Mike passed away very early Friday morning April 10, 2020 from an extremely aggressive but thankfully short battle with Advanced Stage IV Metastatic Melanoma. He was holding his wife Becky’s hand and surrounded by love. Mike had successfully battled melanoma twice over 20 yrs ago but unfortunately this time, it was found to be too much and too far gone. Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, we are unable to honor Mike at this time. The family will have a celebration of Mike’s life at a later date.

Mike was born on July 8, 1970 to Ron and Corrie Imrisek. He grew up along with his brother Jason and his parents, in Orland Park. Even from very early on, everyone knew Mike was going to be a very smart and hard-working man. As a young boy, he had several paper-routes, mowed lawns and shovelled snow around the neighborhood. Mike did great in school but also participated in several activities like with Andrew HS paper/yearbook, announcing baseball games, and doing the behind-the-scenes statistics for the all of the baseball teams. Mike graduated in the top 3 of his class at Andrew High School with honors. He went to St. Louis University and received a Bachelors of Science in Electrical Engineering. This career would serve Mike well to be able to use his analytical mind within the telecommunications field.

Mike met his love Becky through Match.com. Everyone knew Mike had fallen hard after he let Becky decorate his pretty barren townhouse and change his whole wardrobe. Becky got Mike to loosen up/be more social while Mike tried to teach Becky to be more organized and frugal. They were a strong team and were able to work through the passing of Becky’s dad, Mike’s CMT issues and Becky’s cancer/health issues. They were blessed with a beautiful son Nathan which brightened and changed their love story for the better. Mike was a fantastic, loving father and doted on Nathan. Mike’s philosophy always was for Nathan to remember what he could do with Nathan, not what he couldn’t do. He shared his love of fixing things, fishing, Boy Scouts, sports and did whatever Nathan wanted. Mike was a very proud hockey dad and loved helping any way he could. Mike was legendary around the rink for his bright neon-orange hat twirling for every goal the team had, and his never-ending ability to provide anything you would ever possible need like tape, scissors, extra jerseys, stockings, tools, etc.

Mike prided himself on being quite the Renaissance man. He made his own soy candles, sewed/fixed Nathan’s hockey stuff and could fix just about anything. Because he was the master fix-it guy, he had a massive tool collection in which he put to great use. Whatever he didn’t know, he would troubleshoot and research to teach himself how. There wasn’t much he couldn’t do, fix, or “MacGyver” his way through it. Mike was always willing to help out his family, friends, neighbors and even strangers.

Mike will forever be remembered for his generosity, positive nature and his love for Becky & Nathan. In Mike’s memory, the family has set up an account to assist with Nathan’s education and future expenses. Contributions can be made through the Zelle app in care of becky.imrisek@yahoo.com. Becky, Nathan, and the whole Imrisek family appreciate your prayers, thoughts and love during this difficult time.
