Michael B. Ptak, age 76, of Bird St., Westfield, died Sunday, Aug. 13, 2017 at St. Vincent Hospital in Erie, Pennsylvania. The son of the late Frank and Victoria (Winters) Ptak, Mike was born on Sept. 10, 1940 in Cleveland, Ohio.

A Westfield area resident for most all his life, Mike had been a machinist for Renold Inc. for more than 40 years. He was an avid collector of Die Cast Antique Model Cars. He enjoyed puttering around his home and loved being with his grandchildren. He loved his family.

Mike was a very active, hard-working man, however, for the last 11 years he fought a hard battle with Parkinson's disease.
