Michael Wayne Batson better known as “Iceman” to his friends went home to be with the Lord on Tuesday, November 30th, 2021 at CMC Main in Charlotte, NC.
He was born on November 21, 1962 in Union County to Graham and Barbara McManus Batson. He enjoyed riding his motorcycle, rebuilding cars, working security at Coyote Joes, and his last love for several years, driving trucks and hauling everything from sand and rock to lumber.
In addition to his mother Barbara Batson, he is preceded in death by his maternal and paternal grandparents, one aunt and two uncles.
Those left to cherish his memory are his father, Graham Batson and brother, Roger Batson; aunts Kathy McManus, Kaaren Moore (Melvin), and Sandra Helms (Frankie) all of Monroe; uncles Bill Batson (Tootsie) of Greensboro, Kenneth Batson (Frances) of Monroe and Stacy Batson of Catawba. Also a special friend Brittney Carnevale and her son Ziah, as well as 15 cousins.
He leaves behind a lot of trucking friends whom most grew on him to be family and he loved dearly.
The Batson family would like to give a special thank you to everyone that has kept us in their thoughts and prayers and sending lots of love our way during this difficult time.
The family will hold a visitation at Davis Funeral Service on Thursday evening from 6 until 8 PM.
Davis Funeral Service is entrusted with serving the Batson family.
