AIKEN, SC – Michael Stephen Fendt lost his four year battle with cancer on March 1, 2023, surrounded by his family.
He is survived by his wife, Jill Fendt (Aiken, SC); his son, Andrew Fendt (Aiken, SC); his daughter, Mikayla Fendt (Syracuse, NY); his father, Donald Fendt (Aiken, SC); and his sister, Robyn Petrone (Huntington Station, NY).
Mike began his career as an auto mechanic, then moved into being a service manager of a car dealership before finally doing renovations for homeowners. He formed the company Fendt Construction which built custom homes. He was a sought-after builder due to his quality work and hands on approach.
He will be remembered as a truly special man, loving father, son, best husband, wonderful golfer, and a true friend who was taken way too soon. He will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.
There will not be a service, but a celebration of his life will take place in the future.
Donations in his memory may be made to Gentiva Hospice, 1690 University Parkway, Aiken, SC 29801 or the Aiken County Animal Shelter, 333 Wire Rd., Aiken, SC 29801.
