Obituary

Michael Douglas Mitschele (63), a resident of Asbury Park, passed away in a peaceful sleep on Thursday November 21st, 2019. Michael was born on May 15, 1956 and was raised in Livingston. He attended West Essex High School and was a graduate of the class of 1974. He lived and worked in Roseland for over 25 years, where he ran Baer Concrete, was a long-time member of the Roseland Rotary Club, a founding member of the Roseland First Aid Squad and served on the board of Caldwell College. Michael then made Pine, Colorado his home for many years, and ultimately moved back to NJ, where he enjoyed residing by the ocean in Asbury Park for the past six years.

Michael was a larger-than-life character and will always be remembered for his charismatic personality and generous heart. He made many charitable donations over the years to his favorite foundations and was very active in his various communities. He had many passions including traveling, sailing, fishing, attending concerts, enjoying the mountains and the beach, and being a devoted father and Grampy to his three children and five grandchildren. Michael made an impact in the lives of so many and will be missed beyond measure.

Michael is survived by his daughter and son-in-law, Melissa and Ron Brizzie, his daughter and son-in-law, Dawn and Tory Henry, his son and daughter-in-law, Daniel and Erin Mitschele, and his long time partner, Kelly Bogart. He was Grampy to Sayla Rose, Bryce Matthew, Dakota Michael, Lillian James and Naya June.

He is survived by his parents Herbert J. Jr and Joyce Mitschele, his siblings Clinton Mitschele, Cheryl Eichmann, Louis Mitschele, Patricia Beaumont and Lisa Campbell; predeceased by his sister Mary Evans, brother Herbert J. Mitschele III, and sister, Virginia Mitschele. He is survived by many nieces and nephews, and great nieces and nephews.

To Michael's parents, Herbert J. Jr. and Joyce Mitschele, his siblings, extended family, and longtime partner, Kelly Bogart,

I am saddened to hear about Michael's passing. There are no words to express the loss of a child and sibling. He was my brother's, (Marc), best friend.
