Mikal Ames Wersland Obituary
Mikal Ames Wersland, 47, quietly passed on Sunday, September 2, 2018. Born January 23, 1971 to Swen and Dora Wersland, he was the second of seven children. A Father, Son, Brother and Friend, Mike impacted thousands by the way he lived and served. Mike was a Guide, Provider, and fierce Protector to his family, friends, and the community. To his family and friends, Mike filled the role of comedian and jokester, often bringing everyone to tears laughing; a trait he never lost. Mike graduated from Viewmont High School in Bountiful, Utah in 1989. He served a two-year mission for the LDS Church in Los Angeles, California where he learned to love the polynesian people and developed a passion for helping troubled youth. Mike is a retired police officer after more than 23 years of selfless and exemplary service, having worked with the University of Utah, South Salt Lake City, DEA, SWAT, and finally the Unified Police Department. Mike was an inventor and entrepreneur his whole life. His most recent invention (www.throttlemaxx.com) makes the often bumpy side-by-side ATV ride a little more enjoyable. Typical of Mike, who often made the bumpy road of life a little more enjoyable for everyone that knows him.
He was married for 18 years to Jennice Oldroyd Wersland. He is survived by his children Jordan (25), Brooke (15), Katie (13), and Alex (10); his parents, Swen and Dora Wersland; siblings Jason Wersland, Michelle Kunze, Kirk (Jamie) Wersland, Lance (Nicholle) Wersland, Alex Wersland, and Timalee (Rolynn) Snow. "You were gone too soon!"
Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m., Saturday, September 8, 2018 at the Centerville North Stake Center, 1461 North Main, Centerville, where a viewing will be held Friday evening from 6:00-8:00 p.m. and Saturday morning 9:45-10:45 am at the church prior to services.
