Michael V. ReichertMichael V. Reichert of Waukesha passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, June 20, 2015, at the age of 11. He was born on February 15, 2004, the son of Bret and Veronica Reichert. Michael was a fun-loving, compassionate, little boy who lit up every room with his smile, hugs, kisses and his overwhelming kindness. He loved to swim and golf. Michael was very clever, loved his sweets and he could always talk his way into “just one more.” Michael loved looking at the sky, studying the stars and dreamed of becoming an astronaut. It wasn’t uncommon to find rocks in his pockets and backpack on a regular basis; he loved the sea, sand, beaches and everything that was Earth.

He had pure genuine love that touched everyone he met. We know you are in heaven but our hearts are broken. You will not be forgotten!

Michael will be deeply missed by his parents, Bret and Veronica; twin brother, Zachary; loving sister, Isabella; grandparents, Janis Reichert, Eduardo and Antonia Lopez; aunts, Laura (George), Claudia (James), Julie, Lisa (Tim); uncles, Eduardo (Suzie) and Aaron; best friends, Krishna, Kaden, Xavier and Brandon; and cousins, other relatives and friends.

He was preceded in death by his grandfather, Michael Reichert.
