Charles Michael (Mike) Cuthbert, born Jan. 31, 1955, left for Heaven on July 2, 2019.

He lost his battle with cancer and passed peacefully with family by his side at Providence Hospital, Colby Campus.

Preceding him in death were his father Charles Cuthbert and brother Raymond Esquivel Cuthbert.

He leaves behind his wife of 21 years, Vickie Cuthbert; his mother, Molly Cuthbert; three sisters, Lorraine Mueller, Dori Havlick and Caroline Foisy; four children, Toby McCreary, Shawna Baxter, Amelia Voiss and Jaymn Remke; two stepchildren, Nicole Hatfield and David Mathieson; 11 grandchildren; numerous cousins, nieces, nephews; and several great nieces and nephews.

As a child, Mike grew up attending Everett schools and spent many summers hiking and fishing Goat Lake with his dad and siblings. He was an avid hunter, hunting Waterville area with his dad and Pateros Black Canyon area as an adult with his wife and best friend, Chad Jackson.

Some of the most memorable stories were of him riding his dirt bike daredevil style through his neighborhood, keeping his mother on her toes at all times.

When he wasn’t on his motorcycle he was always laughing, joking and having fun, but it was his inquisitive nature that led him to be forever nicknamed “Mom’s little genius.”

He lived life to the fullest, and his love for adventure and speed never waned.

He retired from Boeing, where he worked in the wing line. He and his wife built their home on Whidbey Island in Greenbank, Wash., where he spent most of his free time building hot rods and restoring classic cars and trucks.

He spent many sunny days with his wife riding their Harley, but his true passions in life were his Corvettes. He owned numerous Corvettes throughout his life.

He loved listening to rock and roll very loudly on his stadium horns and was learning to play guitar.

He didn’t slow down until he was diagnosed with cancer in 2018.

Mike had such a kind heart, always seeing the best in everyone and could never turn anyone away if they asked for his help.

He was loved deeply and will be greatly missed by all.

There will be a potluck dinner in celebration of his life, hosted by his wife, 1 p.m. Aug. 24 at the Greenbank Progressive Clubhouse, 3090 Firehouse Road Greenbank, Wash., 98253, on Whidbey Island.

His family has chosen to have a celebration of his life potluck at 2 p.m. Sept. 15 at the South Lake Stevens Grange, 2209 103rd Ave. SE, Lake Stevens, Wash. 98258.
