Michael Eric "Mike" Rhome, 53, of Sandy Lake, passed away of natural causes on Sunday (Dec. 24, 2017) at home.
Mike was born on Nov. 25, 1964, in Monongahela, to the late Marion A. and Elva M. Adams Rhome.
He attended Lakeview Schools and was self-employed as a "Wheeler and Dealer."
Mike was a self-made man and was able to accomplish many things. His favorite phrase was "TCB... takin' care of business." He was a builder, a mechanic, and a jack of all trades. He saw the value in everything and nothing was wasted. He loved to fix and repair the oldest of cars and machines, especially his beloved Harley Davidsons and Volkswagens. He was a collector of memorabilia from small rings to motorcycles and everything in between. Mike was also a huge Elvis fan and had an Elvis collection as well.
Above all else, Mike loved his daughters and his granddaughter. He shared many great memories with not only his daughters and granddaughter, but his entire family and his dear friends, always loving to talk and carry on a conversation. He also enjoyed cooking for his family and friends and would love to see their reaction to the food he prepared.
Mike is survived by: his daughters, Ashley Rhome of Sandy Lake and Haley Taylor and her husband, Aaron Taylor, of Grove City; his dear granddaughter Ella Taylor of Grove City; the love of his life and former wife Amy Dick McClave of Sandy Lake; brother, M. Richard "Rick" Rhome of Franklin; sisters, Carolyn Collinsworth (William) of Colorado Springs, Colo., and Rita Reib, of Ft. Collins, Colo.; and his beloved cat, Bella.
In addition to his parents, Mike was preceded in death by: two best friends and brothers, Terry and Robert "Rob" Rhome; a nephew, Eric Collinsworth; his favorite uncle George Rhome; and his brother-in-law, Larry Reib.
