Michael J. Pendergast age 72, of Lima. In great sadness here on earth peacefully arrived in heaven on January 11, 2023. He was born on June 29, 1950 son to the late Michael J. and Faye T. (DuPont) Pendergast, Sr. Mike married the love of his life Cynthia Glick on February 16, 1977.
Cindy & Mike shared vows of everlasting love with their 5 Children: Jimmy Higgins, Melissa (David) Hefner, Christina (Scott) Garee, Michael (Holly) Pendergast, III, Holly (Todd) Lawrence along with 16 grandkids, 18 great grands, their dog Sam, numerous nieces, nephews and others.
Michael shared his childhood with his best friend/brother Stephen (Kitt) Pendergast, baby sister Patsy (Tom) Offenbacher; sisters-in-law Susan Regedanz, Judy (Jeff) Schneider, Lori (Kevin) Young; brothers-in-law: Don Glick, Roger (Judy) Glick Joe (Billie) Glick and beloved late sisters Mikki Morey & Sarah Woods, brothers-in-law: Jim Glick, Craig Glick and Dennis Regedanz greeting his arrival in heaven.
Mike was a hard worker always providing for his family. He was hired into Ford Motor Company on September 9, 1968 retiring a few years after his baby girl “Pig” graduated on July 1, 2001. Although his work on earth is done heaven has gained a very special man who touched the lives of so many with a pure heart of gold. He shared his love so deeply and gave unselfishly, especially to those he loved. He really enjoyed watching all his grandkids sporting events as well as riding many places on his Harley Davidson with his wife.
We will all miss his laughter, jokes, and years of memories until we meet again. His family would like to thank all of those who cared, sent thoughts and prayers as they have truly meant a lot to us.
A celebration of his life will be held 2:00 p.m., Sunday, January 29, 2023 at Ford Motor Company union hall 1750 Bible Road Lima, Ohio. Cousin Mark Gordon will honor our beloved husband, father, papa, brother, uncle and friend. A meal and drinks will be shared.
