Remembering Michael Alberts

Michael J. Alberts was born June 30, 1965. He passed away on the morning of January 17, 2018. Mike was born with cognitive disabilities and had many challenges in this life, but was cheerful through most of them.

Michael had been living with his oldest brother, Jan (Karen) for the past 20 years, since his mother died. Because of all the grandkids, Mike called Karen "Opoe" (Dutch for grandmother). He will be missed greatly and Karen will miss being "fired" every day by him.

Mike enjoyed the simple things of life. He liked old TV shows, especially Westerns. He liked anything Superman. He really loved his Superman watch, that he received from his nephew, Richard.

Mike attended a Day Program at TURN Community Services and loved going there every day, especially riding the shuttle. He loved his staff, Tina, and talked about her often. He also attended Special Needs Mutual in Layton. He enjoyed going each week and loved the special needs scouting program. He is missed at TURN, and everywhere he was involved.
