Mike passed away at home on April 1 after many years of suffering with Hepatitis C and Pancreatitis.
Mike joined his Grandparents in Heaven. He leaves behind his father, Gerald Ainsworth, mother Barbara Lundstrom and stepfather Donald L Lundstrom, three brothers; Craig (Jana) Ainsworth, Bryon Ainsworth and Rick Lundstrom and a favorite niece Alisha Lundstrom, three children, 6 nephews and nieces, 6 great-nephews and nieces.
Mike loved traveling, living every minute of his life, camping in his RV, fishing, flying kites, snow boarding, playing on the beach, but most of all playing jokes on his family and friends. Mike was always the first person to set up and help complete a project or lend a hand. Mike worked for Palm Harbor and Golden West as a Trouble Shooter traveling 4 states. Mike was contracted by Palm Harbor to move to Oahu and Molokai to set up two story manufactured homes. He spent over three years on the Islands. He loved living there and did not take long before he became one of the Locals. Upon moving back to the states he moved into Management with Palm Harbor. Within two years he was diagnosed with Hepatitis C. Mike spent his last years collecting Indian artifacts, agates, taking trips to the ocean and walking on the beach with his beloved Boston Bull (Bandit) and spending time with his Family. He will be forever in our hearts and missed by everyone who touched his life. A Memorial will be held in August in Tenino Washington.
