Michael Lee Denlinger

April 26, 1976 — June 29, 2018

Michael "Mike" Denlinger, 42, of Greenville, passed away Friday, June 29, 2018 at Wayne Health Care Center due to complications following heart surgery.

He was born April 26, 1976 to Cynthia (Wion) Denlinger of Trotwood, Ohio and the late Douglas Denlinger.

In addition to his father, Mike was preceded in death by his infant brother, Brian.

Mike was a mechanic, but he was also a master of all trades. He could fix or build anything. He especially enjoyed working on cars. He loved the outdoors, loved camping, grilling and was obsessed with steak. He had his own unique fashion sense; he always wore a hat and sleeves on his shirts didn't last long. Mike loved his family and was a very engaged parent. There was nothing he wouldn't do for his daughter, including getting on all fours and barking like a dog. He loved Christmas and looked forward to the annual trip to Hueston Woods where the family would get a cabin and enjoy the winter weather, and the indoor pool. He will be missed by all who knew him and remembered as a loving husband, devoted father, compassionate son and loyal friend.

In addition to his mother, Mike is survived by his loving wife of eight years, Lynna (Sullivan) Denlinger, whom he married December 31, 2009; his children, Braeden Denlinger of Kettering, Ohio and Mykala Denlinger of Greenville; his step-children, Donovan and Quinton Rogers, both of Greenville; his brothers; Chad (Wanda) Denlinger of Brookville, Ohio, and Shane Denlinger of Trotwood, Ohio; and his nephews, Austin and Anthony Denlinger.

A Celebration of Mike's life will be held at 5pm on Thursday, July 5, 2018 at Tribute Funeral Homes, Greenville Campus, with Rev. Eric Fee officiating.

The family will be receiving guests on Thursday from 2pm until the time of the service at 5pm at the funeral home.
