Michael Joseph Miszler, more likely known as Mike, was born on November 15, 1965 and left us much too soon on October 19,2023. Mike was raised by his loving parents, Joseph and Susan (Foster) Miszler in Hawley, Pennsylvania, where he remained until joining the United States Air Force in 1988. Mike graduated Wallenpaupack High School in 1984. Mike and Karen met in 1983 in the McDonald’s parking lot where he got yelled at for throwing garbage out of his car window by Karen. The rest is history.
Mike and Karen married in Honesdale, Pennsylvania on February 14, 1987, and were married 36 years. They lived near Hawley, Pennsylvania until Mike joined the United States Air Force in 1988. They moved to their first, and only, duty station at Malmstrom Air Force Base in Great Falls, Montana. They lived in Great Falls, Montana for about 5 years, then settled in Belt, Montana where they remained. They were blessed with two incredible children, Joseph Miszler and Brooke (Miszler) Whitney.
Mike completed his military duty in 1993 and worked to complete his training as a licensed real estate agent, under Century 21, shortly thereafter. Mike enjoyed helping people find their dream home and helped them to learn the skills needed to make a good long-term decision for their families.
In 1995, Mike made the decision to go to college, one of the first in his family. He studied Computer Electronics and achieved his Associate degree in November 1996. He was the Salutatorian of his class. He was hired directly out of his class and became an instructor in Networking and Computers through August of 1998.
In August of 1998, he received a notification of an employment opportunity at the College. Mike joined Century Business Network Solutions at that time as a computer technician and network administrator. He remained loyal to them until his passing, 25 years. He was blessed with meeting many incredible people in these 25 years, in the company itself, and in many Edward Jones offices through the state of Montana.
Mike enjoyed hunting, fishing, riding his motorcycle, trap and skeet shooting, leathercrafting, and of late, combining his interests and skills to make incredible custom items for many friends, family and strangers alike.
Mike had a heart for service. He volunteered 19 years in the Belt Volunteer Fire and Ambulance Services where he served in many roles, including board of directors’ member, and President of the Belt Ambulance over the years. He was a volunteer instructor for Emergency Medical Technicians, and with others, brought many classes of EMT’s to the Belt Area. He had a heart for helping others in any way and would often volunteer to fulfill a need in the community or help a new shooter at the club with equal enthusiasm. As a result, people were drawn to him, and even though inherently initially shy, this connection filled his heart.
Michael is survived by his wife Karen, and son Joseph of Belt, Montana and Daughter Brooke (Kyle) Whitney, of Helena. He is survived by his Mother Susan Miszler, of Vero Beach, Florida, Sisters Lisa (Robert) Hancock, Robin Miszler (Tom), and Lori (James) Hiller of Pennsylvania. He is also survived by grandchildren Dalton and Easton Whitney, of Helena, Montana and multiple nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his Father, Joseph John Miszler, and nephew Jeremy Hiller.
Celebration of Life services will be held at the Great Falls Trap and Skeet Club, 183 N. Frontage Road, Great Falls, MT on Friday October 27th at 2 pm. Please join us in celebrating the Mike’s life by joining us for Military honors, sharing of stories, a potluck, and maybe shoot a round or two in his honor. He would have loved it.
