Michael E. Bloomfield

November 12, 1987 ‒ May 01, 2017

Chesterville, Ohio

Michael E. Bloomfield, age 29, of Chesterville, went to be with the Lord Monday evening, May 1, 2017, at his residence.

He was born on November 12, 1987, in Galion, to his loving parents Jerry M. and Ann E. (Park) Bloomfield. Michael was a 2006 graduate of Highland High School. He later went on to attend Mount Vernon Nazarene and finished his associate’s degree from DeVry University in Computer Science. More recently, Michael completed his bachelor’s degree in Religion at Ashland University.

While in high school, Michael enjoyed singing in the choir and playing in the marching band. His senior year he earned the spot to lead the band as the field commander. He also enjoyed being in various plays and musicals throughout middle and high school.

Michael was a member of Shelby United Methodist Church. While attending there he become heavily involved with the youth group and even led the youth program. Within the last few years, Michael was excited to continue sharing his love for the Lord when he became a local pastor for the Williamsport United Methodist Church. After stepping away briefly from pastoring Michael worked alongside his father as a substitute teacher for Mount Gilead School Systems.

His love for kids was extremely prevalent within his family as well. Michael liked to be known as the “favorite uncle”. His nieces and nephew meant the world to him. He will surely be missed for his fun, caring, and loving character.

Those left to cherish his memory include his parents: Jerry and Ann; brother, David (Hope) Bloomfield of Columbus; sisters: Jennifer (James) Creps of Hilliard and Megan (Trevor) Dickerson of Mount Vernon; nephew and nieces: Jace and Jocelynne Creps and Raelynne Dickerson; and grandmother, Ruth Ann Park.

Michael was preceded in death by his grandparents: Edward Park and James Sr. and Arva Bloomfield.

His family will greet friends from 3 to 6 PM on Monday, May 8, 2017, at the Snyder Funeral Home, Craven Chapel. 67 N. Main St., Mount Gilead, OH. A service to celebrate his life will be held at 6 PM with Rev. James McDonald and Pastor Stephan Bloomfield officiating. Burial in Maple Grove Cemetery will be held privately at a later date.
