Michael J. Herron Jr., 42

Michael J. Herron Jr., 42, of Oconto Falls, formerly of West Bend, died unexpectedly on Monday, March 21, 2011, at his residence.

    He was born on Nov. 5, 1968, in Milwaukee, to Michael and Donna (nee Schultz) Herron Sr.

    Michael enjoyed the outdoors, sitting at a campfire with a beer in one hand and a cigarette in the other, telling stories. Some of his favorite past times were fishing in the summers, hunting with his family and a good game of poker. Michael could win over a room instantly with his smile and charisma. He was loved deeply by his family and that love will carry on in our hearts.

    Michael is survived by his daughter, Amanda Herron of Watertown; mother, Donna Herron of Eden; three sisters, Michelle (Matt) Chapman of Kewaskum, Danielle (Craig) Vollendorf of the town of Auburn and Jana Herron of Eden; his grandmothers, Stella Herron of Brookfield and Colleen Schultz of West Bend; many aunts; uncles; cousins; other relatives and friends.

He was preceded in death by his father, Michael Herron Sr.; and his grandfathers, Robert Herron and Robert Schultz Sr.

A celebration of Michaelís life will be held Friday, March 25, at the Amerahn (Highway 45, Kewaskum) from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, memorials to the family would be greatly appreciated.

Myrhum-Patten Funeral & Cremation Service of West Bend is serving the family. Online guest book and condolences may be found at
