Michael George Horsch was born on December 24, 1960 in Cokato, Minnesota, to Gaylan and Eunice “Lulu” (Ryti) Horsch. He was raised on his family farm just south of Annandale along with his siblings, Joe, Betsy, Todd, Jenny, Emily, and Ryan. He attended Annandale Schools where he was a multi-sport athlete in football and hockey; graduating with the Class of 1979. He was well-known and loved throughout his community due to his friendly and comedic personality and his willingness to lend a hand to anyone in need.
After high school, he married the love of his life, Debbie Endres, of Buffalo, on June 1, 1985 at St. Francis Catholic Church in Buffalo. They moved into his childhood farmhouse where they raised their two daughters, Amanda and Jessica. He has maintained close relationships with his siblings and has been a beloved uncle to his many nieces and nephews. He has also enjoyed being a grandfather to his grandboys, Evan and William Rudningen, who adore him. His family meant the world to him and he spent as much time as possible with them. In his free time, he enjoyed woodworking, gardening, days by the pool with his family, and vacations with friends in Mexico.
Mike will be dearly missed. We love you Mike.
