“Big Mike” rode his Harley into the sky on September 22, 2022, after a long battle with liver cancer.

Mike was born to William and Peggy Mullin on August 23, 1955 in Eureka. Mike, the oldest of their two children, had a younger sister, Marcy. His father would later remarry and have his younger brother, Shannon.

Mike attended Eureka High School, where he was a star football player. He would later obtain his GED while serving our country in the United States Army. After his honorable discharge he came back home to Eureka. He followed his passion for fishing and went to work for Arctic Ice, fishing off the coast of Alaska for a number of years. Mike would eventually settle in Washington’s Spokane Valley.

Mike had many endeavors throughout his life. A self-proclaimed Jack of all trades, he owned many successful businesses over the years. Friends and family have described him as one of the smartest men they had ever known. There weren’t many things he didn’t know how to do, and if he didn’t know how to do something he would pick up a book and learn how. Mike enjoyed riding his Harley and fly fishing most of all. He was also one of the best pool players you could ever come across, winning tournament after tournament.

Mike leaves behind two daughters, Rebecca and Kalee; four grandchildren, Draken, Jax, Nicole and Barrett; his younger brother, Shannon; his dear friend Mike Ferguson, who will be spreading some of his ashes at Sturgis, where he enjoyed many biker ralliess. Mike spent the last decade with his loving partner Lori, who was a pillar of strength for him in the end.

At Mike’s request no funeral services will be held at this time. His memory lives on in all who knew him.
