Age 65, on Thursday, Nov. 1, 2012. Lost a courageous 10 year battle with Sarcoma Cancer. Beloved husband of 35 years and best friend of Jane (Carothers) Fleischauer; eldest child of the late Dorothy and Paul Fleischauer; loving brother of Tom, Fran (Sara), John (Sheila), Judy (Jack) DelBarto, Margaret, Rich (Shirl), and the late Mary Fleischauer; also survived by numerous nieces and nephews. Michael was a graduate of Elizabeth Forward H.S. '64, Waynesburg University '68 and master's from Slippery Rock University. Mike was a teacher at North Allegheny H.S. for 35 years before cancer forced him to retire. He has a special bond with all of his students. Mike was a successful basketball coach of both the girls and boys teams. Mike was well liked and respected by all who knew him. His greatest attribute was making every person he met feel special. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him. He requested that in lieu of flowers all contributions be made to Sarcoma Alliance, 775 E Blithdale, #334, Mill Valley, CA 94941 and that people do one helpful/kind deed for a child today. Friends received Thursday, 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. and Friday, 9 a.m. until time of Blessing Service at 11 a.m. at DEVLIN FUNERAL HOME OF CRANBERRY, 2678 Rochester Rd., 724-772-8800.
