Michael Croyle Obituary

Michael Croyle, 59, of Galion, born on February 2, 1965, in Bridgeport, Connecticut, to Harold and Marjorie (Ferguson) Croyle.  He passed away on Saturday, March 23, 2024, in Western Reserve Hospital.

Michael was a man who truly embraced life in all its joys and quirks. He dedicated his career to the Heating and Air industry, where he honed his craft with diligence and passion.

Throughout his life, Michael found solace and community at Victory Rock church in Galion, where his faith blossomed. He had a soft spot for leisurely activities, from golfing and bowling to his newfound love for Pickleball. A notorious jokester with an infectious sense of humor, Michael was the life of any gathering, always charming those around him with his wit and warmth.

His love for family ran deep, always cherishing moments spent with his family and friends. Michael delighted in simple pleasures, whether it was watching over his sister's chickens, enjoying comedy movies, or cycling through the countryside. A dedicated Penn State Football fan, his Sundays were spent cheering on his favorite team with unwavering loyalty.

Michael's contagious laughter and zest for life will forever be etched in the hearts of those who knew him. Let us come together to celebrate the remarkable life of a man who radiated joy and kindness wherever he went. May his memory bring comfort and solace during this time of loss.

Embracing his love for the community, where memories will be cherished, and Middlesworth Chips from Pennsylvania will always be remembered.
