Michael M. Kucera, 67 of Valparaiso, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, November 30, 2018.  He was born February 14, 1951 in Chicago to Joseph and Elizabeth (Skipala) Kucera.  Mike graduated with his Associates Degree from Hope College in Michigan and made his career as a Steel Worker with Ryerson Steel in Chicago for over 30 years.  He was a member of the Steel Workers Union and attended Midway Church of God in Chicago and Central Church of God in Portage.  Mike was an avid fan of Chicago sports, especially the Blackhawks, White Sox and Bears.  He also loved playing and listening to music, with Classic Rock being his favorite genre and Yes being his favorite band, and attending numerous concerts throughout his lifetime.  Mike was also a big fan of all things science fiction, including The X-Files and Dr. Who.  While Mike had many interests in his life, none was more important to him than his beloved family.
