Michael John Walsh

Oct. 30, 1954 – May 4, 2020

Michael John Walsh was born in Laramie to Michael Harry and Marcia Elizabeth Walsh. Michael is survived by his mother; his two children, Michael and Shannon; his grandchildren, Aiella, Caisen, Sarah and Sadie; his siblings, Linda, Patrick, Barbara, Sean, and David; and by his cat Meepers, his long-time companion and confidant.

Michael was a loving father, grandfather and friend to anyone he met. He loved sports, especially football. He was a #1 FSU fan and enthusiast, supporter of the Broncos and a proud fan of the ‘Pokes,’ his alma-mater. As many a Walsh, Michael embraced the art of fly-fishing, sharing its beauty with anyone interested; forever tying his flies in the Walsh legacy that spawns along the Platte. Michael was an avid golfer, never missing an opportunity to ‘get out his sticks’. He was an exceptional artist and a natural with any medium he explored. Wildcatting through his younger years in the Powder River Basin of Wyoming, Michael was passionate about geology, ultimately receiving the certification as a professional geologist. He fell in love with Wyoming - God’s Country - at a young age, knowing he would always return to Wyoming in the later part of his life.

Michael’s life will be remembered and celebrated at 11 a.m. on July 2, 2020 at the Church of the Transfiguration in Evergreen, Colorado, where he will be laid to rest.
