Michael Lynn Schmeck, Sr.

07/06/1965 — 12/25/2021

From Yakima, WA | Born in Seattle, WA

Michael Lynn Schmeck, Sr.

Michael L. Schmeck, Sr. (Simply Marvelous), 56, of Yakima, WA passed away at home on December 25, 2021.

He was born to Linda and Victor Schmeck on July 6, 1965, in Seattle, WA. He grew up in the Yakima and Tri-Cities area and that is where he spent his whole life.

Michael loved camping and going to motor-cross events with his son Mikey. His son Mikey was his best friend, his entire world, and arguably his proudest accomplishment! The entire family have many fond memories growing up watching Mikey race on “all the tracks” while also watching Michael run around screaming and hollering, making sure Mikey was racing hard and getting up fast when he would tip over.

Once of Michael’s proudest moments was watching his son get married to his wife, Trisha and start a family of his own.

Michael loved spending time with his family, especially his grandkids Karsyn, Alexia, Kamdyn, Morgan, and Addison. Those kids stole Grandpa Mike’s heart! Grandpa Mike loved attending the grandkids sporting events while cheering them on from the sidelines.

Michael has lots of nieces, nephews and cousins throughout Yakima, Tri-Cities and California that he enjoyed spending time and making memories with. He spent a lot of time living back and forth between Yakima and his nephew Nick’s house in Tri-Cities. He loved spending time with Nick and his entire family. Nick’s kids (Tyson, Aiden, Harper, and Ruby) will always remember the spare room as being “Uncle Mike’s Room”.

Michael loved his brother Victor and sister Lauri more than words could explain. He was well known for giving them both a hard time (it was all outta love). There are many memories of them sitting around picking on each other, laughing all the way.

Michael would always make people laugh with his goofy jokes and sarcastic sense of humor. He would get so excited about something he was talking about that he couldn’t get it out fast enough, so his famous line was “you know what I’m saying”. If you knew Michael (a.k.a, Marv) you knew his passion for food! He grilled up some mean chicken on the BBQ and was always snacking on something. Let’s just say, he was never late for dinner. We will forever miss your famous BBQ Chicken on the grill!

Michael is survived by his sons, Michael (Mikey) Schmeck, Jr. (Trisha), and Tim Reitan; daughters, Stephanie Cook, and Crystal Reitan; sister, Lauri (Tony) Norris; Grandkids, Karsyn, Alexia, Kamdyn, Morgan, and Addison; aunts; and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Linda (Druse) Schmeck; father, Victor Schmeck, Sr.; and his brother, Victor Schmeck, Jr.

A Celebration of Life will be held in his honor, but the family has not yet selected a date. Please check back with us via www.einansatsunset.com on Michael’s obituary page for updated service information.

R.I.P. Marv…until we meet again.
