Michael Thomas Engel, of Stanchfield, formerly of St. Louis Park, passed away on Thursday, November 28, 2013 at his home. He was 64 years old.
Michael was born on October 17, 1949 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The only child of Claire Henry and Joyce (Holzer) Engel, he grew up in St. Louis Park and attended elementary and High School. Michael was united in marriage to Laurie Dahlberg. Mike and Laurie moved to their home on Rush Lake in 2007. After Laurie’s death in 2010, Mike and his beloved beagle Mandy continued to live at home on the lake until his death.
Mike loved the outdoors and fishing. He enjoyed living so close to Rush Lake and being able to fish almost daily, summer and winter. Mike also enjoyed playing cards, especially five card stud with his many friends at Running Aces. He was a dear friend to many and will be missed.
Michael is preceded in death by his parents and wife Laurie.
He is survived by his step-son, David Christensen and his children Corey and Marissa; special friends Tony and Melinda Husnick and their children Tj and Stormy; as well as many other friends
