Mike Brusehaber, 56, of Jamestown passed away Monday, May 27, 2019, at his home with his wife and family by his side.
He was born Feb. 6, 1963, in Covington, Kentucky. He married the love of his life, Carmen Quinn, on July 7, 2006, in Boonville, Missouri.
Mike graduated from Paramount High School in Paramount, California, then went on to further his education at Universal Technology Institute in Phoenix, Arizona, majoring in Master Auto Mechanics and Transmission Building and graduating as a Master Mechanic and Master Transmission Builder. He went on to build a great career and had an impeccable work ethic and a Class A reputation as a Transmission Builder.
Mike was constantly learning new things, be it in the auto industry, anything mechanical, aquaponics, farming or raising all different types of poultry. He had a thirst to learn no matter what the subject. He was best at building things and problem-solving.
Mike had a deep love of cars, drag racing, taking things apart to see how they worked, putting them back together and having the ability to fix them if they were broken. Most of all he loved his family and friends. Mike never met a stranger; even if in need, he would do what he could to help someone out.
Mike is survived by his loving wife, Carmen of Jamestown; father and mother, Carl and Linda Brusehaber of Apple Valley, California; stepbrother, James Castle, and wife, Kathleen, and kids; stepsister, Patricia Foehlinger, and kids; sister- and brother-in-law, Jordan Quinn Scholl and Roy Scholl of Jamestown; brother-in-law, Joshua Quinn of Columbia; three nephews, Dayson Davis, Ben Davis and Jensen Quinn; and two nieces, Lacey Davis and Natalie Quinn.
Mike left this physical world with more family and friends than he ever dreamed to have had.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
Any memorials may be given to the American Cancer Society.
Arrangements are under the direction of Memorial Funeral Home, Columbia, Missouri.
