Michael L. Bogardus, 69, a native of Bellefontaine, Ohio passed away unexpectedly at his home. He was born in Logan County Ohio March 14, 1952, a son of the late Richard C. and Betty Jean (Lee) Bogardus. He was also preceded in death by a sister, Vanora Patrick and a brother, Steven Bogardus.
Mike is survived by a daughter, Sarah Bogardus; a son, Aaron Norris; a beloved grandson, Fisher Wildenhaus; his dear friend, Rose Bishop; brothers, James (Lindy) Bogardus and Michael Patrick and three beautiful nieces.
Mike had lived in three countries before he was 30. He retired from HBD Thermoid following thirty two years of service. He loved music, fishing, nit picking, small grumpy dogs, nature and playing pool, belonging to pool leagues in both Indian Lake and Wapakoneta. Mike was the patriarch of his family. His crass jokes, foul mouth and unwaivering love and support will be sorely missed by those that loved and knew him.
A celebration of life service will be held from 2 to 6 p.m. Monday, June 14, 2021 at the Camp Myeerah Nature Preserve Lodge in Bellefontaine.
The staff of the Eichholtz Daring & Sanford Funeral Home & Cremation Center in Bellefontaine is honored to serve the Bogardus family.
