Alabama Baptist pastor Michael “Mike” Stancil died Dec. 26 after a six-week battle with COVID-19.

Stancil, 49, was pastor of Fulton Bridge Baptist Church, Hamilton, and would easily be described by many as “a great friend, pastor, husband and father.”

His parents Lonnie and Dorothy Stancil could have predicted those attributes would be true early on because of the strength of character he showed even as a child, teenager and young adult.

He was known for loving people and investing in many.

Along with his work through the church and in the community, Stancil also served a stint on the Alabama Baptist State Board of Missions.

He is survived by his wife Michelle and children Lexi and Josh.
