Mike Pinch
November 25, 1949 - May 29, 2021
Gig Harbor, Washington - Mike passed into the Lord's care on Saturday, May 29th, 2021.
He was born on November 25, 1949, in Seattle, Washington. A few years later, Mike's mother (Betty Pinch) moved to Spokane with her two sons Mark and Mike. The three were a small but strong family all the way through to Mike's graduation from Central Valley High School in 1968.
He is survived by his wife, Carina and his two sons Mackenzie and Casey.
Mike had five grandsons, Oliver (10), Rocky (8), Kingstin (1), Terrence (1), and Warren (2 weeks). His two sisters, Barbara Ladd and Mitzie Rubenstein, preceded Mike in passing.
The overwhelming theme of Mike's life was family. He was the patriarch. There was no such thing as sadness or criticism. There was only room for love, consistent love. All of the members of his family and his extended family have always gotten along so well. While that might be unusual in this day and age, it was Mike's leading by example that made it all work.
A celebration of Mike's life will be held at Haven of Rest Funeral Home, 8503 WA-16, Gig Harbor, Wa On Saturday June 12th, 3pm.
The family respectfully requests that in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to GIFT International; c/o 3813 Mountainview Place, Gig Harbor, Wa.

Jill and family, I am sorry for your loss.
Mike Pinch was a huge influence on my working life. Straight out of high school, I began working at Pinch's Deli. Within months, Mike had me opening the store, ordering inventory, and doing deposits. I was learning so much of the business side which has stayed with me all these years later. When Mike decided to invest in a coffee roaster, he chose me to be his apprentice. Many of the things I learned from Mike are still a part of my life today.
