Michael Survis, 63 |
July 28, 1953 — Nov. 20, 2016
Michael Survis, 63, of West Bend, found peace Sunday, Nov. 20, 2016, at his home with his family by his side.
He was born July 28, 1953, to Forest and Ruth (nee Bandle) Survis in the town of Barton. He graduated from Kewaskum High School in 1971. On Aug. 30, 1975, he was united in marriage to Sandra Pamperin at Zion Church in Allenton.
Mike worked at a number of tool-anddie shops and later entered ownership of M & L Machine Tool and Manufacturing. He loved listening to classic country music and watching the Green Bay Packers, but his favorite pastime was spending time at “the shack” in Ladysmith. He always came back with a big deer or bear, or at least a big story about one. Mike loved being a father and grandfather. He did his best to be brave for his family and lived with strength and humor up to the end. He touched many lives and will be dearly missed.
Those Mike leaves behind to cherish his memory includes his loving wife of 41 years, Sandra Survis; three children, Katherine Survis, Adam (Yvonne) Survis and Dustin Survis; a granddaughter, Eleanor Survis; his mother, Ruth Survis; three sisters, Sheila (Frank) Bauer, Susan (Wayne) Kleinmann and Alice (Andrew Jr.) Breit; two brothers, Daniel (Judith) Survis and Bruce (Judith) Survis; a sister-in-law, Mary Survis; many nieces and nephews; and other relatives and friends.
He joins in eternal life his father, Forest Survis, and two brothers, Steven Survis and Gene Survis.
A Christian victory service in remembrance of Mike will be held at 12:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 25, at the Myrhum Patten Miller & Kietzer Funeral Home (1315 W. Washington St., West Bend). Burial will be at Newark Cemetery.
The family will greet relatives and friend Friday at the funeral home from 10 a.m. until the time of service.
A special thank you from the family to relatives, friends and medical professionals for all their help and care.
