Michael "Mike" L. Yelvington

Great Falls - Michael "Mike" Lee Yelvington, age 63, passed away in the early hours of January 21, 2021. Michael was born on January 18, 1958, to Elizabeth Wombold and Kiahford Yelvington. He was a beloved father, grandfather, brother, and uncle, and was a trusted friend to many.

He was a retired union concrete finisher who worked for Sletten Construction for many years, and he was a member of the Little Shell Chippewa tribe. He was known as a hardworking, kind, loyal, and deeply respectful man. Though often serious and quiet, he was also quick with a joke and loved to have a good time. He enjoyed playing pool, darts, and pinball. Above all else, he loved his family.

Michael is survived by two children, Amanda (Josh) Williams and Jason Yelvington and partner, Alfredo Bracamontes-Ochoa; three grandchildren, Ajay and Brendan Khan, and Jameson Williams; four brothers, Mitch Yelvington, Mel Yelvington, Matt (Joan) Yelvington, and Dale Wombold; five sisters, Marcie (Dwight) Dahl, Mandy (Brian) Barnes, Linda McElmeel, Judy Adams, and Laurie Kelleher; and numerous nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Elizabeth Wombold; stepfather, James Wombold; father, Kiahford Yelvington; sister, Mary Birnie; and brother, Ken Yelvington.

A memorial service will be held on Tuesday, January 26, 2021, at 10:00 am at O'Connor Memorial Chapel in Great Falls, followed by a graveside service to be held at Mount Olivet Cemetery.

I have known Mike for many, many years, along with his siblings, growing up on the westside. He was always such a soft spoken and polite guy. I am sorry he passed so young and will miss seeing him at Aces.

Mike you were the most amazing Brother. This world felt a lot safer knowing you were in it and if I needed you I could call. You were there for everyone. I wish you could have been here long enough to have it all returned (that way you would be here forever) I know that you are being rewarded in heaven for all your kindness! I will see you again Big Brother, all my love Moe

Thanks for being the ultimate gentleman when we fixed you up as a blind date for our Wisconsin cousin, Tiffany. Have you seen her up there in heaven yet? We had a fun couples night out. You sure were fun to jitterbug with. ( and this is Nita talking, not Lindon!) We miss all the fun times we had together. The camping trip to Lake Francis and the big party we had at our place to celebrate the completion of our new shop were some of those fun times.
