July 29, 1976 ~ April 9, 2022
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Michael Lilly. This is a completely unexpected loss and our family is devastated by his passing.
Michael Eugene Lilly, 45, of Fargo, ND, passed away on April 9th. Born in Fort Wayne, IN to John and Catherine Lilly. Michael loved cars and chose to pursue this passion by attending the University of Northwestern Ohio with a focus on high performance automotive technology after graduating from Concordia Lutheran High School in 1995.
Michael’s impressive career in the automotive industry, including his current employment with Gateway Chevrolet, was only overshadowed by his love and dedication to his family.
In 2003, he married Barbara and soon their family grew to include three amazing children. He was an ever-present, supportive, loving, generous, and fun father. He provided a listening ear, a shoulder to cry on, and a contagious smile. He shared his love of cars, football, and being on the water with his family. His sense of humor and fun-loving spirit will be forever remembered.
Michael was predeceased by his father, John.
He is survived by his wife, Barbara, his children Abigail, Zachary, and Bailey, his mother Catherine, and brothers, Matthew and Nicholas, their spouses and children. The family is grateful for all the love, prayers and support during this difficult time.
