Emmet A. Grifka, age 64 of Cass City, passed way Sunday, August 16, 2015 at his residence.

He was born on July 4, 1951 in Cass City, the son of Irene (Polega) Wozniak and the late Martin Grifka. He married Dona M.

Hudson on December 13, 1992 in Sandusky.

Emmet was a graduate of Ubly High School. He was a U.S. Army veteran having served during the Vietnam War. He worked road and bridge construction for several Detroit companies. He enjoyed watching and listening to the Detroit Tigers, playing cards, trips to casinos and Alabama, fishing and hunting. He truly enjoyed spending time with his family, especially giving his grandkids rides on his mule.

Emmet is survived by his wife Dona of Cass City; three children Martin J. Grifka of Alabama, Karrie (Richard) Knowlton of Alabama, John (Gwyn) Grifka of Snover; one step son Troy (Renate) Galloway; step daughter Terri and Scott Jackson of Traverse City; 11 grandchildren Britney, Corey, Troy Jr., Joseph, Jeannie, Marha, Shana, Michael, Mia, Richard and Marissa; his mother Irene Wozniak of Harbor Beach; his mother-in-law Nora David of Marlette; three brothers Larry (Sherry) Grifka, Harry Grifka and Gary Grifka, all of Snover; two sisters-in-law Edwina Hudson of Saginaw, Donella (Andrew) Buniack of Snover; many nieces and nephews.

Emmett was preceded in death by his father Martin; step father Pat; three brothers Dave, Roger and Lee Grifka; an infant sister Barb; step son, Timothy Galloway; sister-in-law Mary Grifka; and brother-in-law Clare Hudson.

The funeral service for Emmett was held at the Zinger-Smigielski Funeral Home in Ubly with military honors. Rev. Charles Hammond, pastor of Good Shepherd Parish in Ubly, officiated. Burial was at the Evergreen Cemetery.

Memorials have been requested to the Family Discretionary Fund.
