Michael L. Kelsey was born on March 22, 1962 in Great Falls, MT to Gary and Leta Rae Kelsey. He Graduated from Great Falls High School in 1980 and Eastern Montana College in 1985 crediting his mother for this accomplishment because of the dishes of food he received while pursuing his degree.

Michael developed a strong work ethic and respect for others. He was most proud of his role as Distribution Manager for Crossmart Corp. Where he worked at several Home Depot stores rising to field trainer for new representatives in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Washington, and Oregon. Michael would also work for Rite Aid as a merchandiser of new stores and remodels. Most recently Michael contributed as a  Assistant Manager for Walgreens in Washington and later Great Falls until health problems forced him into disability.

Drew joy from memories of vacations to Canada and Disneyland, and traveling to Alaska and Hawaii for Crossmark, Michael loved visiting Giant Springs, Hauser Lake, camping at Lake MacDonald Glacier Park, vacationing to Reno and Las Vegas, NV and hanging out at Redondo Beach at Federal Way Washington.

He loved country music, John Wayne movies, and sports. He was fanatical about football and the Seattle Seahawks. Receiving season tickets to Seahawks for Christmas, and getting to attend the playoffs. 

Survived by mother Leta Rae Kelsey. Uncle – Gary MacKenzie and his daughters Cindy (Mike) Whitaker family Ashley, Riley, Madison, Colleen (Mike) Vaught Grey & Daughter Myla.

Proceeded in death, by grandmother Mary Ella Mac Kenzie, Grandfather Merle MacKensie, Grandparents William and Katholeen Kelsey.

Michael wishes to thank his mom and uncle for all their encouragement, helping with all his moves and supporting him in all his endeavors.
