Michael Alan Speicher, age 67, of Galesburg, Michigan, passed away peacefully on Saturday, December 8, 2018, after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. Mike was born on January 18, 1951 in Sturgis, Michigan, the son of Milton Robert “Bob” and Billie Yvonne (Beckwith) Speicher. He lived most of his life in Sturgis – enjoying his childhood at the family cabin on Crotch Lake, attending Hold Angels Catholic School and graduating from Sturgis High School with the Class of 1969. On July 11, 2003, he married Cindy Blanchard. They moved to Galesburg, Michigan in 2011. Mike served the last three decades of his career in the water treatment industry – serving with Culligan Water Treatment for nearly 20 years and most recently as Regional Sales Manager at Water-right, Inc. in Appleton, Wisconsin. Mike was a man of strong faith, believing in the power and strength of Jesus Christ’s love. He was devoted to his family and cherished their time together, most of all with his beloved grandchildren.  Mike’s kindness and compassion will be missed by all – he was always willing to help others, never one to decline those in need. He was a friend to all. Mike leaves to cherish his memory, his wife, Cindy, daughters Lisa (Steve) Swihart of Lansing, MI; Sarah Mildenberg of Centreville, MI; Emily (Sean) Henry of Sparta, MI; and step-son, Jason Hilton of Kalamazoo, MI; his grandchildren, Elle Bowman, William and Jackson Swihart and Frances and Oliver Mildenberg; his mother and father-in-law, Jim and Dee Lane; his siblings, Patti (Stephen) Stark; Debbie (Herb) Williams; and Charles Speicher, as well as several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents and a step-son, Brandon Hilton.
