PrekupecPREKUPEC, Michael
Feb. 21, 1959 – Aug. 31, 2014

In memory of a life so beautifully lived, of a heart so deeply loved. With the heaviest of hearts we announce that after a long and courageous fight against cancer our dear Mike passed away peacefully with his loving family by his side. Devoted husband and soulmate to Cathy (nee Kriz) and proudest father to the joys of his life Greg and wife Elizabeth and Matt and wife Sowmya. Beloved son of Anna and Marijan Prekupec, son-in-law of Joe Kriz and the late Claire, brother of Kathy Pelzek and husband Dean and brother-in-law of Paul Kriz and wife Dani. Special uncle to Danielle, Amanda, Justin and Jordan. We were blessed to have had Mike in our lives for 55 years. Although he will be so very deeply missed, treasured memories will keep Mike alive forever in our hearts. The world was a better, kinder, gentler more loving place because of him. Mike was a long-time member of CAW Local 200. He retired from Ford last year after 37 years of dedicated service. He was also a member of the Knights of Columbus. Arrangements have been entrusted to WINDSOR CHAPEL FUNERAL HOME (Main Chapel) 1700 Tecumseh Rd. East. Family and friends are invited to gather at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church (4401 Mt. Royal Dr. at Cousineau Rd.) in Windsor on Saturday September 6, 2014 from 10:00a.m. until time of Memorial Mass at 11:00a.m. with Father Mike Parent officiating.
