Mike was born April 26, 1954 in Moscow to Robert C. and Virginia Johnson Scoles. Mike grew up in Moscow, attending Moscow schools, graduating from Moscow High in 1973. On June 28, 1975, he married his high school sweetheart, Linda Allert. They made their home in Moscow where Mike worked for Moscow Building Supply for the past 33 years. In his spare time, he enjoyed working on old cars, camping, snuggling up with his favorite “person” of all time, his dog Zoee, but he especially enjoyed spending time with his family, and attending his grandchildren’s sporting events.
He was preceded in death by his father, Robert C. Scoles in 1984, his mother, Virginia Bugh in 1994 and his step-dad, Ray Bugh in 2008.
He is survived by his wife, Linda, of 39 years, his daughters, April (Heath) Cane of Pullman, Jamie (Wayne) Jacobs and Jennifer (Joe) Kasper all of Moscow, and his grandchildren, Christopher, Trenton, Jayden and “Baby Cane” on the way. He also leaves his sister, Linda (Eric) Baunach, also of Moscow.
A Memorial Service will be held Thursday, October 2, 2014 at 10:30 AM at Short’s Funeral Chapel in Moscow. Mike’s cousin, Bob Wischmeier will officiate and a reception will follow.
The family suggests memorials be made to the Humane Society of the Palouse for the Moscow Dog Park.
