Tribute & Message From The Family

With deepest sorrow, we announce that Michael Robert Fiori, age 25, our beloved son, brother, family member, and friend passed away on August 14, 2019.
A funeral service for Mikey will be held 10:30 am Saturday, August 17, 2019 at Memorial Services of Iowa Funeral Home, (4208 N Ankeny Blvd). A visitation will be held from 4-7pm, Friday, August 16, 2019 also at the funeral home.
"Mikey" was born March 12, 1994, in Des Moines, Iowa to Rob and Shari Fiori. He graduated from North Polk High School in 2012 and was employed at Hicklin Power Sports.
Those who knew Mikey, even just a little, knew that he loved life and lived it to the fullest! In his free time, it brought him joy to spend time with his family and friends, taking trips to Chicago, hiking in the mountains, visiting Colorado, playing video games and he was avid fan of cars and motorcycles.
He built heart felt relationships with everyone he met and had a special love for his cat "Kitty" and his dogs, "Simba" and "Bob". Mike was a loyal friend and believed the best in everyone! What you saw was always what you got with Mike! He was a generous, fun loving and easy-going person. He had so much goodness and an extreme amount of happiness with a very bright future. The world is definitely a lesser place without him.
Mikey will be dearly missed. He survived by his parents Rob and Shari, brothers Noah and Max, his sister Kailey (Lance) Keltner, nephew Easton Keltner, and Grandma Connie Rauenhorst.
It doesn't matter how long you live, what matters is how you live. Mike lived his life how he wanted.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to A-Heinz 57, in DeSoto, Iowa.


Condolence & Memory Journal

I went to high school with him. He always was an energetic guy who applied himself. I know a lot of my former classmates will miss him a lot.

One of my few memories of him would be how after speedily finishing his assignments in certain classes, he'd pull out a device or utilize one nearby to play online games.

I didn't know him a whole lot, but I wish he was still here. He didn't deserve this.

I didn't know Mikey well, I didnt spend time with him or hanging out - but, I used to talk to Mikey when I went to his work - He was always always genuine and nice without an agenda. He asked my about everything I was doing to my motorcycle and was excited for me and such.

But the memory that sticks out to me is the Saturday morning, I took my son and daughter in with me to pick up some parts at the counter - Mikey and my son struck up a conversation, my son told him about how well he can balance, which he can thanks to the Strider and Mikey hi-fi'd him and just got my son excited about riding and asking him if he was going to ride a motorcycle like his dad and which motorcycle he liked her etc. He encouraged my daughter too and told her to get some free hot chocolate...He was great with them, gave them attention and again was totally genuine.

My heart goes out to the family and friends of Mikey! He is in a better place!

As a father who lost his 25 year old daughter last year near this time I feel your pain. As a new employee at TMA/Chemnet I want you to know I am here for you in the future should you ever need a person willing to simply listen.
Finding a purpose in your life that is connected in some way with Michael will never replace him, but it will help with healing from your loss.

My sincere regrets,
