Michael Kachinski, Jr.

November 20, 1956 ~ May 29, 2020 (age 63)


MICHAEL KACHINSKI, JR. age 63 beloved husband of Elise, dear father of Michael III, Anthony and Anne Marie Kachinski.  Brother of William Kachinski and the late Deborah Yale, son of the late Michael, Sr. & Willamae Kachinski.  Memorial services will be announced at a later date. Born in Cleveland, OH on November 20th, 1956 Passed away in Valley City, OH on May 29th, 2020 Mike had the most generous and kind heart, he was always compassionate and down to earth.  One of the best memories we can all share is his deep, infectious belly laugh. He loved his family deeply, especially his three children, and was so proud of each one of them. He frequently reminisced about the good times the family had together, laughing & joking around, and he deeply cherished those memories. Mike was a huge fan the Cleveland Browns, the Ohio State Buckeyes & the Cleveland Indians.  He loved to watch the Indy 500, attending the race for 25+ years. Also a big fan of classic rock, he attended many concerts and he was proud of his ticket stub collection from past events. Later in his life, he developed a love of cooking, and became famous for his Jambayala & Chili recipes.  A perfect day would be to relax next to the smoker for the afternoon and smoke chicken, ribs and smokies. He loved being outside, the ocean, hiking, watching the birds, meteor showers and stargazing.  Remember the goodness he brought into our lives and let’s smile when we think of him, he would want us to pass that smile onto someone else.  Please do not send flowers, instead please plant a tree in Michael's memory or make a contribution to your favorite charity.  

You can shed tears that he is gone

Or you can smile because he has lived

You can close your eyes and pray that he'll come back 

Or you can open your heart and see all that he has left

Your heart can be empty because you can't see him

Or it can be full of all the love you shared.

You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday

Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday

You can remember him only that he is gone

Or you can cherish his memory and let it live on

You can cry and close your mind

Be empty and turn your back

Or you can do what he'd want
