Obituary Michael (Mike) Steven Kaplafka, 65, of Belton, passed away on September 17, 2021 at home, surrounded by his family. Mike was born June 2, 1956 at the VA Hospital in Portsmouth, VA. He is the son of Michael and Bernice (Bunny White) Kaplafka. Mike was a quiet, humble man with a heart of gold that would show through his smile and could light up a room. He would give the shirt off his back to help someone else. Mike could always soothe a crying baby to sleep and loved being a father, grandfather, and uncle. He was a foster parent and father figure for many kids as well. In addition, Mike loved all sports. He coached baseball and basketball in his spare time. He served in the Navy from 1975 until 1981, serving as an electrical repairman on several ships. Mike had numerous talents while working in construction, mainly focusing on custom tile and marble setting, as well as carpentry and masonry work. In addition, he spent time working for two school districts working as both a groundsman and maintenance. Mike is survived by his wife, Sandra Mae (Gierke) Kaplafka, three children; Michael Steven II and wife Andrea, Nathan Owen, and Melissa Nicole, two grandsons Liam Brycen, and Owen Ryder Jackson; four sisters, Sandra Lowry (Richard), Sharon McCoy, Susan Sommer (Kenny), Sheila Burton (Kevin); and numerous nephews, nieces, and cousins.
