Michael Christopher “Mike” Kardos
Michael Christopher “Mike” Kardos, age 39, of Dover, DE, and formerly of Bear, DE, passed away on Tuesday, January 5, 2021.
To know Mike was to love Mike. His infectious smile, awesome laugh and love for life has touched so many people’s hearts. Mike’s compassion for others and animals was uncanny and people describe him as the most crazy, sweet, loveable guy they ever met who would give you the shirt off his back. He had an endless number of friends because of his kind heart, bigger than life personality and sense of humor that could lift anyone up. Mike loved his family in good times and bad and no words can describe the bond with his twin, Brian. We could list the important people in his life, but the list is long, and we all know who they were from friends and family to bosses and Mentors. He also has loved ones who he has lost and cared about dearly and will be reunited with.
Mike was a thrill seeker and loved everything that had to do with the outdoors and motors. He was an avid hunter both with bow and rifle and fisher both in the Chesapeake and deep sea, or anywhere there was water. Mike was so great at everything he did, from his job to his many amazing hobbies, which included: hunting, fishing, racing cars, boats, helicopters, RC cars and basically anything with a motor. He could take anything apart and put it back together, just for fun or to put it back together faster than the last time. Mike was an incredible son, brother, uncle, and friend who was a caring soul and will never be forgotten.
Mike is survived by his mother, Elizabeth M. “Betty” (Windsor) Volzone (Michael) of Newark; father, Joseph A. Kardos, Jr. (Sandi) of Elkton, MD; siblings, Tammy M. Kardos of New Castle, Joseph A. Kardos III of Chapel Hill, NC, Christina A. Kardos of Ranson, WV and Brian M. Kardos (Ashley) of Hockessin; and nieces and nephews, Joe, Sydney, Cameron, Mason, Katelyn, Alyssa, Emily and Joey.
All services will be held privately.
