Michael Thomas Husar, 63, a native of Springfield, Illinois, passed away in Fort Wayne, Indiana on September 15, 2022, his parents’ 66th anniversary. He battled cancer for 3 ½ years.
He was born on August 24, 1959, to Martin Thomas and Mary Margaret Husar. He was welcomed by his sister Catherine Marie. He was later joined by three brothers, David Lee, John Joseph, and James William. He grew up in Fort Wayne, Indiana. He graduated from Bishop Luers High School in 1978 and joined the Air Force, like his father, upon graduation. While in the Air Force, he met Jeana who was also in the Air Force. They were married on November 29, 1986, in Panama City, Florida. In 1991, he got his master’s at the Air Force Institute of Technology;
thus, becoming the second person in his family to earn his master’s after his mother. He was an engineer who specialized in stealth technology development. On January 28th , 1993, he and Jeana welcomed their son, Aaron Michael. As a father, his hobbies included riding bikes, making home videos, watching movies and playing games. He always loved playing Risk and watching sports with his family. He valued education and was proud to watch his son become the third person in his family to earn his master’s in 2021. Most importantly, he believed in the power of
prayer. Besides his father, he is survived by his son Aaron Husar; his sister Cathy Bell; his brothers Dave (Colleen) Donovan and their children Glenn and Tara, John (Cindy) Husar, Jim (Jen) Husar and their children Laura and Seth; cousins John (late Andrea) Sanks, Joanne (late Ray Michael and late Gerald Johnston), and Barbara (late Duke
Applegate); Aaron’s mother and stepfather Jeana and Dwayne Hale; Aaron’s grandmother Jean Claire Trahan; and many friends. Besides his mother, he was preceded in death by his brother-in-law Greg Bell; his aunt and uncle Joanne Lenihan and Clinton Sanks; his maternal grandparents John Joseph and Marie Scheef Lenihan; his paternal grandparents
Catherine Ryan and Jack Fahnstrom, and John Husar. He wished to be where his son could visit him and therefore requested that his funeral service be conducted at the
Biloxi National Military Cemetery in Mississippi.

John 14:5-6 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? Jesus
saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

John 20:27-29 Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God. Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.
