Michael Zorick, 82, of Valparaiso passed away peacefully at home on Wednesday, March 10, 2021.  He was born November 25, 1938 in Gary, IN to Steve & Agnes (Domin) Zorick, graduated from Lew Wallace High School in 1956 and served proudly with the U.S. Army.  Mike made his career with Midwest/National Steel for 38 years, retiring as a Crew Coordinator in the Roll Shop in 1998.  On October 15, 1966 he married Karen Sue Dommer who survives along with their children, Julie (Jon) Johnson-Pitts of Cleveland, TX, Donna (Matthew) Waterman of Pfafftown, NC & Michael (Tracy) Zorick of Michigan City, sister, Lucy Chase of Portage, grandchildren, Ashley (Christopher) Cole, Nathan Johnson, Lauren Waterman, Connor, Nick & Sierra Blaney and twin great-grandsons, August & Heimdall.  He was preceded in death by his parents and siblings: Marge Woods, Joseph, Steve, John & Frank Zorick.  
A visitation will be held Saturday, March 13th, from 2 – 5 pm at Moeller Funeral Home, Valparaiso.    Mike’s well-practiced and feel-good humor endeared him to countless friends and strangers over many decades.  In recent years much of his uplifting social practices occurred on trips for his favorite pastimes at local restaurants, garage sales, auctions & casinos.  He tried to leave everywhere and everyone he visited in better spirits than when he arrived.  Mission accomplished “Old Fart”.
