Lewis Michael Rankin, Age :65

Jun 29,1953---Jan 03,2019

If there ever was a reason to burst out in laughter, it was from the never ending jokes of Lewis Michael Rankin. Mike passed away on the night of January 3rd, 2019, at the age of 65. Born on June 29, 1953, Mike was a precious gift to parents Lewis Crawford Rankin and Constance Back Rankin. An older brother to Julie Rankin Daigneault, the family four was never shy of jokes, neighborhood friends and, above all, love. As the family grew and years melted into milestones, Mike married Shelley Reusser Rankin. The couple brought son Kory Rankin (now 30) and daughter Kelsey Anne Rankin (now 27) into this world, starting a life long journey that brought an unyielding joy to Mike.


Mike was the type of man to bring a case of beer (or three) to any occasion, treating family and friends to a good time with his life of the party personality. In his home, he gave his children the life lessons they needed to be the strong and successful individuals they have become today. Whether you are his brother from another mother, his baby sis-yuk, his Scooter, his baby boy, or merely a stranger passing on the street, Mike would always find a way to share with you a smile, a story and, above all, his unrelenting love and joy for laughter and life.


Mike touched the lives of too many to note here, however, his love for each and every one of his friends and family members shines through the somberness of his loss. Here’s to you, Mike.


Lewis Michael Rankin is survived by mother of his children Shelley, son Kory and daughter-in-law Jackie, daughter Kelsey, sister Julie and brother-in-law Mark, and stepmother Elaine.
