Mike Evans | Obituary

Mike Evans passed away on April 26, 2022 at the age of 58, in his hometown of Auburn, WA.

A lifelong resident of Auburn, Mike graduated from Auburn High School in 1983 and stayed local to raise his children and pursue his career. He proudly served 30 years at Boeing where he was a fuel systems engineer. Mike worked hard to achieve professional success, and was incredibly proud of his career. He retired in 2020 and carried memories of his successes, work-related travel, and the incredible friendships he built at Boeing with him right up to the end.

Beyond his work, Mike was a man of many skills and interests. He had an incredible green thumb and loved to spend his summers growing a bountiful vegetable garden. He loved exploring the outdoors and traveling to National Parks for camping and hiking excursions. A skilled handyman, Mike was always in the middle of a home improvement project. No matter where you looked in his home, you could always find evidence of some work in progress. He loved to write poetry and baked the best banana bread around. Much of Mike’s life was centered around soccer — he played the sport through his youth and into adulthood, was an avid Seattle Sounders fan, and spent years as a dedicated coach to each of his three children’s teams.

Above all else, Mike was a loving father and doting grandfather. Mike worked exceptionally hard to build the best life for his family and there’s no doubt that they were his pride and joy. Mike will be missed every day by those that love him.

He is survived by his three children Kaylie, Megan, and Clint; his three grandchildren Cameron, Karson, and Killian; his parents Clint and Joanie; and his three sisters Kathy, Kristie, and Jolene.
