicated St. Louis Cardinals baseball fan as well as an Iowa State Cyclones fans. He owned a blue and red St. Louis Cardinals jacket that had seen better times but he refused to part with. One thing is for sure, you could easily tell by his reaction if his team was winning or not. 

Mike worked in the trucking industry for Capital City Fruit as a truck driver for many years. Throughout his life, he was able to enjoy many things which included traveling and attending sports activities. He would often admit he didn’t always make the best decisions in life, but he knew what he was living for.

Having moved to Kansas City after retirement to be closer to his grandchildren, Mike attended all his granddaughters music recitals and other school events, even the annoying trip to the hair or nail salon. 

Mike lived his life devoted to his family and it provided him the greatest joy throughout his life, as he provided the most wonderful joy for them. He will forever live in the hearts of his children and family. 

Michael is survived by his daughters, Arkeya McMillian-Harris, DaMarra Smith and Nella (Tylisha) Maldonado and grandchildren; Ja’Raya Gochett, Amari McMillian, Keyari Gochett, Arniya Gochett, Elijah Smith, Tailynn Taylor and Gently Pulliam; brother David Iverson, Uncle Jim Iverson.
