Michael Allen Spriet, 42, a longtime Baker City resident, died June 19, 2004, at his home.

His graveside funeral will be at 1 p.m. Thursday at Mount Hope Cemetery. Dean Baxter will officiate.

Everyone is invited to a reception after the ceremony at the home of Jodi Hacker, 2435 Myrtle St. Visitations will be from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday at the funeral home.

Mike was born on Sept. 28, 1961, at Baker City to Harley “Ten Bucks” Spriet and Zoe Anne Fuller-Spriet. He received his schooling in Baker City and was a 1981 Baker High School graduate.

After high school, Mike served a mission in Sao Paulo, Brazil. He related many fond memories of this experience. When Mike returned from his mission, he began work for Albertsons in the produce department where he worked for a couple of years.

He then moved on to P & E Distributing where he worked with his dad for 15 years. In December 2000 he went to work for PW Poly.

Mike was known as “Slyde” or “Mikey” to his friends and family. He had a warm heart and always greeted those he loved with a smile and a hug. His sunny personality and laugh will be missed by all.

His daughter, Kayla, who he affectionately referred to as “Munchkin,” was the apple of his eye. Slyde was an avid outdoorsman and enjoyed hunting, fishing and camping with his friends and family.

Survivors include his daughter, Kayla of Baker City; his mother, Zoe Anne of Baker City; brothers and sisters-in-law, Rick and Cindi Spriet of Springfield, and Harley Dean and Myka Spriet of Baker City; sister and brother-in-law, Jodi and Kyle Hacker of Baker City; his grandparents, Deal and Arlene Spriet, of Baker City; his former wife, Audra Spriet; and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his father, Harley Spriet.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Kayla Spriet Trust Account through Coles Funeral Home, 1950 Place St., Baker City, OR 97814.
