MORTON - Michel B. Khouri, 76, of Morton, passed away peacefully in his home on Mon., July 23, 2018.
Michel was born on April 12, 1942, in Tripoli, Lebanon, to the late Badwi and Salwa (Daoud) Khouri. He married Mary Ann Slyman on March 22, 1969.
Surviving are his wife, Mary Ann; three children, Nicole (Rich) Khouri Radil, Reiad (Mary) Khouri, Anthony (Tonya) Khouri; and 10 grandchildren. He is also survived by one brother, Tony (Emily) Khouri of Lebanon.
He was preceded in death by his parents and four siblings.
Michel and Mary Ann spent their early years of marriage living in Galena, Ill., where he taught high school French. He later moved to Peoria where he began managing a book store, which is in line with his passion for reading. Michel owned and operated River City Café in Peoria for over 30 years. It was this part of his career that brought him the most happiness and many lifelong friendships that he cherished.
