Michael “Mike” Dean Methe, 58, of Springdale Arkansas, passed away Sunday, Feb 23rd in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

Michael was born in Kearney, Nebraska to Armond “Frenchie” and Evelyn Methe on December 9th, 1961. He graduated from Kearney High School in Kearney, Nebraska. He graduated college with a Bachelor’s Degree in Broadcast Engineering from the University of Denver. The highlight of his broadcasting career was with KWCH in Wichita, Kansas from 1986 through 2006. He then began his company BrainFreezeArt and later Gp Designs until his passing. He operated & supplied Kansas Gift Stores, amongst supplying multiple other gift stores across many states with his designs and creations.

Michael was a car and drag racing enthusiast. He had a passion for photography. You could find him by the race tracks photographing. His photography also extended to his love for nature and traveling, which had been successfully used to supply his retail business. If you were part of Michael’s life, you most likely have some sort of his creation that was gifted to you. Michael was a huge Nebraska Cornhuskers Football and Kansas University Jayhawks Basketball fan. He enjoyed music and attending concerts of all genres. You could find him behind the camera lens, in front of the computer screen doing graphic design and editing, bicycling, boating, traveling, or hanging out on the porch with Gloria and their dog Lucy.

Michael is survived by his fiancé, of 8 years, Gloria Pritchett of Springdale, Arkansas, one sister Evan and husband JB Kell of Medford, Oregon, a brother Vernon Beavers of Elm Creek, Nebraska, close cousins Jeff Methe of Wichita, Kansas, and Greg Methe of Kearney, Nebraska, many uncles, aunts, cousins, nieces, nephews, Gloria’s 3 children: Josh and wife Ashley Brown, Jarin and husband Luke Fiel, Jandi and husband Heath Clem, along with 14 grandchildren, 2 great grandchildren, and an endless list of incredible friends, whom he considered family. Special thanks to John Markus, whom has been a long time close friend and mentor.

Michael was preceded in death by his parents, Armond and Evelyn Methe of Kearney, Nebraska, siblings: Betty Jo Moore of Maine, Mary Husman (Dave) of Ft. Collins, Colorado, and brother Tom Beavers of Kearney, Nebraska.

Michael was an extremely generous, energetic, caring, talented person. There wasn’t a stranger he wouldn’t try to befriend. He will be greatly missed by family, friends, and colleagues.

He particularly had a heart for the homeless, so the family has established a memorial with the Union Rescue Mission of Wichita, KS; 2800 N. Hillside St, Wichita, KS

Burial will be in Kearney, Nebraska. Date to be announced.

Condolences to Mike's family!
Was a close friend from grade school, growing up a few blocks apart.
Scouts, Cars, Racing, CBs, the Huskers, all things we shared a love of, even getting grounded for riding our bicycles out to the dragstrip without permission at age 9!
Rest in peace!
