Verona – Michael J. “Mike” Pedracine, age 60, was born on November 14, 1958 in Madison, WI and died after a brief illness at Agrace Hospice in Fitchburg on February 1, 2019, with his loving family by his side. Mike started school in Reedsburg, WI before the family moved to Verona in 1965 where he attended Verona schools, graduating in 1977. Mike worked at Thorstad Chevrolet for 33 years. He and Carmen enjoyed spending time at River Bend Campground in Watertown. When Mike wasn’t fishing, you could find him somewhere close to nature. He enjoyed his Boundary Waters and Canada fishing trips with his life time friends. Mike was an avid Badger, Packer and Brewer fan, rarely missing a game on TV. Mike was a fixer and will be dearly missed by his dad in taking care of his mowers and snow blower. His mother never had to repair a squeak or leak because Mike could fix anything.
Mike is survived by his parents, Larry and Joan (Berens) Pedracine; his partner, Carmen Thompson; sister, Kris (Jim) Pitman; brother, Jay (Lisa) Pedracine; niece and nephews, Tyler and Brandon Pedracine, Colin and Haley Pitman; Aunts and Uncles, Dick (Lois) Berens, Yvonne Beale, Dick (Cathy) Pedracine, Deanna (Jerry) Esser; and many cousins.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents, George and Ethel Berens and Hubert and Adelia Pedracine; and his Uncle, Don Beale.
A Memorial Service will be held at 12:00pm on Friday, February 8, 2019, at RYAN FUNERAL HOME, 220 Enterprise Dr, Verona. Visitation will take place from 10am until the time of service.
