Mike was born in Milwaukee on Feb. 15, 1945, to Theodore and Evelyn (Miller) Kunz. He married Sherry Hancock on March 28, 1970 at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Wauwatosa.
Mike was a 1964 graduate of Wauwatosa West High school. He served six years in the Army Reserves, and later co-founded Kunz Company Inc. (KCI) with Sherry, specializing in industrial packaging sales.
He is survived by his children, Scott (Amanda) Kunz of Fredonia, David (Marisa) Kunz of Gurnee, Ill., and Jeff (Michelle) Kunz of Greenfield; grandchildren, Brandon, Anthony, Emma and Olivia; and sister, Kathleen (Walter) Riley. He was preceded in death by his brother, the late Daniel (Linda) Kunz. Mike is further survived by other relatives and countless friends.
Mike was inseparable from Sherry – it is hard to talk about one without mentioning the other. They were rarely seen without each other and they befriended practically everyone they met. They were extremely easy people to talk with and get to know. After Sherry passed away, Mike lived with a broken heart that was greater than anyone should bear.
Mike was universally known as a fun-loving person who was generous and selfless to an extreme. He would give you his last dollar and wouldn’t expect anything in return. If he called you a Kocklemeier, you knew he liked you!
He had a thousand stories and jokes, and didn’t mind retelling ones you already heard a few dozen times. His infectious laugh entertained a lot of crowds.
Pop, we miss you dearly.
