Miguel "Mike" Palomares Obituary
Miguel "Mike" L. Palomares

Mike Palomares passed away on May 20, 2013. Mike was born on April 20, 1921 to Ignacio Palomares and Ventura Lopez in Indio, CA. Mike was a barber for 62 years in Long Beach, CA, retiring just four years ago at the age of 88. Mike, a World War II veteran like three of his brothers, served as a military policeman. Mike's son, Michael Palomares Jr., passed away in 2009. Mike is survived by his two daughters: Susan Bordofsky and Elaine Martinez. He is also survived by three grandchildren, two great grandchildren, numerous nieces and nephews, cousins, and hundreds of friends made during his 92 years of residence in Southern California. A highlight for Mike was a trip to Spain where he toured Barcelona and then traveled to the southern seaside town of Palomares to trace his ancestry. When he asked a local citizen what had happened to all the Palomares', he was told all the smart ones had left years ago. Please visit Mike's memorial page at www.pacificviewcalifornia.com or the guestbook at www.dailybreeze.com/obits. A Celebration of Life gathering will be held on June 8, 2013 from 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM at the Best Western, Golden Sails Hotel in Long Beach, CA., 6285 East Pacific Coast Highway, Long Beach, CA 90803. Phone # (800) 762 - 5333.
