Mike Jochim, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, April 9, 2020 due to complications from cancer. Just 9 days earlier Mike was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia with Myelodysplasia Related Changes.
Mike loved life! He had this contagious hardy laugh, that made people smile. Mike enjoyed teasing people, which was all in good fun, yet making them feel special. He had a huge generous heart. Mike was always helping family and friends with projects, especially with his electrical craft. He loved to entertain and cook. If it was a quiet breakfast or pan of lasagna for two; grilling or smoking on the Traeger for family members and friends. Mike was most happy hosting and taking care of everyone. He also loved golf, especially with his buddy, Scott. They were fortunate to travel the United States exploring golf courses. Many vacations for Mike and Brenda also revolved around golf course availability. Life was complete for him, with the companionship of man’s best friend…the dog.
A big gentle teddy bear, Mike always put others needs first before his own. He wanted everyone to have a good time with plenty to eat and drink. Now his family and friends are left to carry on Mike’s legacy!
Funds from Mike's Memorial will go to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
