Michael A. Dedert, 62Michael "Mike" A. Dedert, 62, of the town of Wayne, passed away Saturday, April 15, 2017, due to a heart attack.

Mike was born March 26, 1955, to Robert and Jean (nee Chartier) Dedert.

He graduated from Nicolet High School, class of 1973. He married the love of his life, Sharon (nee Kenehan), on Jan. 10, 1976. Mike was involved in his family’s printing business and later worked in machine repair at a variety of companies, including Quad Graphics, Arandell and Faustel.

 Finding a unique niche in his field, he realized his lifelong goal of being self employed as an independent contractor and consultant.

Mike loved the outdoors and was never more content than strolling through his woods or gazing over his property from the balcony. Some of his many hobbies included aviation, weather tracking, hunting, fishing, boating, snowmobiling, motorcycles, racing, electronics and repairing just about anything that anyone ever needed. He inspired and taught many young people about fishing, hunting, waterskiing and so much more. He was always ready with a word of advice or a creative solution to any problem. Above all, he was dedicated to his family.

Mike is survived by Sharon, his devoted wife of 41 years, and the children he was so very proud of, Ryan (Heather) and Sara (Levi) Boyer.

He was continually blessed by his grandchildren, Makayla, Hailey, Ashlyn, Brianna, Nathan, Chloe and was looking forward to meeting Rylie and a baby girl on the way. Mike is further survived by his parents, Bob and Jean; grandmother, Lorraine Chartier; siblings, Linda, Karen (Doug) and Don (Christa); and nieces, nephews, other relatives, and many, many friends.
