Obituary for Michael William Wynn

Michael William Wynn of Walled Lake was born October 8, 1963 in Newport, Rhode Island to Ralph Haines and Beverly Marie (nee: Storck) Wynn. He died July 11, 2020 at the age of 56.

Mr. Wynn is the beloved husband of 35 years to Lori. Loving father of Sarah Elizabeth (Drew) Matzke and Amanda Margaret Wynn. Papa to Riley Haines Wynn. He is survived by his mother Beverly (the late Ralph) Wynn and his sister Kathleen (Eric) Paul. He is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, extended family members and friends.

Mike attended Walled Lake Western High School where he played football and, more importantly, where he met the love of his life, Lori. The two were married in 1985 and had two daughters, Sarah and Amanda.

Mike was an avid outdoorsman, even from a young age. Growing up in Florida, he would often catch reptiles and bring them home to show his mom. Once he moved to Michigan with his family, he spent countless hours at Hawk Lake fishing, swimming, skating, and snowmobiling. He loved to hunt and fish and went on an annual trip to northern Michigan with his best friend Dan each October. Mike spent many summers on Leelanau Peninsula. He especially enjoyed lighting fireworks on the beach in the evenings and spending time on the water – he even helped his godson Chance catch his first fish!

Being a papa to, and spending time with, his grandson Riley brought him great joy. Riley and Mike enjoyed studying trains, reading stories, and being silly together.

Always an entertainer, he was multi-talented - able to sing, play the bass, the guitar, and loved the high notes of a good harmony. He was in a band for years with Dan, playing shows at local bars. A great storyteller, he could make you laugh until you cried. Once he got started telling stories, there was often no stopping him.

Please join us on August 7th to celebrate Mike’s life. Come share some stories and laughs at Hawk Lake from 4:00 – 8:00 with a lantern release (weather permitting) taking place at 8:00 pm. Light refreshments will be served.

In lieu of flowers donations to Fishtown Preservation in Leelenau, MI appreciated.
