MICHAEL EUGENE MUSZYNSKI
Michael Eugene Muszynski, 98, of Alpena passed away Monday, April 17, 2017, at MidMichigan Medical Center-Alpena.
Mike was born Aug. 19, 1918, in Krakow Township to the late Felix and Julia (Skierski) Muszynski. On Nov. 7, 1942, he married Anna Misiak. She preceded him in death on July 30, 2007.
Mike with the love of his life, wife Ann, moved from the farms of Posen and married in St. Hyacinth Catholic Church in Detroit, by Bishop Woznicki. He worked at the FH Martin Construction Co. and then went on to drive trucks for Holloway Sand & Gravel in the construction industry. With five children in a two-bedroom house, he built his own in Sterling Heights, taking two years after work to build with the help of his 12-year-old son, Jerry. Just in time for number six, Mike Jr. came along. He drove until about age 62 when he was run over by an oil tanker and forced into retirement. He enjoyed life! Loving whiskey, hunting, fishing, and polka dancing. We the family and friends will sadly miss his stories, playing the fiddle and squeeze box at camp and the stories of almost 100 years.
Surviving are his three children, Ken Muszynski (fiancee Dawn Dobson), Dolores Santana, Michael (Paula) Muszynski, Jr.; 10 grandchildren, Jeff, Lisa, Wendy, Ken Jr. (Nichole), Randy (Terra), Jason (Stacie), Amanda, Sarah (Brandon), Michael J., Jennifer (Todd); 18 great-grandchildren, Darian, Justis, Megan, Tyler, Miquela, Jared, MacKenzie, Sidney, Jase, Andalyn, Abram, Madison, Holly; Anabelle, McKenna, Kody, Danyka, Kaleb, siblings, Verna Klesk, Margaret Suszek, Gladys (Art) Kowalski, Donald Muszynski; several nieces and nephews.
