Mike was born to Alice and Gene Williams who preceded him in death. He is survived by his daughter, Rachel Largent and grandson William of Thompson Falls and two sisters and two brothers who reside in Western Washington.
Mike attended All Saints Catholic School in Puyallup, Wash. through his ninth grade year and graduated from Puyallup High School in 1968.
Mike married Judy Norman in 1972 and they later divorced but stayed friends and together co-parented their only child, Rachel who meant the world to him.
Mike started his career of power and lineman work in 1973 working at the "flume" for Puget Power in Kapowsin, Wash. Later, he was able to transfer to lineman work in Puyallup and then Lacey, Wash. Finally, during the last few years before he retired in 2004, he did contract work for Potelco as a foreman before moving to Thompson Falls to be near his lifelong best friend and hunting partner Bob Hicks of Plains who preceded him in death and family.
Mike had an unending love of the outdoors. He enjoyed many hunting and fishing excursions in Canada, Alaska and many other areas. In Thompson Falls he made many friends and spent his days fishing, hunting, exploring and taking in the beauty of Sanders County.
Mike enjoyed a fulfilling life that many men could only dream of. He was a husband, a father, a grandfather and friend to many.
A celebration of life will be held this summer.
