Michael "Mike" Whistler

April 21, 1966 — July 2, 2020

Michael “Mike” Edward Whistler, age 54, of Brainerd died unexpectedly on Thursday, July 2, 2020 at his home in Brainerd.  A gathering of family and friends will be held from 1-3PM on Friday, July 17, 2020 at the Brenny Family Funeral Chapel, Baxter.

Mike was born on April 21, 1966 in St. Paul to Vernon and Edna (Jackson) Whistler.  He is a graduate of Oakdale High School and continued his education at Central Lakes College obtaining two associates degrees in computer science.  Mike was currently employed at CTC as a purchaser; he thoroughly enjoyed the challenges of his job and finding ways to improve business.  Mike was a music aficionado, electronics enthusiast, and had a curiosity for astronomy that was out of this world.  He taught his family to laugh, care for one another, and stop and listen to the music.  Michael was caring, kind-hearted, and brilliant smart aleck.  Above all else he loved his family and friends beyond words and will be dearly missed by all who knew him.

Mike is survived by his siblings, Jim of Brainerd, Bob of Brainerd, Patty (Bob) Taylor of Wichita, KS, Cheryl of Staples; and many nieces, nephews, and friends.  He was preceded in death by his parents; two dogs, Chika and Chaz; and many aunts, uncles, and distant relatives.
