Obituary


Michael Thomas Najor, 45, of Chesterfield, Michigan, passed away unexpectedly Sunday May 31, 2020. He is survived by his beloved wife of 16 years, Holli (Kukan), and two beautiful children, Chad(9) and Lea(8). Cherished son of Christine Najor and preceded in death by his father Michael Najor. Dear sister, Jennifer Flore (Michael), and their children, Ethan and Grace. Michael is also survived by his mother-in-law, Rosemary Sheets, his brother-in-law, Keith Esposito, many aunts, cousins, and close friends. 
Michael was a Paramedic/ Special Operations Supervisor/ Alternate Supervisor at Medstar, a member of the Macomb County Mobile Field Force, a Reserve Police Officer, and a Firefighter at New Haven Fire Department. He was a leader by every definition. He led many important events and projects; including disaster relief efforts, SANG Air Shows, multiple city fireworks. Michael took pride in all of his work and it was shown in every detail.  
Michael had a giving soul. If someone asked him for help, he’d immediately spring into action. There didn’t seem to be a job that surpassed his ability or expertise. He could do it all and fix it all. Whether it was rebuilding a boat, car, motorcycle, helping a friend move or fixing a furnace, Michael always gave a hundred and ten percent. His passion for hard work was amazing for all to see and he was a true inspiration to others. 
 
Michael cared deeply for his family. When he wasn't at work, he was spending time with them. Throughout their 22 years together, Michael and Holli traveled to Las Vegas, Myrtle Beach, Los Angeles, numerous vacations to Florida and the Dominican Republic. Disney family vacations became a tradition for them. Michael spent countless hours on the lake boating and fishing with Holli and their children. He loved teaching them all how to fish. His unique love for "old man" music was authentic. He adored supporting Lea at her gymnastics meets and Chad at his soccer games. He couldn't have been more proud of them. Michael loved surprising Chad and Lea with new gifts of fun toys. Memories of butterfly kisses, movie nights, and family vacations will be forever engraved in their hearts. 
Michael was a great man, husband, father, son, friend, and a hero to many. Memories of Michael will live on in our hearts forever.
