Michael Conrad Dumler

January 28, 1953December 22, 2020

Michael Conrad Dumler was born in Greeley Co, on January 28, 1953, to Victor Dumler and Pauline Foster (Steving). He lived most of his life in Greeley. He moved to Centennial Co in 2014, and most recently (2019) to Firestone Co.

Mike attended schools in Greeley, attending John Evans and Heath Junior Highs. He graduated from Greeley Central High School in 1972. Mike excelled at playing the drums in high school. This skill led him to play in country western bands with his Mom and others.

In fact, his love of playing drums led to him meeting his future wife at a Christmas party in 1973. There he met Barbara Burnett whom he married July 14, 1974. They were married 46 years.

Mike loved to fish and camp. He loved to sit around the camp fire where he was most at peace. He enjoyed working in his workshop making all sorts of things for his family. He also loved the Denver Broncos. Sometimes he would yell at the TV when things weren’t going well, and sometimes he would jump for joy that they were playing great and winning.

Mike worked at a variety of jobs including Wright & McGill, his first job after graduating from high school, Monfort, Hesco Ford Rebuilders, he worked as a painter, and as a building maintenance rep for a variety of apartment complexes thru out Greeley, one of which was Bonell Good Samaritan. Mike retired in 2014.

Mike passed into the arms of Jesus on Dec 22, 2020, at MCR, after suffering a cardiac arrest at home following quadruple heart bypass surgery.

He is survived by his wife, Barbara, his daughter Jennifer Smukler, his son Mike Jr, his son in law Andrew Smukler, and daughter in law Doriann McElroy Dumler, six grandchildren; Nolan, Halle, Isabella, Grayson, Brooklyn, and Parker; and one great grandson, Silas.

He is proceeded in death by his Dad Victor, his Mom Pauline Foster, his sisters

Carolyn Leek and Terri Mitchell, and his brother Jack.

Visitation will be at 12 noon on Tuesday, January 5, 2021, at Stoddard Funeral Home. Burial will be private for the immediate family only at Sunset Memorial Gardens at 1:00, directly followed by a memorial service in Mike's honor at Stoddard.

Mike was a good friend and I enjoyed working with him at Hesco and being a friend of his during those times and afterwards. I wished we could have kept in touch more often. He will be missed!!
