Funeral Services:

David R. “Spike” Uhl, passed away peacefully on July 2, 2018 at Sparrow Hospital in Lansing.  Spike, 64, of Charlotte, was born January 9, 1954 in Charlotte, the son of Darrell and Marquetta (Mulhollan) Uhl.  He attended Charlotte Schools and graduated in 1973. He worked at Specialty Casting, Inc. in Springport for 25 years. He married the love of his life, Teresa Lynn Harris on June 17, 1978.

Spike loved to spend time with his family and they went on many trips.  Camping, amusement parks and going to see his children play sports were some of his favorite things to do.  He was very good at telling tall tales and enjoyed seeing how long the other person believed him.  He enjoyed hunting and fishing and just going for a ride. His most favorite holiday was the 4th of July and he went to many parades and loved to watch the fireworks.

Spike is survived by his partner in crime and mother of his children, Teresa Uhl; children, Angela (Vaughn) Barnett, Aaron (Hayley) Uhl, Alanna Uhl and Andrew (Angela) Uhl; grandchildren, Kaitlyn, Kyle, Hunter, Daphne, Jaxson, Temperance, M’Kenna and Lakota; great-grandchildren, Parker, Jameson, Sienna, Akira, Kayden, Zaine and Lilith; siblings, Darrell “Mike” (Nancy) Uhl, Gerald “Ike” (Jean) Uhl and Doris (John) Uhl; and many other wonderful extended family.

Spike was preceded in death by his parents, Darrell and Marquetta Uhl; grandchildren, Kayla and Kyle Barnett; and his nephew, Curtis Harris.
