Mike was born to Ann and Joseph O'Neill in Missoula, Montana and later moved to Spokane. Mike served in the U.S. Army during the Occupation of Japan and received a G.E.D. While attending Gonzaga University, he met Antoinette Plastino. They were wed January 30, 1950. They had five wonderful children; Shannon, Colin, Shawn, Megan, and Maureen. He earned a Bachelor's Degree from Eastern Washington University, a Master's Degree from Gonzaga University, and a Doctorate in Education from Washington State University, after which, he retired from teaching in the Spokane School District for 25 years. After teaching, Mike became a Real Estate Appraiser and finally retired at the age of 65. He was preceded in death by his parents, in-laws Anthony and Leona Plastino, daughters Shannon and Megan, sisters Delores and Eileen, and his brother Joseph. He is survived by his wife and children; Colin O'Neill of Spokane, Washington, Shawn O'Neill of Todos Santos, Baja California Sur (Mexico), and Maureen (O'Neill) Crawford, Gig Harbor, Washington, his brother J. Patrick O'Neill and sister JoAnn O'Neill, four grandchildren, Antoinette O'Neill, Seattle, Washington, Stephanie, Tyler, and Dalton Crawford, many nieces, nephews, and six great-grandchildren.
