Michael Edward Mehringer

August 25, 1964 – October 18, 2023

Spike passed away on October 18, 2023, with his best friend of twenty years by his side. In the days prior to his passing, he was surrounded by family, who filled the room with love and laughter as they shared cherished memories of him.

He was born on August 25, 1964 in Ann Arbor, Michigan to Mary Constance (Keelean) Mehringer and Michael Paul Mehringer. A few years later, he became the very best big brother when his sister Ann was born.

He was kind and loyal, and despite a Parkinson’s diagnosis at the age of 33, he was always optimistic and cheerful and possessed impressive physical strength. He loved playing games, solving puzzles, and coming up with new ways to overcome any challenge. 

He was creative and a very talented artist. He loved movies, music, and anything chocolate. He explored many hobbies and interests and enjoyed learning all he could about things that fascinated him. He was always excited to share those things with everyone around him.

In 2007, he joined his best friend and her five children in Tooele Utah, where he was an important member of the family and gave endless encouragement and unconditional love. A year later, he took on his favorite role when his greatest love, his granddaughter, Gracie was born. She was followed by nine more grandkids, each of whom he adored and was devoted to. Being their Papa was what he was most proud of in life.

Spike is survived by his mom Mary Mehringer; his sister Ann Mehringer; his niece Alyssa Gray and nephew Ian Gray; his best friend Lauren Anderton and her daughters Whitney, Ashley, Amanda, Rebecca and her son Jacob; his grandchildren Gracie, Mason, Isaac, Brock, Silas, Magnolia, Isobel, Eleanor, Willow, and Sawyer; and many other family members and friends who love him and will miss him always. 

He was lovingly greeted in heaven by his dad Mike Mehringer.

Spike’s family will celebrate his life privately in the coming days, and though their hearts are broken, they will honor his memory every day by taking time to laugh, have fun, and enjoy being together.
