Heaven gained the most amazing angel on Thursday, April 2, 2020. Michael Marvin Mercer, age 70, passed away at home surrounded by family.

He was a loving husband, father, grandfather and friend. He lived a life full of hard-work, honesty and love. He will be fondly remembered by everyone who knew him.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Arthur and Ethel Mercer, his sisters Donna Stevens and Gracie Maitland, his brother and sister-in-law Bill and Carol Mercer and his brother-in-law James Bell.

He is survived by his wife of 46 years, Debra L. Mercer (Fitzgerald); his daughters Stacie (Jack) Grooters, Darcy (Martin) Reister, his two grandchildren Madelyn and Gibon Reister, his sisters Ina Bell and Kathryn (Frank) Pulsifer, his brothers Donald (Sue) Mercer, Arden (Gene) Mercer, his sister-in-law Susan Brants (Juris), his brother-in-law Ted Maitland, his lifelong friend Rick (Diane) Martens, his many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews and more friends than anyone could count.

He was a gentle giant. Mike fought hard to spend as much time with his family as possible, making many great memories along the way. He is going to be sorely missed by his family and friends, but they are grateful his suffering has come to an end.

A memorial to celebrate a life well-lived will be held at a later date. If anyone is interested in making a donation in Mike's memory, please consider donating to Faith Hospice or The Santa Claus Girls organization in Grand Rapids.

Uncle Mike and Auntie Deb have always been favorites of mine. Such big hearts and open arms always for family, and loved ones. Uncle Mike I never want to forget your voice, you were always sweet and cheerful. Always worried about how I was doing. My kiddos loved you, and we will always have great memories. Give my grandparents love from us. This world has lost a great person now, but heaven has gained one of the best! Love you!
