Michael Zahn, 47, passed away on Tuesday, December 1, 2020. He was born in Fond du Lac on June 16, 1973, the son of Joe and Bonnie Zahn (nee Knoelke).
Michael attended Waucousta Lutheran School and graduated from Winnebago Lutheran Academy and Moraine Park Technical College. He worked as an auto mechanic and delivered pizzas in West Bend. Michael enjoyed music and playing the drums and he loved watching the Green Bay Packers. Michael was a brave, courageous, and quiet man. His bravery truly showed through once he was diagnosed with Myotonic Dystrophy. Despite his diagnosis, Michael was able to maintain an independent lifestyle, where most people would not be able. He was truly a role model and inspiration for people who are suffering with Myotonic Dystrophy. Michael also had a deep faith in God.
Michael will be missed by his parents, Joe and Bonnie Zahn of Campbellsport, sisters, Lisa (Mike) Miara of Horicon and Traci (James) Smahel of Rice Lake, and other relatives and friends.
Private funeral services will be held and burial will take place at Trinity Lutheran Cemetery in Dundee.
In lieu of flowers, memorials are appreciated to Michael’s family to help cover the funeral expenses.
Michael’s family would like to thank the doctors, nurses, and staff at St. Agnes Hospital ICU for their care and compassion.
