Michael Henry Wiegenstein, 76, of Melbourne, Florida, died at his residence on Sunday, February 3, 2019 surrounded by loving family. He was born September 26, 1942, in Pensacola, Florida, the son of Henry G. Wiegenstein and Majorie Burgess Mills.
Michael served in the United States Navy as a Submariner. Mike and his lovely wife, Carol, owned and managed the sports bar “Penny-Annie’s” for several years. Mike retired from maintenance work and enjoyed his time with family. Mike was a joy to all with a quick wit, infectious laugh and when he smiled his eyes twinkled. Mike and Carol both adored and found great love in the raising of their grandchildren, Michelle and Lawrence Welch.
