Michael John Raczka


Michael John Raczka, 73, of Anaheim, California, died June 12, 2022 in Garden Grove, California. 

Mike was born May 16, 1949 in Buffalo, New York to Chester and Mary Ellen (Spawton) Raczka.

He was extremely proud to have served in the United States Marine Corps. After meeting his future wife (Virginia), the family settled in Orange County, California. Mike worked for over 50 years as a mechanical draftsman for several companies. He enjoyed spending time with his family, crosswords and puzzles, a good joke,  watching the Angels, playing pool, and sitting out in his garden enjoying the birds and flowers. Mike also loved taking family photos when everyone was together.

He is survived by his wife of 48 years, Virginia; his children and their spouses, Angela, Jessica (Patrick), and Nicholas (Taylor); his grandchildren, Danielle (Anthony), Christian, Landon, Gabrielle and Evan; and his siblings, Barbara, Deborah (Charles), Dawn (Felix), and Walter (Brenda). He is also survived by many loving nieces, nephews, cousins, family and friends.

 He will be forever missed and loved!
