Michael David Beroset Sr. was born May 10, 1947 in Akron Ohio, and went
to be with his Lord on Wednesday, February 14, 2018 at his home in Grand
Rapids Michigan. Michael truly was one of the most “human” beings that
you would ever meet. He loved and was loved by many.
His friends, young and old, meant everything to him, and he had no sense of
age when it came to friendship.
Young at heart but full of wisdom from all of life’s experiences, he was
always eager to share that knowledge with others.
Michael loved his wife, Dawn, his dogs, cooking, barbecuing, bible study,
music and spending time with his close friends at his favorite watering holes
or out on his back deck. Michael was a Salesman through and through, and
had the ultimate silver tongue. During the course of his professional life he
sold more different types of things then can be recounted in this small
paragraph, from cemetery plots, concentrated orange juice, life insurance,
credit card processing, pet insurance, and lastly corporate jets. He was
charismatic, a talented speaker and quick with a handshake and a smile. Fast
on his feet and a sharp dresser, he plied his trade effectively for more than 50
years in Akron, Traverse City and finally in Grand Rapids. He very much
loved what he did, and he did it all! After his passing, Michael leaves behind
his wife, Dawn Walker, his dog Baby, his sons Michael Beroset II and
Jeremy Beroset. He also leaves an enormous number of friends. All of his
friends and well-wishers are invited to stop by at the Score Restaurant
(Northland Drive) on Monday, February 19th between 4 and 6 PM, to raise a
glass in his honor, tell stories about him, both truthful and nonsense, which
are most likely to be true anyway.
Memorial contributions may be made in his name to the Bissell Pet
Foundation or the Kent Count Humane Society.
