Alan “Mike” Prindiville

Alan “Mike” Prindiville, 87, passed away peacefully on April 1, 2024, in Richland, WA with his family by his side.

Mike was born on May 18, 1936 at his family homestead in Rutland, North Dakota. He was the youngest of six children born to John and Naomi (Barnhard) Prindiville. He graduated from Rutland High School in 1954 and started working at the lumber mill in Cathlamet, WA with his older brother, Gerry. When the lumber mill was sold, he returned to North Dakota and began working for the railroad. He met his future wife, Vonda, in Williston, North Dakota when the railroad workers were invited to attend the local 4th of July celebration. Mike and Vonda were married on August 2, 1958 in St. Joseph’s Church in Williston.

Vonda and Mike welcomed five children – Carrie, Mary, Laurie, Michele, and Greg. They lived in North Dakota and South Dakota before relocating to Washington state and eventually settling in Richland in 1968, where they remained and raised their children.

Mike left the railroad to live in Williston where he started a career in sales. The family moved west to Spokane, WA, in 1964, where his brother Denny was living. It was there that he joined Jensen-Byrd where he was employed for many years, and eventually transferred to Richland, WA. He transitioned to working at the Hanford Site as a contract administrator. He retired from Hanford in 2003. Mike and Vonda enjoyed traveling in their motor home around the Pacific Northwest and back home to North Dakota. They never missed a chance to fish where ever they were. They loved spending time with family, especially their children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Mike loved to sing and enjoyed talking to people. He always had a story or two to share with those lucky enough to spend time with him. He was a devout Catholic and member of Christ the King parish. He was a proud member of the Knights of Columbus for many years. His achievements included being a 4th degree Knight, becoming Grand Knight in 1985 and then District Deputy.

Mike is survived by his children Carrie D’Andrea (Ron), Mary Prindiville (Ken Rutledge), Laurie Noles, Michele Anderson (John), and Greg Prindiville (Kerry); his brother Pat Prindiville; his brothers-in-law Dennis Hughes (Marge), James Hughes (Paula), Michael Hughes (Peggy), Robert Egge; 12 grandchildren, 15 great-grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Mike was preceded in death by his wife Vonda Prindiville, his parents, his siblings Gerry Prindiville, Denny Prindiville, Roger Prindiville, and Gwen Young, and his grandson Travis D’Andrea.

A rosary service will be held at Christ the King church in Richland, WA on April 10th at 4:00 pm. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at Christ the King on April 11th at 11:00 am with a graveside service.

A memorial mass will be scheduled in mid-June near Rutland, ND.

  • I have many fond memories of my Uncle Mike, especially of him teaching me how to do the waltz at the Knights of Columbus. I always knew where I could find him when visiting their house, just make a right when you walked through the front door and their he was sitting in his recliner smoking his pipe watching college basketball. Uncle Mike and Aunt Vonda’s house was always a warm, kind place to be. I will cherish the memories made with them. Waltz on Uncle Mike until we meet again, xoxoxo’s
