Mike Kalleres

Mike Kalleres passed away in Reno, Nevada on May 7, 2018.

Mike was born on September 4, 1941 in Ely Nevada to Juanita and Thomas Kalleres.  He spent his childhood in (old) Ruth, NV attending local schools and then moving on to graduate from White Pine High School in 1960.  Mike served in the U.S. Army from 1961 to 1967 and then returned to Ely Nevada for the rest of his life.

Mike worked as a car salesman for many years of his life, having a true talent for the profession.  He held jobs with the City of Ely, State of Nevada and Suburban Propane.  Mike’s last position he held was as the City of Ely Municipal Court Judge from 2006 from 2017.  He truly enjoyed those years serving the city of Ely.

Surviving Mike is his wife of 42 years, Madeline, their three children Michael Todd (Tracy), Stephanie Crawford, and Lara Manning.  His seven grandchildren, Ryan (Kristen), Zachary, Taylor (Mat), Brianna, Jolie, Seth, and Andrew and three great grandchildren.

He is also survived by his brothers, Tom (Claudia), and David, sister in law, Carol and numerous nieces and nephews. Mike is preceded in death by his mother and father, brothers, George and Chris, and sister, Marie.

Mike’s passion was his family, especially his grandchildren.  He was a cherished husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend.  The world is a better place because he was in it.

At Mike’s request no services will be held.  There will be a celebration of his life for family and friends over the Labor Day weekend 2018.
