Avon: Unexpectedly on April 27, 2019 at age 72. Mike is survived by his wife of 46 years Pat (Twamley) Germano and sons; Donny Germano of Buffalo, Keith (Angela) Germano VA, and Brian (Jackie) Germano of Livonia; grandchildren, Dylan, Cory, Alexandria (Devin Dalmolin), Cortni (Isaiah Shepard), and Michael Germano; great-grandsons Rylan Germano and soon to be born Xavier Shepard. Also survived by many other loving family and friends.
When people think of the kind of man Mike Germano was, the word “character” comes to mind. However, not just for his wise crack jokes and one of a kind sense of humor. He was a man of honor, integrity, and dignity; just few of his amazing traits. Many will remember him for his time in the Avon Fire Department, working his way through the ranks to Fire Chief, and being a dedicated employee to Swift Lift, where he made a career for himself, and eventually retired. He was married to his wife, Patricia, for 46 years, and together they had three boys, Donald, Keith, and Brian. Throughout his life, he had an impact on more people than he realized, being a confidant and role model to those around him. His impact spread throughout the community of Avon, gaining him unprecedented respect from all. Mike had many grandchildren, whom he impacted on different levels, but all of which were much bigger than he could have imagined. Those close to him know the kind of person he truly was, and how his soul will forever be apart of everyone who really knew him. Michael D. Germano will forever live in the hearts of his family, and those close to him. He will be greatly missed, but this is not his last goodbye. This is “I’ll see you later”.
