Frank (“Mike”) Michalovich passed away on the morning of January 10, 2021 in West Hills, California due to complications from Covid 19.
Frank was born in Warren, Ohio on August 27, 1933, the son of Michael and Anastasia (Steblecki) Michalovich. He was a graduate of Warren G. Harding High School and served in the U.S. Army.
In the early 60’s Frank moved to Hollywood, California where he began a career as a prop master in the TV/motion picture industry that lasted for 37 years. He worked in TV on The Mary Tyler Moore show, Rhoda, and the Angie series. He also went on movie sets having done the prop master work for The Gathering which was filmed in 1977 on location in Hudson and Chagrin Falls, Ohio.
Frank loved socializing with his family and friends, a lively debate (in his words a “discussion”), telling jokes, and his motorcycle. He was always “up” for a new adventure.
Frank is survived by two brothers-in-law–Thomas Pardue of Warren, Ohio and John Henry Carter of Olive Hill, Kentucky; 17 nieces and nephews on the Michalovich side; 17 nieces and nephews on the Carter side; two step daughters; five grandchildren; and seven great grandchildren.
