January 14, 1951 - December 27, 2021
David Michael “Mike” Willett, 70, of Essexville, our generous, occasionally flirtatious, and sometimes stubborn brother, uncle, and friend was born into eternal life on Monday, December 27, 2021 at his home. Mike was born in Bay City on January 14, 1951, the son of the late Shirlie and Mary Jane (Krause) Willett. He was a 1970 graduate of Garber High School and went on to serve in the U.S. Navy during Vietnam. Upon returning home, Mike was a firefighter at the former Tri-City Airport (now MBS International Airport) for many years. Always one to appreciate Michigan’s great outdoors, Mike had a love for boats, especially Great Lakes freighters. Mike also enjoyed photography and riding his four-wheeler. An all-around good guy, Mike will forever be remembered for his jokes and light-hearted humor. Mike lived life his way and left a lasting impact on all who knew him. Mike is survived by his siblings, Joseph (Audrey) Willett, Connie Wisniewski, Robert (Kathy) Willett, and Dennis (Pam) Willett, along with many nieces, nephews, and their families. In addition to his parents, Mike was preceded in death by his brother-in-law, Edward Wisniewski, and his beloved dog, Charlie. Mike’s family will be present to receive visitors on Thursday, December 30, 2021 from 4:00 PM until Mike’s 7:00 PM Funeral Ceremony at Skorupski Family Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 821 N. Pine Rd., between Ridge & Center. Fr. Dale Orlik will officiate with the Rite of Committal to be held privately in St. Patrick Cemetery. Memorial contributions may be directed to Americans Hospice Care. The entire family wishes to extend a heartfelt thanks to Mike’s neighbor, Nancy McCartney, for her help and support, along with Sheree, Nancy, Evie, and Lindi at AHHC for their compassionate care. Expressions of sympathy may be shared with the family online at www.skorupskis.com.
