Michael Charles Peschges
Michael Peschges, the son of Gerald “Jerry” and Colette Silvernale Peschges, was born on March 23, 1959 in Westbrook, MN. He grew up in Currie, MN and attended IHM Catholic School and Tracy Area High School. Mike entered the US Army in December of 1981 and served in Kansas, Germany and California before his honorable discharge in May of 1987. Mike then moved back to Currie and operated Ma Pa Loma and did over the road trucking and road construction. Mike was united in marriage to Marilyn Schmitt in her parents, Bob and Dolores’s living room on February 3, 2010 and resided with the love of his life on her grandmother’s farm until moving into Currie last fall. He loved being on the farm and every year Mike would grow his hair and donate it to locks of love. His many careers include working with his uncle Kenny and Vernon at Peschges Painting and most recently at the Iona Post Office, where he made many new friends. Mike passed away on Tuesday, September 24, 2019 at the Murray Medical Center in Slayton at the age of 60. He enjoyed hunting, mowing, spending time with his family, especially his granddaughters, Jordawn, Joslynn, Joelle, Remi and Aubrey, they were the light of his life. Mike also enjoyed watching the Twins and Vikings and hanging out in the garage drinking coffee with Marilyn, Bruce and his beloved critters. Mike loved bonfires, the bigger the better....”just a little more diesel!”
