Obituary for Michael J. Marlo

Michael Joseph Marlo November 27,1947 – January 31, 2020:

Survived by his wife Joyce, daughter Michele, son Michael and his wife Rebecca, daughter Stephanie, son AJ and his wife Taren, daughter Kelly, step-daughter Amy, step-son Tom and grandchildren Monika, Vanessa, Gavin, Braydon, and Ronan, and Sister Margaret and husband Gary and niece Kim and husband Mike. Mike also recently lost his beloved dog Boomer and we are sure he is romping joyfully with him right now!

Mike was an avid gardener, and he and his wife Joyce enjoyed landscaping and growing their own vegetables and herbs. He loved to golf and could often be found hitting the local courses after his recent retirement. He and his wife had a weekly dinner and movie date and they traveled as much as they could, especially to visit family out of state. Some of his favorite things included: poker, reading, his morning grapefruit and Starbucks with a 10 count of sugar! He loved SPORTS of any kind and regularly bantered about the games with his sons Michael and AJ. He enjoyed the water and lived on the lake. For many years you could find him with family and friends wakeboarding, kayaking or on his pontoon boat. He recently took up pie baking with his son AJ and often used fresh ingredients from his garden. He and his daughter Michele were very active politically and he helped canvas for the Democratic Party locally. He valued our duty to vote and asked that people seek out the truth with research and reliable sources. He financially helped his daughter Michele attend and graduate Summa Cum Laude from The Center For Creative Study and was overjoyed when his youngest daughter Kelly graduated Madonna University. He was so proud of his daughter Stephanie for her work as a bee keeper and recently attended his granddaughter Vanessa’s graduation from the University of North Texas as Magna Cum Laude.

He was an accomplished business man and owned an engineering firm once ranked “437th Fastest Growing Businesses in America.” His oldest son, Michael, followed in his engineering footsteps to become a lead electrical engineering technician.

Mike loved his job and was very good at it. He retired 3 times, because he just couldn’t stand to not be working! He consulted in his later years and even joined a Mentorship Program for Small Business Startups. His intelligence, wit and ability to master any situation was epic.

His unexpected death has caused a deep sorrow and pain in our hearts. His life was cut far too short. Our only solace is that he did not suffer long. And for the record, he did not lose his battle with cancer. When he died, the cancer died, so technically it was a tie!

A memorial visitation will take place at Lynch & Sons Funeral Directors, 39 W. Burdick, Oxford on Tuesday, February 4, 2020 from 5-7 PM with a memorial service beginning at 7 PM.

Memorials may be made to The Michigan Humane Society, the American Cancer Society, or the Democratic National Committee.
