Mike Wisneski 1_BW.jpg

Wisneski, Michael Roland of Edina, age 68, died peacefully on Tuesday, May 28, 2019, after a long and courageous battle with heart disease. He was a devoted fa- ther to his children, and loved to spend time with his extended family and close friends. Mike graduated from West High School in Minneapolis, served proudly in the Army, in Vietnam, and was honorably discharged in 1971. He was a long-time member of the glazier's union and enjoyed working outdoors, scaling buildings to install exterior glass on commercial buildings. His heart and soul, however, were rooted in the great outdoors; he enjoyed hunting and fishing at his cabin near Remer, Minnesota. Preceded in death by his parents, Roland and Anne Wisneski. Survived by his wife, Mary Vasaly, and his beloved children, Laura (Scot Torkelson), Michael (Amber Updike) and Thomas (Alexi Wisneski); his sister and brother-in-law, Barb and Larry Illies; his nieces, Simone Cole (Dave) and Madeleine Vasaly, and many other dear relatives and friends. He will be greatly missed by all. A funeral Mass will be held at Our Lady of Grace Church in Edina at 10:30 am on June 4, 2019, with visitation preceding Mass 30 minutes & lunch to follow. Private interment. In lieu of flowers, memorials to the American Heart Association or Minnesota DNR Future Forest Fund.
