Mike Kuberski, age 47 passed away in his home in Winneconne, WI on November 19, 2021.
He was born on September 8, 1974, to Bonnie (Lilly) Kuberski and Kenneth Kuberski. He resided in Algonquin and Lake in the Hills, IL for the first half of his life before moving to Wisconsin in 2005 with his wife, Lesa and son, Dean.
Mike had a lot of pride for his country and was proud to work on the trucks he built at Oshkosh Defense ensuring that the work he did would protect our service people. His career prior to Oshkosh was in auto body repair and painting for 20 years. He did amazing work, his favorite being classic cars. Mike loved bringing something old and broken back to better than original shine. This pride and commitment to perfection even earned him a mention in Hot Rod Magazine many years ago.
The greatest joy in Mike’s life was his son, Dean. He loved Dean with more than his whole heart, “biggest of all”. If you got the chance to hear a story, you knew exactly how proud Mike was when he talked about him.
Mike is survived and his memory cherished by his mother, Bonnie (Lilly) Kuberski; father, Kenneth Kuberski; son, Dean Kuberski; wife of 19 years, Lesa (Jorgensen); brothers, Bill Kuberski (Tammy Milbratz), and Dave (Adria) Kuberski; mother-in-law, Millie Jorgensen; sister-in-law, Viki (Kevin) Carlson; brother-in-law, Erik (Michelle) Jorgensen; as well as all of his aunts, uncles, cousins and second cousins. The love and pride Mike had for Dean extends to his nieces and nephews, Kalie (Christopher) Crum, Bill (Jodi) Kuberski, Alyssa Hickey (Jeff Wolff), Ceara Kuberski, Jayden Carlson, Broc Kuberski, Luke Kuberski, Maddox Carlson, Grant Kuberski; as well as his great-nieces and great-nephews.

When I pass don’t think of what could’ve happened
Instead think of what did happen in the little time that we had together.
Think of the laughs that we had together,
Think of the memories that we made together.
Don’t focus on when we were mad at each other,
Think of the days that ended with joy in both of our hearts.
Don’t think of when you were down,
Remember the times that there was someone there to pick you up.
Always remember; … “keep the emotional advantage”
