Our beloved son, husband, father and brother passed away peacefully on May 16, 2020 due to complications caused by diabetes.
He was born on April 23, 1955 in Salt Lake City, Utah. He graduated from Judge Memorial High School and the University of Utah. He worked in the Electrical and Data Communications industry for over 40 years. He was a Senior Estimator for Cache Valley Electric, his last job before getting sick. Mike was a University of Utah season ticket holder for almost 30 years. He loved golf, tailgating, and cooking. His specialties were salsa and chile verde, and he loved making delicious tamales every year at Christmas. Mike loved the holidays and being around family and friends.

Enjoyed spending my childhood years with Mike. He was a great guy with and we enjoyed a lot of laughs together. I think of him often as I reflect on our time together playing football and basketball and having some laughs.

I was in Mike's class at Judge. I was sorry to hear he had died. Our path did not cross often enough but it was always good when it did. I will miss him. My condolence to the family.
