Michael Douglas Willer, 69, ended his year-long battle with cancer on December 6, 2012. He was surrounded by family at his much loved ranch in Creston, California which he often referred to as Rancho No-Rules. This courageous, humble man, leaves behind his wife of 40 years, Karen, his children, Cindy McGee (Tim) of Atascadero, Andrea Willer of Santa Cruz, and Matt Willer (Mary Megan) of Parker, Colorado. His grandchildren will miss his presence and lessons about critters, flowers, and snipe hunts at the ranch; Shandon, Mitchell, and Jack McGee, Luke Willer, and Hannah, Gracie, and Archie Willer. He will also be missed by his brother Ron Willer. He was predeceased by his parents Don and Martha Willer and his brother Donnie. Mike was born and raised in California. He attended Inglewood High School, El Camino College, UCLA, and Western State College of Law. He practiced as a CPA and attorney for the Bragg Companies for over 40 years. He was a member of Los Caballeros, southern California riding club for 22 years. He has been a long time supporter of the Creston Classic Rodeo, an annual community fundraiser. Donations may be made in his memory: Creston Classic Rodeo, PO Box 121, Creston, CA 93432.
