Michael Vanscoy

Michael Vanscoy, 66, passed away peacefully on January 1, 2016 surrounded by his loved ones. He was born on August 2, 1949 in Carrol, Iowa. Michael grew up in Des Moines and attended East High where he was All-State in football and choir, graduating in 1969. After working at Firestone for many years, he attended Des Moines University and graduated with a Bachelor’s in Health Care Administration in 1995. Continuing education was very important to Michael. He was the ultimate sports fanatic, but he especially loved the Cubs and Iowa Hawkeye Football.

Michael is survived by his mother, Mary Bone; son, Chris (Shannon) Vanscoy; daughter, Michelle Wheeler; 3 grandchildren; and sisters, Marilyn, Marlys, and Lori. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Henry and Helen Moore; and father, Rex Bone.

The Cremation Society of Iowa assisted the family with a simple cremation. No formal services are planned at this time.
