BRISTOL, Ind. — Michael Edgar Mayse, 68, of Bristol, Ind., died at 1:28 p.m. Monday, May 19, after an extended illness, at the Center for Hospice Care, Elkhart Ind. Michael was born Jan. 25, 1946, in Gary, Ind. His parents were James and Ethel (Spory) Mayse.
Michael married Sue Frost on June 29, 2006, at Bonneyville Mill Park, Bristol Ind.
Michael called himself a Pennsylvania Hillbilly, but he was far from that. He was a man of stature, class and humor. During his long, final battle with illness he still took the time to thank each doctor, nurse and caregiver with a handshake and smile. He was a friend, mentor and hero to many.
Surviving are his wife, Sue Frost Mayse, of Bristol, Ind.; daughter, Tiffany Mayse, of Somerset, Pa.; stepdaughter, Ashley Frost (Mark) Nugent, of Bristol, Ind.; grandson, Eli Joshua Nugent, of Bristol, Ind.; brother, Charlie (Judy) Mayse, of Boswell, Pa.; stepmother, Kris Mayse of Boswell, Pa.; and father and mother-in-law, Ron and Sharon Gray, of Lake Ann.
Memorial contributions may be given to Premier Arts, 410 S. Main St., Elkhart, IN 46516.
