Michael J. Eberhardy, 51, of Kronenwetter, passed away peacefully at the Aspirus Hospice House with his loving family by his side. After a courageous battle with a rare, aggressive form of brain cancer called glioblastoma multiforme, Mike’s life came to an end. This disease caused complications throughout his body, however, the most damage from the cancer occurred in his brain.
Mike was born on May 5, 1967 to Arnold and Suzanne (Brown) Eberhardy. He married Carla Zastrow on June 26, 2010.
Mike worked various jobs throughout his life, most recently he worked for G3 Industries. He enjoyed working on cars and various other things around the garage. He especially loved riding his motorcycle and going golfing. Mike always had a smile on his face and would always be one to crack jokes. He was kindhearted and full of ambition for anything he set his mind to. Mike cherished the time he would spend with his family going up north; whether it was camping, staying at the cabin, or being out on the pontoon. He was also an avid Packers and Badgers football fan.
Mike is survived by his wife, Carla; daughter, Holly Eberhardy; son, Tyler Borchardt; step-daughter, Raeanne Kruncos; father, Arnold Eberhardy; brothers, Paul (Erin Stevenson) Eberhardy and Scott Eberhardy; sisters Barbara (David) Wierzba and Jean (Joe) Lamb.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Suzanne, and mother-in-law, Ruth Zastrow.
