Dwayne was born January 13, 1943, in Madrid, IA to Roland and Phyllis (Passick) Michael. He married Donna Dickey, the love of his life, on March 31, 1963 in Perry and they made their home on a farm between Woodward and Granger where they raised their three children.

Dwayne was a lifelong farmer and harvest was his favorite time of the year. When not farming he drove for contract mail carriers. His greatest joy was watching his children’s and grandchildren’s activities and their many family vacations to Estes Park, CO. He also enjoyed golfing, auto racing, hunting, and staying connected to his many friends.

Dwayne is survived by his wife of 58 years, Donna, his children, Mark (Resha) Michael of Norwalk, IA, Monte (Joan Martinson) Michael and Melody (Mike) Smith, both of Grimes, IA; seven grandchildren, Brooke Michael, Brittany Michael, Brandon (Alicia) Michael, Dylan (Olivia Schmidt) Michael, Logan Smith, Emma Smith, and Brady Smith; great-grandchild, Addy Michael; and his sister, Katheryn Michael of FL. He was preceded in death by his parents and his sister Carolyn Michael.

The family will receive friends from 5 - 7 p.m. Thursday at Emmanuel United Methodist Church. Memorial contributions may be made to the family for a memorial to be directed later. Online condolences will be welcomed at IlesCares.com.
