Michael G. Burgett Obituary

Michael Gene Burgett age 65, was welcomed home into the arms of Jesus on Sunday, June

2, 2024. He was surrounded by family and friends after a hard-fought battle with terminal

cancer.


Mike is survived by his loving wife, Lisa Burgett (Daley), his children, Nicole (Stevie)

Schroeder and Hannah(Trenten Miner-Krauski), and his 6 grandchildren, Noah, Nora, Taylor,

Tommy, Braylon, and Mazie. He is further survived by his siblings Barbara Wandsnider,

Katheryn Burgett, and Jefferey(Vickie) Burgett, his Father and Mother In-Law Phil and

Clarene Daley, his brother In-law Chad Daley and two sister In-laws Kim Daley and Wanda

Schroeter and many nieces and nephews. Mike is preceded in death by his father and

mother Gene and Barbara Burgett. His siblings Renee’ Burgett-Sweda and Patricia Burgett.


Mike was born on January 19, 1959, in Merton, WI, where he spent his childhood years. He

attended Arrowhead High School where he graduated in 1978. After graduating he began

his 50-year career mastering many trades including rough carpentry, roofing, siding, and

painting. Throughout his career, he was known for his expertise, keen eye for detail, and

quality in his craftmanship.


In his early married life, Mike moved to Okauchee Lake with his wife Lisa where they started

a family. He later moved to Hartland where he purchased his family’s home which he

restored and remodeled.


Mike enjoyed relaxing with his 2 cats Bennett & Leo while watching history shows and

drinking a vanilla malt. He enjoyed playing cards, cribbage, shooting pool, and watching the

Packers and the Bucks games. He also enjoyed bonfires, boat rides, and music while telling

his favorite stories. Relaxing in the garage with his buddies after a long hard day at work

while having a cold one was something he looked forward to. Mike loved going up north to

Goodman with his friends to go hunting and he enjoyed ice fishing with his best buddies. He

also loved going up north with his family to Arbor Vitae. Mike loved history in any form,

collecting antiques, and building birdhouses, benches, chairs, flowerboxes, and sheds. He

felt a great accomplishment in building his pool shed out of all salvaged materials and only

spending $7.56. Mike had great respect for his elders. He loved talking with the old timers

because he felt there was always something new to learn. He loved being with family and

friends joking, laughing, and reminiscing about life.


Mike and Lisa loved spending time on the boat on Okauchee Lake, playing cribbage, Friday

fish fry’s, long car rides, watching thunderstorms and snowstorms, and doing yard work, but

most importantly Grandpa Mike took great pride in his grandkids. They were his world.

He will be greatly missed by family, friends and many others.


This is not a goodbye, just a see you later.


Rock-N-Roll till we meet again.


A Memorial Service will be held on Sunday, July 7th at 11:00 AM at 510 Hill St. Hartland, WI.

Following the service, a Celebration of Life will be held at KJ’s Watering Hole in downtown

Merton with food and drinks to share your best memories of Mike from 1:00 PM-5:00 PM.


In lieu of flowers, memorials to the family are appreciated. Please share a memory that you

have of Mike in a card or online on the obituary website for his family to cherish for years to

come.
