Dear Loved Ones of Mike,
I am deeply saddened to hear of Mike's passing. I feel blessed to have known him. Mike was a gift to his family and his community. He was a bridge between cultures. It was always a joy to see him, to talk to him, to hear him sing. I will not forget him. I'm proud to call him a friend. You are all in my heart.

With love and affection,

I was so sad to hear of Mike’s passing. He was a key ingredient in the negotiation of Port Gamble’s successful and trend-setting Self-Governance agreements. These agreements have generated many millions of dollars with which to acquire the buildings and programs that have helped the Tribe to advance to be one of the most successful in the US. As a result, each Tribal member receives top-of-line health care and quality social services that treat each person with care, courtesy and respect.

Many years ago, I accompanied Mike to the offices of Senator Cantwell in Washington, DC and watched him demand the immediate release of funds to finance the construction of a modern, well-equipped Dental Clinic. Few realize that up to that time, the Tribe had lacked any dental care at all for nearly six months and the existing “facility” was located in a dismal trailer near the store.

We returned to Little Boston and within two weeks the Federal government heeded his demands and forwarded the funds needed to begin construction. This was typical of his drive and dedication to the S’Klallam people and only a small example of the impact he had on the lives of all his friends and family. He was a fearless advocate for “The Strong People”.

My heart goes out to Barbara and all who respected the quality individual that he was. He was someone at the Tribe for whom I had the ultimate respect. His loss will be felt by all who love the dignity and strength of the S’Klallam people. I will truly miss his big smile and huge talent.

I will miss grandpa so much. He was one of the first to call me Mrs. Jones and it was an honor to be so called. He made it clear he was proud to have me in his family and always had a kiss, hug and a smile waiting for me and so many others. My skipper, my teacher, and the best great-grandpa my kids could hope for. I know he's a peace, but my heart is broken for all of us.

My sister (Amber)and I(Holly) are so sorry for your loss. We lived next door to the family in 1959-1962. Lillian, Bob and all the kids were good neighbors. We were the Lindstrom's back then.
