Myron 'Mike' Peltz was the Grand Marshal of the 2005 Nautical Festival Parade in Rogers City.

Mike Peltz named grand marshall of summer festival parade

"It is quite an honor when I look back at the list. To be included in that group of people--and I knew all of them--is an honor. I really appreciate that," said Myron (Mike) Peltz in response to his selection as the grand marshal for the 2005 Nautical City parade. Mike Peltz has built a life around helping others, beginning in the early days of the local bowling alley where he was paid $1.50 a night to set pins, keep score or sit in the foul line box. Much of his life has been doing service for people either in jobs he has had or the many organizations he has given his time to over the years.
Following graduation from high school in 1949, he continued working at his father's hardware store in what is now the Hiedemann building on South Third Street. Father Emil, a prominent state representative,who served the area from 1944 until his death at age 58 in 1960, had sons Wally and Mike to run the store while he served in Lansing. "He would have gone a long ways in state government had he lived longer. When he died he was pretty powerful down there. He served as chairman of the roads and bridges committee, and the conservation committee," he said.

Without the influence of Rep. Emil Peltz, the Mackinaw Bridge might never have been built. "The bridge was a done deal. It was gone. There wasn't going to be a bridge and he somehow, as politics goes, "blackmailed" the other side, politically. Even the people who wanted to build the bridge couldn't believe that he saved the bridge," Mike said. BELIEVING THE draft was inevitable, Mike enlisted in the U.S. Army, spending time stateside from 1951-1953. "I didn't want to wait for the draft, I just wanted to go in on my own," he said. When he got out of the Army, he went back to work at the hardware store. After that he had a bottled gas business, then went to work with the Rogers City Power Company before it was bought out by Consumers Power.

In 1965, he went to work as a policeman for Rogers City. He served several years before joining the county sheriff's department. In 1976 he became undersheriff for sheriff Duane Badder then became sheriff after Badder was fatally wounded on the job in 1979. He brought stability to the force which had just lost its leader in a terrible incident. Peltz successfully ran for sheriff in 1980 and was defeated in the 1984 election.

BEYOND HIS work in serving people, Mike's life has been full with volunteer jobs of all kinds. He served as a manager, coach and chief of umpires for many years in the early days of the Rogers City Little League program. "My dad, years ago, did all of the fireworks. Then Wally and I were in charge of not only purchasing the fireworks but firing them. We did that for 30 years, probably," he said. As a member of the Rogers City Serviceman's Club, he served several terms as president. For many years he has been Officer in Charge at the Memorial Day observance. He was in on the ground floor of the local chapter of the Big Brothers and Big Sisters and has served on the Nautical City Festival committee.

FOR MANY YEARS he has served as president of the Rogers City Optimist Club, helping organize many events for the area's youth. Mike raised the money for the Korean War Memorial, which is on the courthouse lawn in Rogers City. He worked on the design and construction of the memorial. "It was overdue and relatively easy to get done. The committee had no idea how to raise the funds, so I said give me a week. I went out in a week's time and I had the money," Mike said. The fund drive had money left over, which the local group sent to the World War II Memorial in Washington, D. C. "Word got around that I was doing that and I kept getting checks after we had reached our goal," he said. "I'm proud of that. It is a nice memorial."

FOR FUN, MIKE has always enjoyed bowling, earning local "bowler of the year" honors five times. He still bowls in leagues, carrying a 180-plus average. "I started working in that bowling alley when it was built. I started working for Frank Buza and Chief Mertz. I set pins, kept score, sat in the foul box, and worked the candy counter as a young kid. All of the older guys were in the war, so the younger kids had a good opportunity to work," he said. Married to his wife Barb for 52 years, his main love is his family. "I really enjoy my family and my grandkids," he said. They have two daughters, Marcia and Jenny, and two sons, Randy and Terry.

THEY HAVE EIGHT grandchildren, the oldest of whom, Steven, is serving in the Navy's nuclear submarine program. "Everyone needs grandpas. The trouble is they are old when you get them and they don't last too long," he mused. For the past 20 years Mike has had a second career working as an assistant for Beck Funeral Home in Rogers City.

"I just like to help people. Wherever there is something going on I just like to help. I enjoy fixing things, too. I've been fixing things for people for 50 years and people are still calling me," he said. Come festival parade time in August, people will have a chance to honor one who has helped many over the years.

    689.  Rev. Galen Erwin Grulke (Ervin Richard Paul5, Adolph Carl Friedrich4, Auguste Fredericke Henriette3 Schalk, Johann2, Jackob1, Schalk OriginalA Entries) was born March 25, 1945 in Rogers City, Michigan.  He married Patricia Winright December 30, 1972.  She was born October 17, 1951.
 
Galen Erwin Grulke was baptized 22 April 1945 by Rev. Donald E. Heck in St. Michael's Evangelical Lutheran Church of Belknap.  His godparents were Walter Bruning and Leora Grulke.

Galen Ervin Grulke was born on March 25, 1945, in Roger's City, Michigan, and one of the seven children of Elaine and Ervin Grulke.  He attended St. John's Lutheran School during his elementary years.

In 1959 Galen moved to Saginaw, Michigan, where he spent his high school years at Michigan Lutheran Seminary.  After high school graduation in 1963, he was accepted as a member of the first class enrolled at the newly-constructed Concordia Lutheran Junior College in Ann Arbor (now Concordia University).  The last two years of his college work were spent at Concordia Teachers' College in River Forest, Illinois, from which he graduated in 1967 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in elementary education.

Galen's first teaching assignment was at Trinity Lutheran School in Jackson, Michigan, where he served sixteen years.  It was during this time that he met his loving wife, Patricia and were blessed with two children -  Courtni (a 1998 graduate of the University of Michigan) and Travis (a 2001 graduate of Concordia University, Ann Arbor).

In 1983 Galen accepted a teaching position at Lutheran High East, one of the Lutheran high schools in the Detroit area.  A few years later he accepted a Call to Community Lutheran Church in Flat Rock, MI, where he served as their Director of Discipleship with Christian Education, Family Life Ministry, Assimilation of New Members, Membership Involvement, and Spiritual Gifts Ministry as his main areas of responsibility.

In the fall of 1988 the Grulke family moved back to Jackson, and Patti again entered the Day Care business to help support the family while Galen commuted to Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, Indiana, where he completed his requirements for the pastoral office of the ministry.  Weekends during his seminary studies were spent as the Worship Leader for the new mission congregation, Grace Lutheran Church in Leslie, just north of Jackson.

With his seminary requirements completed, Galen was assigned to do his vicarage in a mission congregation just south of Alpena, Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Ossineke, MI.  After the completion of his vicarage, Galen was called to St. John's Lutheran Church in Waltz, MI, just north of Monroe, as their Missionary at Large to plant a new congregation in northern Monroe County.  On June 30, 1991, Galen was ordained as a pastor in the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod.  Pastor Galen and Patti worked with a core of dedicated people from St. John's-Waltz and a number of individuals from some of the other Lutheran churches in the Monroe area to birth a new mission congregation - Christ Our Shepherd Lutheran Church.

In February of 1997 Pastor Galen accepted the Call to be the Senior Pastor of Trinity - Jackson, the very congregation he began his full time church work as a teacher in 1967, thirty years earlier. The passion to plant a new church led Pastor Galen to accept a Call in January 2002 from Shepherd of the Lakes in Brighton to serve as their Mission Developer/Church Planter.  Through the effort and energy of the mother congregation and a dedicated core of mission-minded families, Heart of the Shepherd was birthed the weekend of September 7/8, 2002.  Pastor Galen now serves as this new mission church's first pastor.

Heart of the Shepherd thanks and praises God that Church Extension Fund in June 2004 agreed to partner with them financially in the construction of their Phase I Mission Headquarters on Burkhart Road, a multi-purpose facility completed in the fall of 2005.  This new Mission Headquarters serves as their Family Life-Worship-Child Development Center.  Pastor Galen and Patti eagerly look forward to the ways God will guide and move the Family of God here at Heart of the Shepherd in the use of this facility in living out their Mission Statement:
GO - with passionate, Spirit-given power - AND MAKE DISCIPLES by boldly speaking, living, and loving God's Word into the hearts and lives of others.

"God has truly been good to my family and me throughout these many years," Pastor Galen says, "but especially during the transition from teacher to preacher.  He's blessed me with a lovely wife, Patti, who has put up with me for nearly  thirty-five years and has worked beside me every step of the way...Words can't express our gratitude for God's precious gifts of our daughter - Courtni (who serves as the Director of our church's Child Development Center) and her husband Kevin, the proud parents of our first grandson - Mason Blue, and for our son - Travis (Principal at Redeemer in Cuyahoga Falls, OH) and his wife Lori (Kindergarten teacher at Redeemer), the proud parents of our first granddaughter - Mallory Mae and for the privilege of being their loving parents and blessed grandparents.  Thankfulness fills my heart as I think about the many dear friends He's placed in our lives and in the life of our family…By His gracious kindness and forgiveness, God has led, guided, equipped and prepared me to be a loving husband, caring father and grandfather, sincere friend, a passionate church planter and faithful pastor whom He forgives daily when I fail Him, my loved ones, and others…Yes, God is good…May the Shepherd's heart of love and compassion empower our hearts, lives, and churches for Christlike, loving action!"

The following words of God give Pastor Galen encouragement, comfort, and assurance: "Don't be frightened by the size of the task; be strong and courageous and get to work, for the Lord your God is with you, and He will see to it that everything is finished correctly" (1 Chronicles 28:20).

Pastor Galen has served on various District boards and has had the privilege and honor to serve as the Junior and/Senior Counselor to the Michigan District's Lutheran Women's Missionary League during 1994-1998.
