Mike Wilkinson, a longtime resident of Caldwell, died Tuesday, July 25, 2017 at home of natural causes. He was born February 27, 1953 at the old Caldwell Memorial Hospital; the second child of Jim and Helen Wilkinson.
Mike grew up and attended school in Caldwell. He was a hard worker, spending time logging in Donnelly with Gary Vance. Mike spent many years working in residential construction with his Dad, Jim. He spent the last 15 years working at St. Vincent de Paul in Caldwell, repairing appliances. He retired from there in 2016 due to health issues.
Mike loved the outdoors; hunting, fishing, camping and growing a garden were some of his favorite pastimes. Family was especially important to him. Even though he had no children of his own, he had many. Holly and Angel Cedillo and their 7 children were treated and loved like his own.
Mike’s family would like to extend a special and heartfelt “Thank You” to Journey’s Hospice, specifically to Dani, Jessica, Christa, Linda and Lily for their loving and compassionate care given not only to Mike but to Mike’s family as well.
Mike is survived by his siblings, Toni Whitworth, Kal (Amy) Wilkinson and Jamie (Dave) Greene and brother-in-law, Lyle Scholz as well as many nieces and nephews and their extended families. He is also survived by several friends that he considered family and by his beloved dog and companion, Clarence.
