Michael Strausbaugh, age 56 of Clyde, the man who devoted his life to his family and loved them so deeply, took his final breath on Tuesday October 12, 2021, at the Cleveland Clinic surrounded by his wife and children. Born October 14, 1964, in Sandusky the son of Dallas Strausbaugh and Patti Wott (Moyer).
Our husband, father, papa, and friend will be remembered most for the never-ending love, support, life advice he always gave, and the party that followed him wherever he went.
A 1983 graduate of Clyde High School married his beautiful wife on June 25, 1983, and proudly served in the United States Army for 4 years.
Mike enjoyed watching Notre Dame football and Detroit Tigers baseball, but most importantly supporting and causing trouble with his 3 “do no wrong” grandchildren. He worked tirelessly to make sure his children could have a life that outshined his. His grandchildren were the luckiest because they had the best papa in the world, he made sure that they knew they were everything to him with constant “I was just missing you” calls while he was working.
The man, the myth, the legend, will forever be in our hearts and we will honor his name by continuing to live a life of focusing on the little things and being “papa tough.”
