John Michael Chudik

CHUDIK John Michael Chudik, passed away peacefully at home on October 22, 2012, after a 3 year battle with cancer. Mike was born in Youngstown, Ohio on February 21, 1956, graduated from Struthers High School in 1974, then went on to graduate from The Ohio State University in 1979. Mike enjoyed a successful career in the field of radiology at OSU and Grant Hospitals, moving into sales support and management positions at Siemens AG in Seattle, then returning to Columbus to Grant/Riverside Hospitals and finally with Philips HealthCare. Mike was an avid athlete, outdoorsman and sports fan, who loved working in his yard and doing various projects in his workshop. A non-smoker his entire life, he fought courageously against lung cancer, riding in the Pelotonia a year after his diagnosis to help fight this brutal disease. But primarily he loved his family: his wife of 22 years, Margaret L. Chudik (Maggie); and their three wonderful children, Alexandra (19 years), Morgan (18 years) and Grant (16 years). He also leaves behind two sisters, Marijo Martin (Anthony) of Westerville, and Catherine (Cassy) Taylor (Randall), of Dublin; nieces, nephews, many friends, co-workers and other family members, who all loved and admired him. He will be greatly missed. Mike was preceded in death by his parents John and Virginia Chudik, and most recently by his brother Robert Chudik, all of Struthers. Calling hours will be held from 4-8 p.m. Thursday, October 25, 2012 at SCHOEDINGER WORTHINGTON CHAPEL, 6699 N. High St., Worthington, OH.
