Michael John Sazama, age 85 of Plymouth, MN passed away peacefully Sunday, October 18, 2020 at North Memorial Hospital in Robinsdale, MN.
Michael is survived by his daughter Bonnie (Doug) Knott of Albertville, MN; six grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; three brothers Louie, Art (Carol), and Roger (Debbie); and one sister Ardell (Marlin) Jorgenson.
Preceding Michael in death were his parents Albert and Regina; his wife Sandra; his two sons John and Jeffrey; his three brothers Duane, William, and James; two sisters Arlene Silbernagel and Marcie (Stanley) Silbernagel; and sister-in-law Shirley.
Michael was born June 1, 1935 in Perham, MN to Albert and Regina (Dombeck) Sazama. Michael joined the Army in 1958 and was a Korean Veteran. He married Sandra November 16, 1961 and moved to Plymouth, MN where they raised their family. Michael retired from the D.O.T. in 2000 and the couple then traveled the country in their RV and enjoyed spending time at their cabin in Alexandria, MN. Michael loved his family, fishing, playing cards, and life. He was always there with a helping hand, a smile, and a joke (which were not always politically correct). He will be greatly missed by all.
Visitation will be 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. followed by the prayer service at 12:00 noon on Friday, October 30 at Schoeneberger Funeral & Cremation Service in Perham.
