Michael Warran Wyckoff
Obituary: Michael (Mike) Warren Wyckoff, 71, of Mesick passed away Sunday, November 5, 2017 at the Munson Hospice House surrounded by his loving family. Mike was born Wednesday, July 3, 1946 to Warren F. and Janet R. (Drake) Wyckoff in Traverse City, MI. He attended Traverse City High School and after high school enlisted in the United States Navy. After his enlistment Michael returned to the Traverse City area where he worked for Michigan Bell. He later started his own contracting business, Michael Wyckoff Builders, where he specialized in remodels and garages. Mike enjoyed tinkering and fixing things whether it be a lamp or other household item. He loved to fish and spend time in the Upper Peninsula driving every back road he could find looking for out-of-the-way places. His faith was important to him and he had recently become a lay minister with the Mesick United Methodist Church and was looking forward to leading bible studies. Mike is survived by his sister Kathy (Jim) Sterling of Northport, brother, Jon (Sue) Wyckoff of Traverse City, nieces Tara (Kevin) Ward and Becky (Chris) Heilerman, nephews Josh Rutila and Ben Wyckoff, great nieces Kate Ward, Leeah Ward, Hannah Ward, Chloe Heileman and great nephew Connor Heileman. He was preceded in death by his parents. Private family services will be held at a later date.
