COLORADO — Michael (Mike) Roy Ward, 70, passed peacefully in Colorado at 10:32 MDT Saturday, Sept. 30, 2017. His loving daughter, Cassandra, and loving son, Michael, were by his side.

Michael was born May 18, 1947, in Salem, Ohio. He was preceded by his wife, Ruby Margaret Ward; mother-in-law, Ruby Bates; and father Edwin Ward. He is survived by his dear mother, Muriel L.Ward; and his siblings Alan, Kathy, Nancy, and David. He was further survived by other relatives and friends.

Michael, a proud papa, was survived by his grandchildren, Mercedes, Caylee, Tye and Connor, whom he so dearly loved and adored. Papa would always say… “kiss the kids.”

Michael was retired from his lifetime occupation in finance and nursing care.

He will be sadly missed, but never forgotten by family and friends.

Continue celebrating his life, he will live on through us…

Our daddy-o enjoyed a good dance!
