Michael Lee Weyhmiller was born on November 16, 1950 in Marshfield, WI, to Donald B. "Mike" and Dorothy M. (Rogstad) Weyhmiller. He was raised and received his education in Loyal, graduating from Loyal High School in 1968. After completing his education, he worked at his father's business in Loyal, Mike's Tire. Mick was united in marriage to Janice A. Marcotte on April 26, 1975 at St. Anthony Catholic Church in Loyal. He and his brother, Keith, purchased the business from their dad in the late 1980's. They started Clean Sweep Car Wash in the early 1990's. Mick later became sole owner of the car wash. He retired from Mike's Tire in 2019 but continued to operate Clean Sweep throughout his retirement.
While you could find Mick nearly any time of day at Mike's Tire, he did have many interests outside work. He especially loved spending time with his family and grandchildren (you could often times hear him coaching grandkids sports from the bleacher section), competing in lumberjack competitions in his younger years, cheering on the Green Bay Packers, snowmobiling, fishing, hunting, water skiing, and collecting, restoring and showing vintage snowmobiles . In retirement, he loved spending time in his shed tinkering and fixing things for his friends and family. He had a “part for everything” and a mastermind to fix anything. He told the best stories, made the best of friends with whomever he met or wherever he went. Mick had a soul for giving and helping. He filled the room with his character and soulful presence ready to offer a helping hand to anyone in need, no questions asked. He was truly an extension of God's great work and will be greatly missed by all.
Mick was devoted and contributed greatly to the community of Loyal. He was a member of the Loyal Snow Angels Snowmobile Club, one of the founding members of the Spencer Sportsman’s Club, a long-standing member of the Elks Club #665, a former member of the Loyal Jaycees, and spent years cooking the best sweet corn for the Loyal Corn Fest.
He will be dearly missed by his wife, Janice, of Spencer; his two daughters: Kimberly (Matt) Kline of Hudson, and Bethany Weyhmiller (Keith Gilge) of Chili; three grandchildren: Peyton and Tatum Kline, and Mason Dieringer; his mother: Dorothy Weyhmiller, of Loyal; two brothers: Robert (Maye) Weyhmiller of Fort Meyers, FL, and Keith (Lori) Weyhmiller of Loyal; one niece, three nephews, other relatives, and many, many friends.
Mick was preceded in death by his father; his father and mother-in-law, John and Betty Trunkel; and his brother-in-law, John Trunkel.
The family would like to thank family and friends for their visits and support during Mick's final days, and the wonderful staff at St. Croix Hospice for their compassion and care.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be given to the Loyal Food Pantry, or the Lucille Tack Center in Spencer.
