Michael A. "Mike" O'Brian, Sr.

AGE: 81 • Newark

Michael A. O'Brian, Sr. passed away surrounded by family after a brief illness on Tuesday, June 17. Mike was born on July 2, 1932, in Montgomery, Indiana to the late Anastasia and Ottis O'Brian. He was self-employed and proud to be a business owner for 50 years - first as Kitchen Kountertops and then as Michael O'Brian & Sons. He developed intricate machinery for the production of cabinets and countertops.

Mike had a great sense of humor and lived life to the fullest - traveling the world. He served his country in the Air Force. His hobbies were flying single-engine planes, enjoying Nascar, fishing, and playing cards. He will be deeply missed.

Mike was predeceased by his parents and sisters, Catherine Michaels and Margaret O'Brian; his sons, Patrick and Joseph; and his canine companion "Lady."

He is survived by his wife, Regina "Jean" O'Brian; his son, Michael A. O'Brian, Jr. and his wife, Maryanne; his daughter, Mary Ann O'Brian and her companion, Mark Gazdzinski; his son, Stephen O'Brian and his companion, Teresa; his daughter, Karen and Greg Hudson; his daughter, Susan Reshetar and her husband, Dave; his son, Tom O'Brian; his daughter-in-law, Donna; and his brother, Patrick E. O'Brian and his wife, Jeanette of Montgomery, Indiana. He is also survived by 16 grandchildren and 1 great-grandson.
