Michael R. Gillette age 60 of Cedar Springs passed away peacefully in his sleep Thursday, July 9, 2020. Mike was born September 9, 1959 in Grand Rapids, MI the son of Roger and Arlene (Morris) Gillette. Mike attended Cedar Springs High School where he enjoyed wrestling and playing football. He was involved in the FFA and was proud to serve as president his senior year. Mike was humble, thoughtful and a gentle soul. He was a quiet man, but if you got him talking about something he enjoyed, he loved to share that knowledge with others. Mike enjoyed playing his guitar, music, and cooking from his Grandma Jessie’s cookbook. He enjoyed being outdoors and spending time at John Deere Camp. Mike liked antiques, history, gardening, and classic cars. He loved morning coffee with his wife and spending time with his family. He is survived by his wife of 36 years, Lisa; daughters, Jessie (Nic) Pemberton and Erin (Matt) Smith; grandchildren, Gianna, Bennett and Kenzie; brothers, Roger “Rip” (Kenda) Gillette, and Jeff Gillette; many nieces and nephews. A memorial service will be held at a later date. Memorial contributions may be made to Cedar Springs Future Farmers of America, 204 E. Muskegon Cedar Springs, MI 49319.
