Thomas John, the son of Thomas and Anastasia (Smith) Michaels was born on April 17, 1939, in New Prague. On April 26, 1969, he was united in marriage to Janice Mader.

Tom was a hard working man who owned and operated Michaels Trucking for many years. He was an avid fisherman and hunter. Tom enjoyed going for a cruise in his pickup and stopping by to visit family and friends, always talking smart with a grin on his face.

He also enjoyed every minute with his grandchildren and he was always there to help them with anything he could. He loved spending time with them and played a major role in their lives. “Boppa” as they called him will be dearly missed.

Survivors include his wife, Janice of Montgomery; daughters, Tina Way of Montgomery and Amy Michaels (and Justin Ricketts) of Montgomery; six grandchildren, Laura, Amanda, Brady, Jack, Rachel, Addie; a sister, Connie (and Kenny) Weber of Kilkenny; a brother in law, Joe Sladek of Le Center and other relatives and friends.

Tom was preceded in death by his parents; brother, Keith Michaels; sisters, Shirley Grundhoffer Wieland and Delyla Sladek; and brother in law, Joseph Grundhoffer.
