Michael A. Beroske

Michael A. Beroske, age 61, of Lyons passed away peacefully on June 17, 2019, at Heartland - Hospice in Sylvania, Ohio. He was born to Richard and Nancy (Pohlman) Beroske on December 27, 1957. He attended St. John Jesuit High School.  Mike worked alongside his father, uncle, brothers and cousins at Beroske’s Farm and Greenhouse until he retired in 2008.  

He married the love of his life, Barbara (Dorsey) Keefer in 1995.  Together they enjoyed traveling and weekly dinners out with their friends.  In 2012 Mike and Barb purchased a beautiful home in Surprise, Arizona, where they enjoyed their early retirement years being close to family.  In 2017 they moved back to Northwest Ohio to spend more time with their grandchildren. 

Mike enjoyed going to the casino, playing video poker and watching sports on TV.  Mike had a keen sense of humor, and came up with the best one-liners when you least expected it. 

Mike is survived by his loving wife of 23 years, Barbara Beroske, children Michael (Marcie) Beroske Jr., Chelsea (Jimmy Choo) Beroske, Todd (Marcy) Keefer, and Doug (Stacy Bell) Keefer.  9 Grandchildren and 8 Great Grandchildren and furry companion Annie.  He is also survived by his mother Nancy, siblings Richard Jr. (Cheryl), Thomas (Joyce), Theodore, and Kathryn (Terrence) Wray.  He is preceded in death by his Father Richard Beroske Sr. and Uncle Ronald Beroske. 

Visitation will be at Weigel Funeral Home, 204 Chestnut Street, Swanton, Ohio 43558, on Friday, June 21st from 4:00-7:00 p.m., with a family visitation from 3:00-4:00 pm.  Memorial Services will be held immediately following at 7:00 p.m.

In Lieu of Flowers, contributions can be made to Hospice of Northwest Ohio or National Multiple Sclerosis Society. 

A full moon sparked many adventures throughout his life; Mike took his final adventure on the very night of a full moon!

Sad how the internet provides answers to some of our questions. Just today I found out of Mike's passing. I knew Mike from grade school through high school. I always saw him as quietly happy and someone who displayed humility. I never really got to know him well, but the times we did speak, he would say little but he answered with conviction. I do recall him telling me about the family business. It was good to hear that he returned to NW Ohio to be with his direct family prior to passing on. Thank you Mike for being with us.
