Henry "Hank" Michel Obituary
December 17, 1920 - November 9, 2016 Henry "Hank" Michel died November 9, surrounded by his family, who gathered to wish him a peaceful departure. Hank moved to the San Fernando Valley in 1952 with his young family, where suburban life suited him. A prolific writer of autobiographical short stories, his humorous documentation of life growing up in Chicago, WWII Army experiences, discoveries of Frank Lloyd Wright architecture and, most recently, tales of his great-grandsons delighted family and friends. Henry's work life included employment at Glendale Federal Savings and Capital Records. He is survived by his daughter Phyllis Schneider; his son Allen Michel (Kathy); his grandchildren Craig Schneider (Diana); Christina Schneider Dagand (John) and Matthew Michel. Hank was lucky to spend time with his three great-grandchildren, Henry Schneider (7), Walker Schneider (4), and Stella Dagand (5 months). Memorial donations can be made in Henry's name to the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation.
