Michael "Mike" Menhart Obituary

Michael “Mike” Menhart, age 71, entered into Eternal Life on January 18, 2023. He was the beloved husband of Cinderella Menhart for 42 years; father of the Chris (deceased) and Mike Jr. (Erin), Papa of Christopher, Orla and Catty; son of Paul and Marie (deceased); brother of Barbara Buda (Bob, deceased), Karen (Dave) and Paul; brother-in-law of Shirley Trusso (Rick); Anna Sickles (deceased, Gary), and Harry Souris; caring uncle to many nieces and nephews, and godfather as well; blessed friend of the Trussos, Shleprs and countless others. Special thanks to Katie Salzman, Michael’s devoted caregiver of eleven years, and Harry Souris, who has been more than a brother-in-law. Special thanks to Hospice of the Western Reserve and to his nurse, Tina.

Michael was a proud United States Marine Veteran. Although disabled in 1968, he led a full and abundant life. He was a lifetime member of the Paralyzed Veterans of America and the Disabled American Veterans where he was employed as a National Service Officer. He was awarded the Outstanding Veteran of the Year 1990 by the State of Ohio. He served the City of Macedonia as a Councilman and a Civil Service Commissioner.

Michael was an avid outdoorsman and enjoyed hunting, fishing, and gardening; he was a nationally-ranked disabled bass fisherman twice. His favorite pastime was playing poker with family members and friends, and he was a National One Pocket Billiard champion. 

Michael was a blessed member of Gloria Dei Lutheran Church, 2113 Ravena Road, Hudson, OH, where a Celebration of Life ceremony will be held on Saturday, January 28, 2023 at 3:00 PM, Officiated by Reverend Doctor Eric Tritten.
