Mike was a great man with a wonderful sense of humor. You could always see him with my Dad and the other Dads at the BC practices. The parent trips to Athens to see Mark and I at the Sigma Chi house were always filled with lots of fun. Rest In Peace

- Ray DeMott, Savannah, GA

Marsha I am so sorry to hear of Mike's passing.

- Sue Hagins , Savannah , Ga

It breaks my heart that my friend and brother-in-law Mike is gone. He was always my “go to” for advice after my husband passed away. We shared many a laugh and good times, especially when his brother (my husband) was alive. The Georgia games, the golf tournament trips, the beach trips to Savannah and just the many visits to Newnan, playing putt putt and going out to eat. He was like his mother, just full of love and happiness. He will be missed terribly by the whole Stroud Family. But I know he is one very blessed and happy guy right now and soon we will all be together again, much happier than we can even dream.

- Jimmy Stroud Family , Newnan, Ga

MAY HE RIP THE MELL FAMILY

- JOHN MELL, Savannah, Georgia

To the entire Stroud family, heart felt condolences on the passing of Mr. Mike. The BC Class of 85 dads (football dads in particular) were a great group of guys...always alot of wit and devoted service to the school. I was fortunate to have a relationship with Mike through our mutual affiliation with the FSOSP and our gatherings were always memorable. Eternal Rest grant unto him O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon him. Rest easy shipmate, we have the watch.

- Rob Creech, Savannah, GA

Mike will be missed. Great suporter of Bacon Park GC. RIP Mike

- Robert Elmore, Sylvania, GA

To Marsha and the entire Stroud Family, I wish to offer my sincerest sympathy to you all as we mourn this wonderful man. We were so lucky and blessed to have Mike for these many days. Although we would have wanted many more, we were selfish in knowing that he was suffering so much in his final days. In spite of this, he was always the gentleman, always. Caring for others was his constant manner, as he was also so gracious with his time and his advice. I have been the fortunate benefactor of his advice. The manner in which he carried his burden with cancer was incredible. With the entire Stroud family, I am in prayer for you all to receive God’s infinite love and comfort at this hour. Chip Chambers Savannah

My condolences to my dear friend, Mr. Stroud. I've known him since I was a kid working at bacon park golf course. Mike was a class act. Always very youthful in spirit and very witty. I will miss him dearly. Mike, keep it in the heavenly short grass. That was always his advice to me with my natural draw shot.
