Michael E. Mortenson, age 63, died on Sunday, May 13, 2018, surrounded by his family.
He was born in Minneapolis, MN on January 20, 1955, to the late Edward and Dorothy (Karis) Mortenson.

Michael was employed with the City of Kenosha as a Heavy Equipment Operator until his retirement in 2011.
Throughout his life, Michael was a car enthusiast, attending shows and swap meets along with fixing not only cars but bikes too. He was a handy man and the answer man. He was also a history buff and enjoyed antiquing. He loved watching his kids and grandkids play sports-cheering them on. The grandchildren were his world.
He will be forever missed and remembered by his children, Michael J. (fiancée Erica Ruffolo) Mortenson, Adam J. (Jennifer) Mortenson and Ellyn E.
