On Tuesday, Jan. 28, 2020, Mike Hanthorn, loving husband and father of three, passed away at age 76. 

Mike was born on March 16, 1943 in Lima, Ohio, to Roy and Helen Hanthorn. 

On June 5, 1966, Mike married Mary Ann Hanthorn and they raised one son, Lance, and two daughters, Lisa and Lacy. He was blessed with six grandchildren, Megan, Morgan, Dakota, Bryce, Addison and Gracie; and two great-grandchildren Anna Marie and Elliott.

Mikey was one of a kind, with quick wit and a love for everyone he met. You knew you were one of his favorites if he was giving you a hard time. Some of the best times for Mike were spent on lake shores, fishing, hunting and always with family and friends. Dad always liked to show off his tricks; his favorite one, especially with children, was having them pull his ear and he would click out his front tooth. Even in his last days, that was his favorite trick to show the doctors and nurses. 

Mike was preceded in death by his father, Roy; his mother, Helen; and his daughter, Brenda Michelle. He is survived by his wife, Mary Ann, and their three children, Lance, Lisa (Andi) and Lacy (Tom) of Livingston; and his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He is also survived by his brothers, Glen and Bob (Sue); many nieces, nephews, cousins; and his main side-kick, Oscar. 

A celebration of life will be announced at a later date.
