Michael Ernest Roshak passed away on July 13, 2019, surrounded by his beloved family. He was preceded in death by his mother, Anna Wisneski. He is survived by his wife of 62 years, Elaine; his son Raymond and his wife JoEllen; two daughters Linda Krober and her husband Michael and Kathy Williams and her husband Mark; three granddaughters, Michelle, Laura and Christine and his great-grandchildren. Mike was very close with his brothers Jim (Priscilla), Joseph (Linda), and John (Cindy) and enjoyed their visits until his last day. In addition to his children and brothers, he is survived by grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and over 20 nieces and nephews.
The most important thing in Mike’s life was his relationship with his God, Jehovah. He spent his life in service to his God, supporting and encouraging hundreds of people spiritually, helping them learn about our wonderful Creator and live a truly satisfying life. Besides being a minister, Mike was also known for being a master autobody repairman and mechanic. The years he spent in this trade gave him the opportunity to make lifelong friends from all walks of life. He also was retired from Nickles Bakery after 30 years.
A memorial service will be held Saturday, July 20 at 2 PM at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 820 Market Street, Yorkville, OH 43971. In lieu of flowers, expressions of sympathy can be made to the family, or donations can be made to the worldwide work online at JW.org.
