Michael R. Bronokoski, 46, of Lancaster, passed away surrounded by his loving family on Friday, February 24, 2017 at Lancaster General Hospital. He was born in Lancaster, son of Joseph and Barbara (Butkey) Bronokoski. Mike graduated in 1990 from Hempfield High School, then served in the US Army for 4 years with B Company, 440th Signal Battalion and also served part of his duty in Germany. He enjoyed working with many friends at PPL, and IBEW Local 1600 as a lineman. He loved being with his family, especially his daughter, Hope. His favorite things to do were going to Ocean City, MD, watching movies, listening to music, and hanging with friends. His favorite teams were the Eagles and Phillies. Over the last few days, words that we heard to describe Mike were, “sweet guy”, and “one of the good ones”, and he really was. Mike also had a great laugh that will be surely missed.
