Ronald "Mick" Wayne Amacher, 71, passed away on Sunday, February 15, 2009 doing what he loved, playing slots at the casino.
Mick was the first born son of Fred and Grace (Bockin) in Medford. He attended elementary schools in Stetsonville and the Poppe School in Longwood. He graduated in 1955 from Withee High School.
On October 7, 1961 "was the year the war began" marrying the love of his life, Joan Catherine Weller in Abbotsford. Together, they operated Amacher Milk Hauling until 1984. In 1985 Mick was employed by Northland foods in Owen, retiring from Kerry Ingredients in 1999.
