Michael Jerry Cronk passed away tragically in his Westland, Michigan home on April 17, 2012 at the age of 58.

Predeceased by his beloved parents John and Lillian Cronk as well as his two older brothers, Gary and Jack Cronk.

Michael is survived by his nephews Jon & Jeff Cronk and his niece Rachel Cronk as well as his only great-nephew Noah.

Michael was a passionate Detroit Tiger Baseball fan. He usually held season tickets and loved to attend games with family, friends and co-workers. He had an extensive sports memorabilia collection that he was very proud of. The collection filled his home and it was amazing to see the detailed organization of it.

He worked as a manager in the entertainment industry for many years. He loved his work and the people he worked with. Mike was always happiest when he was working. One of his favorite things to say was "busy people are happy people".... and another was "I will never ask any of my staff to do something that I am not willing to do myself." Needless to say, he was respected and well liked as a manager by all of his various staff members.

"What do you do when the words to encompass a friends life have escaped you? When words have left because you are sad and disheartened. You barrow someone..." Heidi Edelbrock (Livonia, MI)
