Michael David Culver

Michael (Mike) Culver, age 63, passed away on January 20th after a 2-year battle with pancreatic cancer. Mike was born on January 8, 1952 in Madison, Wisconsin, the son of Carol and David Culver.

A lifetime pilot, Mike graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and began a career in his family's electrical supply business, Culver Electric. He married Karin Evensta in 1983, and they moved to Washington shortly after starting their family, in 1987. He and Karin raised their family in Redmond and he was active in Bellevue First Congregational Church. He ran the computer system for a distribution business before moving to Microsoft to work as a software evangelist. Most recently, he worked at Amazon Web Services, where he earned the respect and esteem of his colleagues. He loved clearing his calendar on sunny afternoons to fly to Orcas Island and other places for a bite to eat. His son Patrick also became a pilot, and they flew to Alaska for a memorable vacation.

Mike is survived by his wife of 31 years, Karin Evensta of Redmond, and their children, Patrick Culver and Anna Culver. He is also survived by his son, Tom Sharp; his father David; brothers Tom and Robbie Culver; and his sisters Jo MacDonald, Joyce Clark, and Barb Alderete.

The family wishes to thank Evergreen Hospice for their care and support in the last days of Mike's life.

A memorial service will be held this Sunday, February 15, at 2:00 p.m. at Bellevue First Congregational Church, 752 - 108th Ave. NE, Bellevue. In lieu of flowers, memorials to Angel Flight are welcome. www.angelflight.com
