A military graveside service is scheduled for 2

He was born Feb. 26, 1954, in Blocken, Iowa. He
was an aircraft metals technologist, with a degree in metals technology. He also
held several certificates in welding and instruction. He was in the US Air Force
from June 1975 until his retirement in July 1989. He retired as a tech sergeant
and welding instructor. He moved to Alaska in 1979, and resided in the city of
Wasilla. Being a professional welder, one can see his touch on Providence
Hospital and Elmendorf Air Force Base. He was a life-long Baptist, but was
unable to attend services due to his illness. He received several commendations
and medals throughout his career in the Air Force. He enjoyed fishing, camping,
hunting, bowling and nature.
His family said, “Michael love nature and
wildlife. He was a loving husband, great-grandfather, grandfather,
brother-in-law, uncle and friend. He had a wonderful sense of humor, was kind
and loving in every way. He will be missed by many.”
He is survived by his loving wife, Eleanor
Scott; two great-grandchildren, two grandchildren, one stepson, one
stepdaughter, brother-in-law, sisters-in-law, many nieces and nephews, and
