His work ethic was put into place at an early age caring for his younger brothers and sister, which continued until his body would no longer allow him the privilege of work. He was a gifted mechanic by trade and his talents were sought by many. More often than not his fee was “I’ll catch you next time.”
Mike was large in stature which was necessary to house his even larger heart. He was an advocate for the young, showed compassion to the elderly, and had great appreciation and respect for women.
Through severe female persuasion he became an avid Utah Jazz fan. Another much loved hobby was reading and babysitting his grandchildren and Granny Fae.
Mike’s appreciation for life was so strong that Wednesday night when it became apparent he was going to lose his battle, several doctors and staff, who had become his friends, came to express the great strengths he had displayed throughout his medical trials.
Mike was the father of four children, Sheila Thompson, Michelle (Lupe) Lara, Lisa (Shawn) Beltz and Michael (Brianne) Ash, Jr. Along the way he inherited four more children, Marc (Amanda) Nelson, Holly Nelson, Brian (Peggy) Braegger, and Heather (Travis) Hawkes. He was Papa to 17 grandchildren. His custom made chocolate chip pancakes will never be quite the same.
Mike was an elder in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He is survived by brothers, Steve and Phil Ash; his sister, Barb Harrington; his wife, Helen Rae; his mother-in-law Fae Moss; seven children and 17 grandchildren.
Mike was preceded in death by his parents and his daughter Lisa.
