SHACH, Michael, age 65, formerly of Wellington, FL passed away July 4, 2020. Michael was born in Baltimore, Maryland. He was the son of Jerry and Anita Shach. He moved to Florida in 1975. Shortly after, he met Cecelia and her daughter Michelle. They wed October 6, 1979 and started a family of their own. Several years later arrived daughter Nicole and Son Justin. Michael worked as a salesman in the car business for most of his life. He was tough as nails with a heart of gold. He was a friend and mentor to so many. Michael left the car business in 2003. Until recently, he worked in sales for his son-in-law’s family metal building business. He once loved running marathons, seeing friends at CrossFit, and loved the game of golf. He always enjoyed playing with his daughter, Nicole. Michael enjoyed helping his wife Cecelia, with her passion for collecting food for “Kibblez of Love”, a non-profit organization dedicated to the well being of family pets. It provided food for pets to people in financial distress. Michael loved an ice cold beer and enjoyed a good cigar. He was a very proud American. He loved his wife and his children and was an adoring Papa. Whether it was throwing a baseball, fishing, cooking burgers with his grandchildren they nicknamed “cheesy weezey’s”, bike riding, messing around in the garage, or just a visit, spending time with his grandchildren made his heart smile. Michael was surrounded by his family at the time of his passing. He will be missed by all and was loved by so many. He is survived by his wife of 40 years Cecelia; stepdaughter Michelle Barfield (Troy); daughter Nicole Strompf (Ian); son Justin Shach (Jen); sister Lisa Shach; niece Amber Johnson and his 5 beautiful grandchildren, Jaiden and Jase Barfield , Aiden and Austin Strompf, and Sage Shach.
