Our brother, Michael Peter Recht, unexpectedly passed from this world on December 11, 2018 at age 62, due to complications from diabetes. Born in Oak Park, Illinois, Mike attended Mary Lyon elementary and Steinmetz high schools in Chicago and the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign. A long-time resident of Seattle and recent citizen of Miami, Mike worked for Federal Express for 26 years and had recently retired. Mike loved sports (especially the Bears and the Cubs), was an avid jazz fan, enjoyed travel in the U.S. and abroad, and was a caring brother, uncle and great-uncle. Preceded in death by parents Jack and Dolores Recht, Mike is survived by sisters Leslie, Sue, Emily (Johnson) and Elizabeth (Jones) and brother John, five nieces, one nephew and a great nephew.

In lieu of flowers, contributions in his name can be made to the .
