Obituary

Once upon a time there was a king born by the name of Michael Anthony Jones, Jr., affectionately known to family and friends as “Lil Mike.” Lil Mike was born in Chicago, Illinois, on November 16, 1990, to Rachael Stewart and Michael Anthony Jones, Sr. Lil Mike was raised on
the North side of Chicago where he graduated from A. N. Pritzker Elementary School. He attended Lincoln Park High School in Chicago. During his teenage years, Lil Mike moved to Peoria, Illinois, where he attended Richwood High School. He remained in Peoria until his untimely death.
Lil Mike was very artistic, and he loved to draw. He could literally draw anything he laid eyes on. At a young age, he discovered a love for cutting hair, practicing on his little brothers for years. While in Peoria, Lil Mike discovered a love for doing tattoos and rapping.
Lil Mike was definitely a lady’s man. He never met a lady that he couldn’t charm. As a result of all of his charming, he leaves behind 23 loving and amazing children. Lil Mike loved all of his children. His face always lit up when he talked about his kids. He was a very proud dad!
Lil Mike was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Richard and Constance Stewart.
Lil Mike leaves to cherish his memories, his loving parents; mother, Rachael Stewart; father, Michael Jones, Sr.; grandparents, Rose Smith and Cary Jones, Sr.; five brothers, Shamari Stewart, Marcey Jones, Malik Jones, Paul Burse, and Ricky Burse; four sisters, Danitra Jones-Laird, Miracle Jones, Paula Burse, and Sherita Burse; three uncles, Robert Montgomery, Cary Jones, Jr., and Michael Stewart; five aunts, Ramona Turner, Tasha Fountain, Rochelle Jones, Cassandra Grossley, and Phyllis Stewart; all of his loving children; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and other extended family and friends.
