Michael Lee Wolf, 66, loving husband, son, father, grandfather, and friend, passed away Sept. 17, 2021. Mike was born June 15, 1955, in Linton, N.D. to Michael and Elizabeth Wolf and was the youngest of six kids. The family then moved to Spokane in 1960, and Mike graduated from Rogers High School in Spokane, Wash. in 1973.
In 1975, Mike was set up on a date with Vickie Markham, who ended up being the women he would grow old with. In 1978, they moved to Okanogan, where Mike was the manager of the Cedars Inn and Vickie was the manager of the restaurant at the Cedars Inn. On March 12, 1979, Mike and Vickie became husband and wife and in July 1987, they welcomed daughter Ashley Marie, then later welcomed Andrew Michael in 1993.
After 20 years in the hotel industry, Mike and Vickie decided it was time for a change. In 2005, they purchased a business in downtown Okanogan. After two years of remodeling the building, they opened “WALLWEBBERS”, a soup and sandwich shop in 2007. Mike loved working with his wife and daughter and loved talking to the customers even more. In 2014, after much discussion, Mike and Vickie decided to close their restaurant and quietly retire.
In 2017, Mike welcomed his granddaughter, Brooklyn Marie. He loved when she would come visit him. Mike enjoyed rooting for the local Okanogan Bulldogs, watching the Seattle Seahawks with Ashley, Chris, and Brooklyn, and watching his favorite team the Gonzaga men’s basketball team. He rarely missed a game and proudly supported their apparel. He enjoyed meeting up with his many friends for his “old man coffee” and got along with everyone who crossed his path.
Mike was preceded in death by his wife Vickie, of 42 years; his parents, Mike and Elizabeth; his father-in-law, Ed; two sisters; and two brothers-in-laws.
Mike is survived by his daughter, Ashley (Chris); son, Andrew; granddaughter, Brooklyn; his older sisters, Gloria (Jim) and Peggi (Mike); one older brother, Andrew; and numerous in laws, cousins, nieces, and nephews.
At this time, no services are planned. Celebration of life details to follow in the spring.
