Industrial technology consultant Michael Edward Lansing died unexpectedly. He was 69 and a resident of Janesville, Wisconsin.
Lansing was known by many in the domestic mattress manufacturing industry and served as longtime consultant to Serta (now Serta Simmons Bedding) and, more recently, to Serta licensee Serta Restokraft, where he was manufacturing engineer manager.
According to an obituary written by family members, Lansing “found a strong sense of accomplishment in a job well done, and enjoyed a successful career in industrial engineering. He was an innovator of labor standards, material controls, production planning and manufacturing methods throughout the United States.”
He held multiple graduate and undergraduate degrees in industrial safety, industrial technology, business administration and business management.
Lansing is predeceased by his parents Ann and Edward. Survivors include sisters Julie Panke and Pamela Smestad and their families.
Lansing was passionate about golf and his family asked that others remember him by playing a round in his honor.
