Michael James Gephart “Mike” passed away suddenly on February 8, 2021, from a heart attack at the age of 60.
He was a loving father to Jayne and Jack, a wonderful lawn mowing ex-husband to Sara, and a great friend to all that he encountered. To know him was to love him, and he lit up every single room he walked into. Fondly remembered as the “fun one”, Mike was often seen tuning up his motorcycle, boating with his children, and making the most of every day. He loved a strong cup of coffee in the morning and wanted to see every sunrise he could get his hands on. He was the hardest working man in the room and if you needed something done and wanted it done right, Mike was the man to call. He was everyone’s safety blanket, and how lucky we all were to be comforted and cared for by him.
Mike was preceded in death by his mother, Elaine Gephart; his father, Daniel Gephart; and his sister, Patti Gephart. He is survived by his daughter, Jayne; son, Jack; best friend and confidant, Sara; and many cousins, nieces, and nephews.
