Michael Lawrence Shapiro
1942 - 2017
Michael Lawrence Shapiro was born July 7, 1942 to Irving and Ceil Shapiro in buffalo, NY. In 1968 he met the love of his life, Sharon Shapiro and in 1972 moved to Boonville, CA and built a home on his treasured piece of property in a community that he loved. He is survived by his 3 sons, Ben, David and Gabe who he was extremely proud of. As well as, their wives Sarah, Amy, Lyell and his six grandchildren that he adored, Liliah, Abby, Noah, Levi, Skyler and Micah. He also is survived by his sister Judy Morse and his precious extended family. Michael was a real estate broker and developer throughout Mendocino County and a very proud community member of what he termed "paradise". He loved splitting firewood, fishing in his pond, gardening, watching wildlife, attending his boys sporting events and creatively solving problems. There will be a celebration of his life at the Mendocino Fairgrounds Apple Hall at 12:30pm this Friday, March 24th. Arrangements are under the direction of the Eversole Mortuary.

I knew Michael on a professional level; he was a shrewd businessman. He had a big heart and loved his community.

Words on a screen cannot begin to describe the power and vitality that Michael exuded. He was a force forever and will be remembered with a smile always.

Mike and some buddies formed the Rural Institute back in the '70s. It was the RI, together with the Ukiah Community Center, that introduced the Simple Living Workshops (reprised in recent years as the Not So Simple...). Mike loved rural living. In fact, this may be the first time I've seen him in a suit. Rest in Peace, Mike.
