Michael Andrew Andereck passed away on February 3, 2019. Michael was such a smart-ass that at least one friend questioned if this was a terrible joke. He was kind-hearted and loyal with a wicked sense of humor. Halloween was his favorite holiday – and his birthday – he was born for haunted houses and costumes and scaring kids and neighbors alike. He enjoyed dumping cousins in the snow, not getting his picture taken, and practical jokes. Every family Christmas tree must include real pine cones – why would we have a pine tree with no cones?! He was a backward-walking monk at the Renaissance Festival; an avid Trekkie; a reasonable cook but excellent salsa maker. An talented photographer, he will live on in the countless photos he took and shared at any gift giving occasion. A man who loved cats but had little tolerance for dogs. Michael loved to read and encouraged reading in everyone around him. He did amazing work in support of the Burning Through Pages charity. He is survived by countless friends and family who loved him dearly and will miss him very much.
