Ernest "Mickey" Trautz

Gone from our sight, but never from our hearts.

Ernest R. “Mickey” Trautz, 73, departed on May 19, 2022.

Mickey was born on December 22, 1948 to the late Ernest H. and Marie T. Trautz. He grew up in Philadelphia, PA with his sisters Joyce and Patricia.

He proudly served in the U.S. Army from 1968 to 1974 as a Cannoneer in the Artillery Unit and Received the National Service Medal Sharpshooter m-14 m-16.

He was an extremely hard worker, dedicated and determined to provide for his family and give them the life they deserved. He worked in refrigeration for a few years before making a career as an Importer/Exporter for Yeches & Eichenbaum where he retired to Elysburg in the early 2000's. There he spent time with family, helped friends, and was the best friend to his beloved dog, Juno.

His interests and talents were vast and varied. He loved to shoot pool and enjoy a cold beer. Mickey could fix or build anything, he truly was a real life McGuyver! He loved classic movies and oldies music. He loved cars and motorcycles. He loved to cook. He also loved to eat, some of his favorites were an Italian Hoagie, a Philly Cheesesteak, Soft Pretzels, and Jelly Donuts. He was a professional prankster. He got a kick out of performing Magic Tricks. But above all he loved to make people laugh and he truly was the best joke teller, he never missed a punchline. 

Everyone that knew Mickey, knew that he was an extremely kind, giving person and that he loved his family very much. He is survived by his Son, Michael (Jenny) and Daughters, Jennifer Majka, Susan, and Rebecca Schmidt (Joey). He was the proud Pop of his 10 Grandchildren and Pop Pop to his 5 Great Grandchildren.

He also leaves behind loving cousins, nieces, nephews, brother in law and cherished friends.
