OBITUARY

Steven Ray Michalk

January 23, 1959March 21, 2021

Steven (Steve) Ray Michalk passed away surrounded by his wife and children on March 21, 2021, after suffering a brain bleed. Steve was born January 23rd, 1959 to Rodney and Patsy Michalk in Austin, Texas. He made his home with his wife Diana, in Austin, Texas.

Steve met Diana while they were both working at Southwestern Bell in 1978. From the day he laid eyes on her Steve was captivated. He and Diana were married for 41 years and raised three children together. Steve continued to work at Southwestern Bell, now AT&T, for 41 years, retiring in 2020. The family’s fondest memories include camping and fishing trips, Disney World vacations, a month-long road trip through the west coast, and weekends spent together grilling in the backyard. He was a lifelong fan of the Texas Longhorns and the Dallas Cowboys, and more recently NASCAR.

Steve was a dedicated father and grandfather, remembered for his wholehearted commitment to family, and his mischievously fun nature. His wife, children, and grandchildren knew there was nothing Steve couldn’t fix. He was happiest when he was helping them.

He is lovingly remembered by his wife Diana, their three children, Melissa (Jonathan) Slayton, Amy (Perry) Nutt, and Brian (Catherine), and seven grandchildren, Theodore, Samuel, Avery, Margo, Lewis, Jacob, and Nathaniel. He will also be remembered fondly by his parents Rodney and Patsy, sister Lisa (Dale) Bohm, numerous nephews and nieces, great nephews and great-nieces. Steve joins his older brother Sam in heaven.

A good class mate, team mate and all around good guy. Steve had his own style and way of living but got along with everyone. The thing I remember the most is at every sporting event no one could pronounce his last name. He would just just smiled.
Kind man with a heart of a lion.
Thoughts and prayers to his family.
We'll all meet again.

Steve will be missed, it seems he always set his own course and never regretted the choices he made. he was always fun and charismatic and it was always good to see him . “We can never forget such a wonderful person; we all know that we should be very happy for all the good times we shared at his side. Good trip our friend; the Lord will rest your soul”
