Beloved husband of Patti Rose; dear father of Chris and Shauna Mistretta; grandfather of Kiran; stepfather of Michael and Patrick Rose; friend to many. To know Mike, was to love him. His humor, eccentric nature and overall passion for life made all around him feel special and loved. His charisma, charm and kindness led him to being quite the personality.  From traveling the world with family and friends to playing in a rock and roll band since 8th grade, to becoming a "cowboy" in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, Michael Kane truly knew how to live, wild and free.  Committed to serving others throughout his life through various causes, Michael truly cared about the well-being of others and had a unique way of providing comfort and joy.  Above all, Michael's dedication to his family was first and foremost. His commitment and deep friendship with his children, grandson, wife, and step-sons was truly one of a kind.  A loyal friend, a loving father, a courageous and beautiful soul. Michael put up a brave fight until the end. May he be free, knowing that his life impacted so many. What a man. What a life. You will forever be missed and loved.  Funeral Service Thursday, March 16th, 11:30am at Church of the Holy Angels, 18205 Chillicothe Rd., Chagrin Falls, OH 44023.  A celebration of life memorial will immediately follow.  In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial gifts to The Sarah House at or the Amala Foundation at
