Michael Clinton Quinn passed away Sunday, November 17, 2013 in Visalia, CA from advanced prostate cancer. He was 63 years, 364 days old. Michael was born November 18, 1949 in Long Beach, CA, the son of Bernard and Marjorie Quinn. He lived the first 10 years of his life in Wilmington, CA. In 1960 he moved with his family to Quinn's Dairy, the family farm in Torrance, CA. Michael was drafted into the US Army in 1968 and served as a medic in South Korea. After the army Michael married Sharon May of Torrance, CA and the newlyweds moved to Santa Cruz, CA where Michael raised his family and worked as a carpenter and general contractor. In 1989 he became the property manager for Hidden Villa, an educational ranch and nature preserve in Los Altos, CA. He later worked as a camp ranger for the Girl Scouts of America at the Skylark Ranch near Pescadero, CA from which he retired in 2008. Michael was always well loved, respected, and fondly remembered by those he worked with. Michael is preceded in death by his parents Bernard and Margie Quinn. He is survived by his sons Devin Quinn of Hermosa Beach, CA and Sky Quinn of Santa Cruz, CA and his daughter Leah Sita and her husband Dan Grant of Santa Cruz, CA. He is also survived by his brother Robert and his wife Annie Quinn of Visalia, CA and his sister Judie and her husband Elton Cribbs of Houston, TX as well as by many nieces and nephews. Michael was a quiet, private man, a keen reader with an insatiable appetite for knowledge, a renowned story teller with a sense of humor, so easy and expert, that those who knew him best will hear the laughs echo forever. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him. A memorial for Michael will be held at a time and place not yet determined.
