Michael Owen Outzen, 78, was born October 24, 1942, and passed July 29, 2021, from complications of Covid-19. Michael was born in Torrance, California. He lived most of his life in Tooele, Utah. He and Doreen, along with their children lived in Fallbrook California for 7 years, then they moved back to Tooele. Mike loved golfing and hunting with his family. He shot a trophy deer with his uncle Keith Outzen and loved showing it off to every envious hunter around. He especially loved coaching his “boys” in baseball. His greatest joy was being with his kids and grandkids, and camping at our family park in Ophir, Utah. Mike served 6 years in the United States Army Reserve and was honorably discharged May 12, 1970. Mike has a great love for everyone, he had a great sense of humor and a quick wit. Mike loved the Lord and our gospel with all his heart. He had many callings in the church, and he served with love. Mike and his family, together with our dearest friends, had a double ceremony and were sealed in the Salt Lake Temple, December 16, 1977. With these words we end our tribute and honor to our son, brother, husband, father, and grandpa. With all the love we have to give, fly free, Michael Owen Outzen. He is preceded in death by his parents, Mack and Connie Outzen, and his in-laws Ernie and Dorothy Vario. He is survived by his loving wife and best friend of 56 years, Doreen, and children Brent (Aaron), Brian, Sean (Jackie) Lindsey, Jerome Lester, and 7 grandchildren, Brennan, Jason, Devon, Megan, McKinley, Lexi, Halle, and 3 great grandchildren, Liam, Landry, and Aubree, two sisters, Trudy Johnson (Joe), Debbie Johnson (Joe), and one brother, Terri Outzen (Colleen), best friend Bob Mills, sons Branndon (Lisa), Trevor, Anthony (Bernice) Mills. Thank you to Dr. Charles Holt and his staff for his wonderful care and love given to Michael and family all these years.
