Feb. 15, 1944- Nov. 11,2012
Resident of San Jose
After a courageous battle with cancer, Mike E. Enriquez passed away in his home with his wife, children, grandchildren and sister by his side. Mike was born in Worland, Wyoming raised in Moxee, Washington and has since resided in California for more than 40 years. Mike was a dedicated salesman for 38+ years until his illness forced him into retirement. He is survived by his wife of 40 years Julie, children Tammy Combs (Steve Colcord), Darrell Telschow (Helen), Peggy Jensen (Bill), his 11 grandchildren, and 1 great-granddaughter all of whom affectionately called him "Gramps". Uncle Mike was a surrogate grandfather and father figure to his many nieces and nephews who looked to him for guidance. He was also a kind and generous brother to his 7 surviving siblings and his wife's 3 sisters. For his 70th birthday, his family and friends gathered to celebrate and express their appreciation for him while he was still with us. His unwavering compassion and larger than life personality will be greatly missed by everyone. A private service has been planned by his loved ones to celebrate his life.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Hospice of the Valley who provided much comfort to Mike and his family.
