Michael Gangluff

d. July 1, 2023

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the death of our beloved son, brother, father and uncle.

Michael David Gangluff. Michael was killed in a one vehicle accident on July 1st, 2023, a mere 200 yards from his driveway on the road he has lived on for the last eight years.


Michael, affectionately known as " Moozel " to his family, was a gentle soul who could summon his inner strength when needed. Michael wouldn't quit on anything until he accomplished whatever it was he wanted to do. Michael took pleasure in the simple things in life. He was a person who never needed much to be happy. He was loyal, brave and very intelligent. He was extremely generous with those who were important to him and usually with people he didn't even know. Michael's contagious personality and enormous love of life were evident wherever he was or whoever he was with. His passing has left a huge chasm in the hearts of all who knew and loved him.


Michael is survived by the light of his life, his children, Michael David son age seven and Audriana Nichole daughter age four. Both of whom he will love and guide eternally.

Michael is also survived by his father and mother Ted and Sherry "Riffe" Gangluff, his brother

Anthony (Michelle) Gangluff, sisters Amy (Adam) Grandstaff, Jamie (Steve) Terry and his best friend Destry Blamer. As well as many nieces and nephews, Sophia and Emma Terry, Summer Grandstaff, Kaitlyn, James, William and Ethan Gangluff. Also numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and his maternal grandmother Alice Riffe.


Michael is now at peace joining his family and friends who have preceded him. He will be remembered for his great big heart and how much he made sure that those he loved knew it.
