Michael Frederick Cesar of Gulf Breeze passed away on Sunday, March 6 surrounded by family and friends. Mike was born June 27, 1941 in Algoma, Wisconsin to Edward Frank Cesar and Arkaileen Braun Cesar. Mike attended Milwaukee School of Technology and retired from ownership of his Contract Engineering Firm, Northern Technical Services in Green Bay, Wisconsin in 1987 at the age of 46. His life reflected that of the American Dream. The pursuit of adventure and his love of fishing and the beach brought him to Gulf Breeze, Florida where everyone he met became his friend. His Florida life was filled with offshore adventures pursuing all forms of saltwater game and living life to the fullest.
