Michael A. “Nelson” Mallory, 65, passed away peacefully,
June 14, after a strong, brave fight with brain cancer.  He was surrounded by family.

Mike’s family and friends will remember him as a hard-worker who went above and beyond to help everyone. He loved living in Gaylord, and living on Otsego lake. Summers were spent boating, water skiing and motorcycle riding. Winters, he loved snowmobiling. Mike always took care of family and friends first!

He was preceded in death by his parents Paul and Ida (Glatfelter) Mallory.

Mike is survived by his wife Leslie (LB); daughters Marissa Mallory, Jillian Mallory, son Austin Berryman; brothers and sisters Pat (Trish) Mallory, Kathy Dornan, Jane (Bill) Hoth, Bart (Peri) Mallory, Bret (Rhonda) Mallory, and granddaughter Annika Mallory.
