On December 5, 2020 Michael Francis Takacs (Mike) was called home to the lord after a courageous fight against this terrible virus. Mike was born on August 13, 1940 and has lived in Smithfield, Masontown, Penn Craft and Uniontown PA. Mike is survived by his loving wife Gwen of 33 years. Mike was predeceased by his parents Michael and Laura Takacs.
He leaves behind his loving children, Michael W. Takacs and his wife Christine Takacs, Craig Takacs and his wife Dawn Takacs, Scott Aronhalt and his wife Dawn Aronhalt, Sherri Laing, Shelly Conti, Shannon Aronhalt and his wife Richelle Aronhalt as well as 10 grandchildren, Gabrielle, Bobby, Stephen, Evan, Emily, Mason, Kelsey, Brody, Olivia and Alexandra who each loved their grandfather.
Mike also leaves behind his siblings, Joe Takacs and his wife Patricia Takacs, Don Takacs and his sister Janet Cerullo and her husband Mark Cerullo.
Mike was a veteran of the United States Army and served with honor in that capacity. Mike has worked as a machinist for all of his adult life. He was still working 7 days a week in that capacity right up to the point where he contracted his illness.
He was a member of the St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church. Mike was a caring, loving and selfless person who
would always put others first. Mike’s positive spirit and kind heart will be sorely missed by all.
The family would also like to thank Dr. Shanti Shenoy and the entire ICU staff at the Uniontown Hospital for their care and compassion with Mike and the family during this difficult time.
Arrangements are under the direction of the Terravecchia-Haky Home for Funerals, Inc., 71 Pennsylvania Avenue, Uniontown, PA 15401.
