Michael Anthony Black, age 68, passed away November 9, 2021. He was preceded in death by his parents Harold A. Black and Kathleen R. Black; brother, John F. Black; and sister, Nancy M. Henriksson. He is survived by his siblings Thomas E. Black and Barbara A. Black; children Matthew A. Black and Heather Waldrep; and two granddaughters.

Throughout his life, Mike enjoyed learning and traveling, and was particularly fascinated by other cultures. He had friends all over the globe. As the eldest of his siblings, he was a pillar in the family and was always willing to lend a hand, give advice, or play a spirited game of euchre. In recent years, he had gone from being an engineer in Michigan to a retired "beach bum" in the Dominican Republic. He is greatly missed by all who knew him.

A Celebration of Life will be held 3 p.m. Saturday, November 27, 2021 at Cook Memorial Chapel, 4235 Prairie St. SW, Grandville, MI 49418, with visitation one hour prior to the service. The family welcomes memories and messages in their guest book online at
