Birth: Aug. 9, 1950
Death: Sep. 5, 2004

Michael David Pickering, age 54, of Portage, passed away on Sunday, September 5, 2004. Michael was born on August 9, 1950 to Francis and Hazel Pickering, who preceded him in death. He was born and raised in Northwest Indiana. After high school, Mike enlisted in the Army, serving in Vietnam, before going to work at National Steel in Portage, where he was a millwright. He later met and on August 1, 1975 married Anne. Mike will be greatly missed by his wife Anne and their children: Jason (Lisa) Pickering, Michael Pickering and Michele Pickering all of Portage, and his new granddaughter, Kaitlyn Michele and her sister Bridgette Amanda. Mike also leaves behind his loving sister, Joan (Lonnie) Guess of Lafayette, IN and their blessed family to join his sister Jackie (Owen) who preceded him. Mike will miss the many joys and laughter he shared with his in-laws, Lawrence and Delphine Gallagher of Highland and their family, Drs. Patricia and Gary Becker, Kathleen and Dan Benassi, Mary Beth and John Timko, Alice and John Schulze, Christopher and Susan Gallagher, Shawn and Colleen Gallagher, all his wonderful nieces and nephews; and his many friends and co-workers. Mike was an avid sports fan and car fanatic whose favorite pastime was watching his children's games and attending car shows. Through the miracle of organ donation, Mike was able to create and be a part of many wonderful memories with his family and friends. Therefore, the family requests in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the University of Wisconsin Foundation, P.O. Box 8860, Madison, WI 53708 or to a charity of your choice. Funeral services will be held Wednesday, September 8, 2004 at 10 A.M. at the Burns Funeral Home, 701 E. 7th St., Hobart, IN. Rev. Lonnie Guess officiating. Interment in McCool Cemetery, Portage. Friends are invited to meet with the family at the Burns Funeral Home on Tuesday, 2 to 8 P.M
