Born Feb. 27, 1947, in Lewistown, he was a son of the late Dorothy (Reisinger) and Frederick Bedelyon.

He was a graduate of Chief Logan High School, Class of 1965 and was a member of the Army Reserves.

Michael had worked at ACPI Cabinet Factory in Thompsontown.

Mike will no doubt be remembered for his charisma, his infectious smile and genuine soul. As put by Kristi, “Pap Mike is the happiest person I’ve ever seen,” he lived and loved life each and every single day. He would do anything for anyone and had a heart of gold. Mike enjoyed everything about life but most of all, he enjoyed watching Nic and Tyler wrestle. He loved hunting, family gatherings, sitting on the back porch with neighbors and friends, whom he considered family, and going to work.

Mike loved watching NASCAR racing and going to the drags. He truly lived every minute of every day. He also loved going up to “Dave’s Bottle Shop” and hanging out with his friends, telling stories and creating lifelong friendships. Mike also enjoyed spending time with Diesel, his “part-time dog.”

The family will receive friends from 7 to 9 p.m., Tuesday, June 20, 2017, at Heller-Hoenstine Funeral Homes Inc., Woodlawn, 200 N Main St., Lewistown.
