Michael Bard died on December 18, 2021 with his wife Leslie, sister-in-law Laura and brother-in-law Mike by his side. He passed peacefully with the voices of his loved ones from all over the last sounds he heard. He lived with cancer for 7 ½ years with his incredible strength. He was so many things; a beloved husband, devoted son, and proud and loving father and grandfather. A retired firefighter/paramedic, he was also a computer whiz, woodworker, motorcycle enthusiast, and someone who could fix pretty much anything. He had a razor sharp wit and a keen mind, and made friendships for life. He leaves behind his wife Leslie, his mother Cheryl Bard, daughter Brooke Drury and son-in-law Wes Drury, grandchildren Dalton and Blake, brother Rick Bard, sister Lynn Kline (Charlie), brother Steve Bard(Dawn), mother-in-law Diane Lahoski, brother-in-law Brian Fowle(Melissa), sister-in-law Laura Wennergren(Mike), brother-in-law Tom Fowle, extended family and close friends. He was predeceased by his father Richard. Michael will be missed more than words can say.
At his request no formal service will be held. Any memorial donations may be made to the cancer charity of your choice.
