Charles Michael "Mike" Fidler Jr., 50, of Milton, passed away in his home surrounded by his family on Friday, Feb. 16, 2018.
Known as Michael to his family and Mike to his friends, he was a giant of a man, both in stature and in heart. He will be greatly missed and remembered always.
He was born Jan. 15, 1968, in Lewisburg, a son of Linda (Eisenhauer) Fidler of Milton and the late Charles M. Fidler Sr.
Michael graduated from Milton High School in 1986 and went on to become a licensed taxidermist.
He was a member of Radiant Light Assembly of God Church.
Michael was known for his love of the outdoors, whether it was hunting, fishing, trapping, or just watching wildlife from his porch. He was also an avid chef and enjoyed making anything from local berry jellies to Vietnamese dishes.
Michael leaves behind his wife of 28 years, Tabitha (Temple) Fidler; his children, Thor Michael Fidler, Jacob C. Hostetter, Kayleigh A. Hostetter, Carl L. Hostetter, Jr., and James Ray; a granddaughter, Rowan Herr; his mother, Linda; and his sister, Jean Marie Fidler.
He was preceded in death by his daughter, Ashley Marie Fidler; his brother, Lyle Matthew Fidler; and his father, Charles Michael Fidler Sr.
A memorial gathering will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 26, at Radiant Light Assembly of God Church, 9565 Route 442, Muncy. A short service will follow with Pastor Adam Barnes officiating.
Burial will be held privately by the family.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions in Michael's memory be made to his church.
