Michael Andrew Burge

May 18, 1985 — July 12, 2019

Michael Andrew Burge, age 34, parted from our lives all too soon at his home in West Branch on Friday, July 12, 2019. He was born in West Branch on May 18, 1985 to Adrian Burge and Sherri Brown. Michael was a lifelong resident of West Branch with the exception of his time in the military.

After graduating from Ogemaw Heights High School in 2005, Mike decided to join the Army. He wanted to protect our country. During this time, he was deployed twice, once to Iraq and once to Afghanistan.

Mike was a wannabe comedian and he would always find a way to spread humor and put a smile on people’s faces. He was always willing to lend a helping hand. Mike loved the simple, northern country life. His favorite pastime was trail riding, camping and anything outdoors. Mike enjoyed spending time with his family and friends, but his son, Ashton, was the apple of his eye.

Michael is survived by his mother, Sherri Brown; father, Adrian Burge; sisters, Jessica Norman and Chandra Weideman. He is also survived by his son, Ashton Michael Burge; his significant other, Jennifer Griffor and her children, Cole, Jenna and Emmalynn; his grandparents, Gloria Daley, Muriel and Albert Burge; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.

Michael’s Memorial Service with Veteran Honors will be held at the Faith Alive Church, 2945 Hansen Rd., West Branch on Monday, July 22, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. with visitation starting at 10:00 a.m. Pastor Jim Beck will officiate.
