Michael Adam Resop
1984 - 2021
Michael was born September 22, 1984, in St Pete Beach, Florida. He attended nursery school there and shortly thereafter, moved to Bozeman, Montana. There he attended Emerson Elementary until it closed and on to Longfellow until Morning Star Elementary opened. From there he opened Sacajawea Middle and graduated from Bozeman Senior High School. Mike attended Carroll College and MSU.

He worked in several businesses in Bozeman, his favorite though was behind the counter at Kagy Korner. There he was known for his generous sized ice cream cones for the kids and their folks.

Mike was a bit of an introvert, a film critic, a writer, an avid reader and a dreamer. He was not one who cared about material possessions, but rather, make memories of times together as a family.

He was a man you could trust with a secret. Mike's God Given talent was working with numbers. He was truly a human calculator. He astonished us often with his instant answers to math problems.

As much as Mike depended on others, he was always available to those in need. He was truly like no other.

While losing him is difficult to comprehend, he will always be around us. We will always seek signs of him; a random heart rock, a beautiful sunset, or the shimmers in the snow......these things give it a whole new meaning.

If you know of someone struggling with depression or weight issues, please offer a hand to help, a simple phone call to someone you haven't spoken to in a while or give an unsolicited compliment to someone. Never hold back on the opportunity to help someone in need. Bite your tongue if you feel compelled to make fun of someone at their expense. You don't know their struggles.

Mike passed away from natural causes in Bellingham, Washington on October 30, 2021.

He is survived by his mom, Rebecca, his dad, Patrick, brother Ryan and his wife, Sophia and their daughter, Stella along with many, many aunts, uncles, cousins and great friends.

In lieu of flowers, please make any donations to the Lighthouse Mission in Bellingham, Washington in Mikes name They will be most grateful.

A celebration for Big Mike's life will be held Summer of 2022.
