Obituary of Michael Walter Gozdor
Michael Walter Gozdor was born in Grosse Pointe, Michigan on January 6, 1965. He was one of three children born from the union of Walter Gozdor and Carol Walczyk. Michael attended Dearborn High School and graduated with the Class of 1983. He furthered his education putting himself through Pharmacy School by attending Wayne State University.
Michael was employed at Mercy Memorial Hospital for more than twenty years as a Pharmacist. He then transferred to the University of Michigan Medical Center where he had been employed the past ten years.
Michael felt most at home when in the Great Smoky Mountains. It was there in Sevier County, Tennessee that he married the love of his life, the former, Sebrina Gail (Langford) Hyden on August 20, 2007. Together they would have a blended family with two daughters each.
Michael had immense knowledge from weird facts, to current events, and even conspiracy theories. He preached to his family about the importance of education. Michael was proud of each of his girls and cherished the time he spent with his four grandchildren. As a young man he had had the privilege to own a couple boats, raising his daughters around the water. He enjoyed watching and collecting movies. Christmas by far was his favorite time of year and it was well-known that he began his shopping in June each year.
