Michael Joseph Gardner II

Michael Joseph Gardner II, 34, of Cochranville, passed away on Wednesday, December 16, 2020, at Lancaster General Hospital. He was a loving son, brother, and uncle.

He was born in Collingdale, Pennsylvania to Patricia and Michael Gardner. A graduate of Octorara High School, Michael spent his time after high school learning various crafts and trades, settling on plumbing during his final years. He took well deserved pride in his work and budding skills. 

Michael found immense joy in video games, television, and comics. He balanced his love for fantasy worlds with a knack for history and true crime. Above the rest, nothing put as big a smile on his face as horsing around with his nephew and nieces.

He is survived by his father, Michael Gardner, brother and sister-in-law, Kevin and Marissa Gardner, sister and brother-in-law, Courtney and Ed Elvin, as well as nephew, Georgie Elvin, and nieces, Mackenzie Gardner and Lyla Elvin. 

Service details TBD due to Covid-19 guidelines and restrictions. 

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in his memory to the St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
