Mike Gravely


Passed: Sunday, November 12, 2023
Funeral: Thursday, November 16, 2023

Age: 69
Location: Greer, SC

Michael Lee "Mike" Gravley, 69, of Greer, won his battle with cancer on November 12, 2023, as he was ushered into the arms of his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

A native of Greer, son of the late Leon Gravley and Phyllis Mullins Gravley Henderson, he was the owner of Shoptops, LLC and a member of His Vineyard.

A 1980 member of the PGA Tour, Mike regained his amateur status and won dozens of championships, including being the only golfer to win the Pickens and Spartanburg County Amateurs, Festival of Flowers, and Greenville County Amateur, the latter of which he won a record of four times.

He won the Greater Greer Open 10 times, numerous club titles, several South Carolina and Carolinas Golf Association Championships and played in multiple USGA National Championships. He was a fierce competitor, but friendships were greater than victories, as he would always be first in line to say "well done" to the winner.

Mike will forever be remembered for his love of the Lord, and his love for his family and friends. He was a man full of life and laughter, a loyal friend to so many.


Surviving are his wife and soulmate, Lori Leonhardt Gravley; son, Michael Gravley II (Korina) of Jacksonville, North Carolina; daughter, Susan Floyd (Paul) of Greer; brother, Robbie Gravley (Josie) of Greer; three granddaughters; and numerous nieces and nephews, and great-nieces and great-nephews.
