It is with incredible sorrow and grief that we must tell you that Michael George Petros passed this morning. Surrounded by family and led in prayer by his grandson, Jason, he has fallen asleep and awaits the resurrection.

It is hard to find the words to describe what an amazing husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and uncle he was to our family and we now have a hugely empty hole in our hearts.

He was so selfless in his way and dutifully committed to Jehovah. We cannot express our gratitude enough for all the prayers, kindness and all your support through this message board in these difficult times.

Be assured that once we gather our thoughts we will post additional information for you.

We can all look forward to visiting him in Paradise.

With love,
The Michael Petros Family

    The family expressed beautifully who Michael was. He will be dearly missed. His experience and wisdom ran deep on so many subjects, and he was willing to share that knowledge with all of us. A pillar in Jehovah's organization. It's difficult to fathom how many lives Michael (and Norma) have touched. He was an excellent example of a self sacrificing brother and friend!

    He was my “great” uncle. I mean that in both ways. What I always appreciated was his smile and kindness. I always felt his warmth. His generous spirit and faith are such examples for us. Jason and I are truly saddened and both know the pain of losing a father -and grandfathers. It’s a void that doesn’t go away. But with Jehovah’s help and the hope we have we can have the courage to keep on. We love you Aunt Norma and Carol and Susan and the whole family. We are praying and thinking of you at this time. So wonderful to have such a loving family and extended spiritual family.
