BREMEN — Michael David Weatherby, 44, died unexpectedly Sunday morning, Feb. 24, 2013, at Bremen Community Hospital.

He was born May 16, 1968, in Alma, Mich., to Roland Lewis and Dorothy Jean (French) Weatherby Jr.

He is survived by his parents; three daughters, Kendra Leann Fox of Big Rapids, Mich., Kylee Rachael Weatherby of Bremen and Cassie Weatherby of Alma, Mich.; a son, Kaylob M. Dowsett of Bremen; and a sister, Renee Frost of Goshen.

He had lived in Goshen and Boise, Idaho, before settling in Bremen the last three years.

Mike was an expert mason and well-known for being dedicated and detailed in his work. He was an accomplished “shade-tree” mechanic who thoroughly enjoyed working on automobiles. Mike enjoyed many outdoor activities including fresh-water fishing and snowmobiling. His outgoing and warm personality made everyone around him feel at ease and accepted.
