Earl "Roger" Michels, 68, of Kingsley, passed away unexpectedly on Oct. 22, 2017. Roger was born on June 4, 1949 in Kingsley to the late Earl and Theresa (Schaffer) Michels.
Roger will forever be remembered as being "crafty." If he could think it, he could build it. He was a avid hunter and enjoyed telling stories and visiting with his many friends. Roger loved his family and especially his grandkids, who affectionately called him "Papa" and "Grand Papa."
Roger is survived by his wife, Nancy (French); sons, Jason (Nichole) and Joseph (Rachel); grandchildren, Ezra, Laney and Connor; and sisters, Linda Michels, Beverly (Carl) Maddox, Elaine Cizek and Marlene Michels.
Roger was preceded in death by his parents; sisters, Nancy Novak and Ruth Saxton; and brothers, Gordon and Robert Michels.
A celebration of Roger's life will take place Nov. 18, 2017 at noon at the St. Mary's of Hanna School. A luncheon will follow.
Arrangements are entrusted to Kalkaska Funeral Home and Cremation Services.
