Michael Ratcliff


Michael Ratcliff, beloved husband, father, and friend, passed away peacefully on July 15, 2023, at the age of 66 in Mt. Morris, MI. His warm presence and vibrant spirit will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him.

Michael was born on December 17, 1956, in Flint, Michigan to Harvey and Trula (Sisk) Ratcliff. It was evident that Michael possessed a natural talent for cooking and grilling. He would often spend summers hosting cookouts and barbecuing for his family and friends, creating unforgettable memories filled with laughter and delicious food. Countless evenings were shared around the dinner table as he lovingly prepared meals for his loved ones.  His quick wit and sense of humor always brought laughter and joy to these evenings.  Michael also enjoyed planting and growing a vegetable garden every year.  He cherished time spent with his grandchildren, whom brought him so much joy.

Michael worked as a truck driver and enjoyed making his way through his many routes throughout his career.

Michael is survived by his devoted wife Wendy.  He will also be deeply missed by his daughter Jordan Stern, her loving husband Eddie Stern, and his beloved grandchildren Boden and Fisher Stern. Michael is also survived by his faithful companion, Izzy.

In addition to his immediate family members, Michael leaves behind step-children Nathan (Cassie) Moreau and their children: Charlie and Paige, Ryan (Kaitlin) Moreau, and their children Emma and Max. He will also be remembered by his extended family members and dear friends. 

Michael was predeceased by his parents, and his son, Cole Ratcliff whom he missed greatly and has been reunited with now.

A memorial service will be held on a later date to honor the life of this remarkable man. In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations in Michael's memory be made to the families wishes.
