Michael T. Graff, known to most simply as "Mike," unexpectedly passed away on August 23, 2023, at Parkview Regional Medical Center in Fort Wayne. He was born on August 2, 1964, in Wabash County. He graduated from Northwood High School in 1982 and attended Valparaiso University with a focus on Journalism.
Mike was hard working and dedicated himsef to whatever he did. He spent time working for several RV factories and several feed mills, including ADM and Purina. Most recently, he worked in Environmental Services at Lutheran Kosciusko Hospital. He was respected for his commitment and strong work ethic.
Family and friends will always remember Mike for his good sense of humor and his dad jokes. He had a knack for making people laugh and brightening up any room he entered. He had a quick wit and infectious laughter.
Those who knew Mike described him as occasionally stubborn but also as a big teddy bear with an immense heart for his family. He took great joy in spoiling his grandchildren and showering love upon his wife. His children were a great source of pride for him.
Outside of work and family, Mike had diverse interests. He had a deep appreciation for music from the 80s across all genres. DC Comics captivated his imagination, and he found solace being around lakes, appreciating their beauty. Mike also enjoyed collecting knives as a hobby.
Surviving Mike is his wife and partner of more than 31 years, Tami Graff of Warsaw; son, Brandon (Ashley) Graff of Warsaw; daughter, Tori (Christopher) Bourland of Wakarusa; daughter, Kati (fiancé, Dakota Brown) of Vista, CA; and three cherished grandchildren. He also leaves behind his parents, Marty and Donna Graff and two siblings.
A visitation will be held on August 28, 2023, from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM at Titus Funeral Home, 2000 Sheridan Street, Warsaw. A Life Celebration® service will follow the visitation beginning at 7 P.M.
