Michael Edward Grusholt, age 61, of White Plains, Maryland, passed away suddenly and unexpectedly at home on Tuesday, November 19, 2019. Born January 1, 1958, in La Plata, Maryland, he was the son of the late Willy Duro Grusholt, Jr. and the late Maxine O'Bier Grusholt.
In his early career, he worked at the Automotive Warehouse Corporation in Bladensburg, Maryland. He then worked at Yates Automotive in Waldorf, Maryland, before beginning his over 25 year career as an automotive mechanic with the United States Capitol Police. He enjoyed sports from an early age, and continued playing soccer and baseball all the way through his high school years and beyond. On the weekends he spent time tinkering in his garage and riding his tractor to mulch leaves and mow grass, as well as watching college football, especially the Maryland Terrapins.
One of his hobbies was collecting coins and poker chips from casinos for his display case. He was a graduate of the Class of 1976 from Crossland High School in Temple Hills, Maryland. As an avid golfer, he thoroughly enjoyed annual golf trips and his time on the golf course, especially when he could reunite with his brother Willy and his lifelong buddies, the "Lee" boys. Above all, he was a devoted and loving husband, father, brother, uncle, cousin, and a loyal friend to many.
He is survived by his wife and partner of 41 years, Patricia Ann, his daughters, Nicole Marie and Kelly Ann, son, Kyle Edward, brother and sister-in-law Willy Duro Grusholt, III. (Donna), sister-in-laws Josephine P. Rosenbaum (Bill) and Glydon R. Reeves (Larry), his friend, partner-in-crime and mother-in-law, Glydon Ann DeFelice, and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews. He also leaves behind his loyal companion Peanut, and his loving playmates and grandpups, Reese, Melo and Zayn and grandkitten Ash.
