Michael Darryl Hodalski
Michael entered this life on March 11, 1963, the third of four children born to Francis Xavier Hodalski, Jr., and Barbara Jean Seabold Hodalski.
Free spirited, artistically gifted and skilled in many crafts, Michael lent his considerable talents to many different employers in a variety of disciplines. Many in the suburban Chicago area will remember him as their friendly neighborhood bartender, or the waiter at their favorite restaurant. Those in Florida might have met him through the Nu Flow company, or as a licensed real estate agent for Prudential. He spent the last years of his life in the company of his parents, helping them maintain their Sarasota home and tending his garden.
Michael was preceded in death by his grandmother, Frances Mabel Fogler Hodalski, whose passing he felt every day of his life; his grandfather William Benjamin Seabold; his aunts Nancy Ruth Seabold Rutter and Beverly Ann Schimp Seabold; and uncles Delmont H. Rutter and Robert Junior Schimp.
Michael survives in the memories of his father, Francis Hodalski; sister Lynne Hodalski Champagne and her husband, Paul; sister Carol Hodalski Marsh and her husband, Ed; brother Francis Hodalski III; nephews Clayton and Ethan Marsh; cousin Sheri Schimp Lewis and her husband, Jim; cousin Lisa Ruth Rutter Wilhoit and her husband, Dave; and the many people whose lives he touched in Sarasota, Florida and suburban Chicago, Illinois.
At Michael's request, there will be no public memorial service. A small, private gathering to celebrate his life will be attended by his immediate family. Those wishing to honor his memory may consider making a donation to the Tidewell Hospice House of Sarasota, Florida.
