Michael Eugene Endom
February 15, 1954 - August 25, 2013
It is with sadness that his family announces the passing of Michael "Mike" Endom. Mike suffered a brief and unexpected illness on Auguat 25, 2013. He was surrounded by his siblings and friends when he went peacefully into Gods arms to join his parents. Mike was born to Donald Endom and Mary Endom in Santa Monica California on February 15, 1954. He enjoyed a childhood growing up on Avenue F in Redondo Beach, graduating from St. Lawrence Martyr Catholic School, and then Redondo Union High School in 1972. In his adult years Mike worked for several manufacturers in the South Bay. He most liked working as a bartender at some of the South Bays most well-known neighborhood bars. He enjoyed the company of his patrons and shared his firm opinions in lively political discussions. Mike most recently worked at the Starboard Attitude on the Redondo Beach Pier and appreciated the courtesies the owner, Ed Castro, afforded him. He maintained lifelong friendships and made new friends every day. He remained always loyal to family and friends. Mike was a true 'son' of Redondo Beach who enjoyed walking along the Esplanade to get to work. He loved music, movies, and current events. He was a prolific writer and often shared his opinion with 'letters to the editor'. He is survived by his siblings and their spouses, Mary Krahn (Vernon), Melissa Murray (Russell), and Steve Endom (Gina). His memory also continues in the hearts of many nieces, nephews, extended family, and many dear friends. Roger Evans and John Riley shared close friendship with Mike for many years. His siblings appreciate both their long associations with Mike and their concern for him in his final days. Mike was preceded in death by his mother, Mary Endom; and father, Donald Endom. Mike was a gentle and social soul, a beloved friend, brother, son, uncle & great uncle. He will be missed. A celebration of life is being hosted by The Starboard Attitude Bar on the Redondo Beach Pier on Sunday, September 8, 2013 from 1 PM to 7 PM. Please join his family and friends for an afternoon of remembrance. Please sign the guestbook at www.dailybreeze.com/obits.
