Michael J. Kizzer,65, of Watertown NY, passed away unexpectedly at his home on October 31, 2023.
Michael’s departure has left a void in our hearts, but his memory will forever remain in our thoughts and
He was born on October 14,1958, in Watertown, NY, the son of Leroy and Aleatha Kizzer.
Michael’s early education began at General Brown and Sackets Harbor Schools. After completing
schooling, he embarked on a career in contracting, becoming a true jack- of- all- trades. In 1975, fate
brought him together with Patricia in the 7th grade. Although they went their separate ways after
school, they reconnected in 2013 and have been inseparable ever since.
Throughout his career, Michael owned several companies and worked for himself, with his final venture
being Mecca painting. In recent years, he made the difficult decision to retire due to declining health. In
his leisure time, Michael found joy in playing his guitar, and was a member of the band North Street in
his younger years.
Michael is survived by his devoted life partner, Patricia Brown, and his cherished children: Kristina
(Michael) Rish, Pulaski, Summer (Matthew) DeCaprio, Dexter and Wayne Brown. He is also survived by
several brothers and sisters and four adoring grandchildren, Matthew Rish, Emma Rish, Ella Lane, and
Michael will be remembered for his boundless generosity and compassionate nature. He held a special
place in his heart for his beloved grandchildren, who brought him immense joy and love.
In accordance with his wishes, Michael will be cremated, and there will be no funeral services.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Johnson Funeral Home, Dexter
