Michael A. Ciuchta, 73, passed away on October 4, 2023, at his home in Frankford, Delaware with his family by his side. Michael succumbed to his battle with blood cancer after a courageous fight of 6 years.

Michael was born on May 9, 1950 in Baltimore, MD, to Milton and Helen Ciuchta. He graduated from St. Martin's High School in 1968 and went on to earn a degree from Towson University in 1972.

Michael married his high school sweetheart, Carolyn, on November 23, 1974 at Holy Rosary Church in Baltimore. The couple had 2 children, Ryan and Kaitlyn.

Michael was best known for his charm and jovial demeanor. He had a creative passion and love for both interior and floral design. He was an avid gardener, arts patron, history buff, beach enthusiast and animal lover. Ever the consummate host, Michael loved nothing more than to entertain his family and friends in his home.

Michael is survived by M. Carolyn Ciuchta - wife, Ryan C. Ciuchta - son, (Elizabeth A. Rubacha - daughter-in-law), Kaitlyn M. Ciuchta - daughter, Samantha M. Ciuchta - niece. Michael is preceded in death by Milton S. Ciuchta - father, Helen T. Ciuchta - mother, Steven J. Ciuchta - brother.

I traveled each and every highway
And more, much more
I did it, I did it my way"
