Michael Vrablic Obituary

Michael James Vrablic, age 65 of Grand Haven, passed away peacefully at home on Friday, November 24, 2023, after a brief illness. He was born on June 26, 1958, in Grand Haven, MI, to Michael and Nancy (Walwood) Vrablic. 

Mike graduated from Grand Haven High School, Class of 1976, and began his 47-year career with Herman Miller shortly thereafter. He married his high school sweetheart, Diane Volkema, on September 30, 1978, at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church, and they recently celebrated 45 years of marriage.

Mike and Diane enjoyed traveling to Hawaii several times and always looked forward to their annual trips to Traverse City each fall. Mike enjoyed shopping, cooking, and spending time with his grandkids. He also liked to keep his garden in good shape and enjoyed the outdoors while camping.

Mike is survived by his wife, Diane; and their three boys: Mitchell (Lena) Vrablic, Cameron Vrablic, and Christian Vrablic, all of Grand Haven; his two grandchildren, Luke and Keira; five siblings: Mark (Sandy) Vrablic, Greg Vrablic,  Jeanne (Troy) Whipple, Diane (Ron) Wilson, and Brenda (Todd) Holmes; brother-in-law, Paul (Marcia) Volkema; sister-in-law, Janice (Peter) Cook; as well as many nieces, nephews, and cousins. 

He was preceded in death by his parents, Mike and Nancy; and his sister-in-law, Tracy Vrablic.
