Michael J..D. Sandoval was 62 years old when he passed away on November 14th, 2017 in Minot, ND at the Trinity Hospital after a long battle with cancer and other complications.  Mike lived with his family at 309 Grant St, Plentywood, MT 59254.

Michael was born on October 19th, 1955 in Ely, Nevada to Mollie and Joe Sandoval. Michael is the sixth child out of eight. His sisters Betty and Kathy preceded him in death as well as his brother Paul. His other brothers, Dave, Rick, and Joe Jr. are still alive as well as his sister, Josephine.

In 1974, Michael followed his sister, Josephine to Plentywood, MT and, he fell in love with the area due to many actives such as  hunting, fishing, and other outdoor actives. Later on, he met and married Sherry Quam in 1990. They were married for 14 years but divorced in 2004.

However, the both of them had four wonderful children. Amanda Rae (1991), Olivia Jo (1992), Michael Donald (1999), and Elisha Corrine (2001). Michael also had a son, Tyler, born in 1981. Tyler was raised in Elko, Nevada. Tyler has two children, Elijah and Caleb.

The only thing that surpassed his love of hunting and fishing was the love he had for his children. Michael truly enjoyed family activities and just spending quality time with his kids, whether that’d be watching movies or going on road trips.

Michael was a loved father, friend, and brother. Although he has passed, his memories will live on with his children, family, and friends.
