AUSTINTOWN, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – On Friday, December 17, 2021, Michael Joseph Breckner, 59, of Austintown, passed away at St Elizabeth Hospital Youngstown, surrounded by family.

He was born in Youngstown on July 24, 1962, to Michael J. and Patricia (Mussler) Breckner.

Michael spent most of his life working as a car salesman. He worked at Charles Auto Family for the past ten years, loving his job, the customers and everyone he worked with.

Michael enjoyed spending time on the beaches of Lake Erie looking for sea glass, watching the Cleveland Browns and the Cleveland Indians play, playing the lottery, fishing and perhaps one of his greatest pastimes was spending time on the back patio with his four-legged friend, Max.

Michael is survived by his children, Mason (Cortney) Breckner of Austintown and Karley Breckner of Niles; best friend and life partner, Michele Breckner of Austintown and brothers, Robert Breckner of Youngstown and Matthew Breckner of Youngstown.

Michael was preceded in death by his parents, Michael and Patricia (Mussler) Breckner.
