Michael D. Tretter died unexpectedly in the early morning of December 24, 2013.
A lifelong resident of Bowling Green, he was born to James and Helen Tretter on November 2, 1964. He married Lori Leathers on June 15, 1996. Their daughter Kate, aged 10, is a fifth-grader at St. Aloysius, where Michael was an active parish member.
Michael was a 1983 BGHS graduate and earned two degrees from BGSU: a bachelor’s in 1987 and a master’s in computer science in 1996.
He spent nearly 26 years with Marathon Oil Company, holding a variety of positions within computer technology. His colleagues respected him for his energy, dependability, and conscientiousness.
Michael had many friends as well as being a devoted family man and father. He enjoyed doing home improvements and repairs for his family and others. He and his family loved travel, particularly theme parks and annual visits to North Padre Island in Texas.
Michael and Lori were blessed with 17 years of marital happiness, though their time together was all too brief.
In addition to Lori and Kate, survivors include Michael’s mother, Helen Tretter, sisters Loanna Tretter and Lorraine (Steve) Rowe, Lori’s parents, Park and Marilyn Leathers, her sister, Alisa (Marc) Suelzer, niece Paige, and nephews Jack and Cole, all of the foregoing from Bowling Green.
Michael’s father, James R. Tretter, preceded him in death.
Visitation will be at DUNN FUNERAL HOME, 408 W. Wooster St. located in the Historical District of Bowling Green, on Sunday, December 29, from 1 to 5 p.m., with a Scripture service at 4:30.
A Funeral Mass will be conducted by Father Mark Davis at St. Aloysius Church, Bowling Green, at 11 a.m. on Monday, December 30, followed by burial at Oak Grove Cemetery and a bereavement luncheon at the church.
Memorial contributions may be made to St. Aloysius Church or School, or to the Bowling Green Community Foundation.
