August 13th, 1984 - June 30th, 2014
Michael Charles Ploskonka, Born August 13th, 1984, in Kansas City, MO, passed away on June 30th at his home in Nampa Idaho.
Son of Mike & Lynn Ploskonka, Susan and Monty Black. He is lovingly remembered as a friend to every child he ever met, an avid fisherman and a talented skateboarder.
His tendency to keep things clean and tidy made him a natural favorite at Heaven's Best Carpet Cleaning alongside his dear friends Ryan and Tiffany Christensen and their children who he adored. His charming personality ensured repeat business for the years he was there.
Once his sales abilities were discovered and after years of strong urging from his family to follow his father's footsteps into the retail automobile industry, he joined the ranks of his "Band of Brothers" as he called them, at TEAM Mazda Subaru in Nampa.
Michael soon became devoted to honing his craft, as a salesman. He excelled at this work of finding nearly instant success, due largely to his enthusiastic approach to life and his tremendous work ethic. His customers regularly sent friends and family to work with him, citing his sincerity and genuine concern for his clients' best interests.
If he was not at the car lot welcoming new guests of wading into lake Lowell to catch a large mouth Bass, Michael could be found at any number of skate parks or at Bogus Basin with his nephew Zane Smith, sharing with him years of experience hard eared with bruised eyebrows and scrapped knees.
Services will be held on July 10th, 2014 at 11 am at the Caldwell 12th Ward LDS Chapel at 15782 Farmway Road in Caldwell, Idaho. Viewing will be held at Zeyer Funeral Chapel in Nampa on Wednesday from 6-8 pm. Michael will be laid to rest at the Canyon Hills Cemetery in Caldwell, Idaho.
Michael is survived by his sisters Carli Ploskonka and Kristin Clemons, brother Matt Harris, nephews Zane and Zach Smith, Xander Clemons and his niece, Anslee Clemons.
