They married on March 17th, over 44 years ago. She gave him a cup of coffee, he asked for her number, and the rest is history. Mike was a career drywall hanger until a degenerative disc and back issue forced him into early retirement and disability.
Mike was the life of nearly every party. His rare brand of humor and light-heartedness made him a great person to know and love. He was always joking around and playing pranks on people. Michael was into many things throughout his life including fishing, hunting, and tinkering in his shed or garage. He loved the Cleveland Browns, Indians, Cavaliers, and Monsters Hockey. He was a member of the Ashtabula County Browns Backers. He was an avid steel-tip darter and longtime member of the Ashtabula Dart League. Mike grew up in Perry & Madison; he lived most recently in Conneaut, N. Kingsville, & Ashtabula.
Mike is survived by his beautiful wife, Lori. Together they had three children, Wayne (Leesa) Lett of Ashtabula, Joel (Loretta) Lett of Conneaut, & Matthew (Sherri) Lett of Lake City, FL. Mike was a big kid at heart and loved spending time with his grandkids; Kevan, Kyle, Dakota, Elizabeth, Zachary, Mariah, Courtney, Alex, Chelsea, Bradley, and Mikey along with 4 great grandchildren. Mike is also survived by his oldest brother, Ronald Lett, & youngest sister, Tammie Jo Lett-Aikins, both of Madison. He loved his best friend, Bizzy, his faithful dog and two cats, Taz & Smokey. In the end, they never left his side and miss him so much right now.
