11/19/1947 - 11/22/2020

Michael A. Tulkki, age 73, passed away peacefully on November 22, 2020, in Gilbert, AZ.  Michael was born to Walter and June Tulkki in Minneapolis,  MN, in 1947.  Mike lead a very happy and active life filled with family and friends.  Mike loved to golf, fish, watch sports and gather with friends and family.

In 1970, Michael married the love of his life, Janice C. Schwender.  They were blessed to have celebrated 50 years of  marriage in July of 2020. In June of 1989, they were blessed with their son, Adam.  He was the highlight of Michael’s life.

Michael is survived by his wife Janice, son Adam (Sarah), brother Gene (Cindy), sister Deborah Maloney (Randy), and numerous cousins, aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews and Janice’s extended family who loved him. Michael is preceded in death by his parents, Walter and June Tulkki.

Funeral Services pending.  We hope to gather in the spring when it is safe to do so.

    Mike was fun to be around during our school days. We often walked or rode to school together along with ge ne. Sometimes we would think alike. I know he had some health issues, but we all do as we age. We never made it to visit with you and family in Arizona
    . May you have the best life now that Mike is gone. If you do anything back in MN, let us know. Thanks Ron and deb

  • So very sorry for your loss

    Jan and Adam, we are so sorry to hear about Mike’s passing. We all know he is in paradise, no more hurt or pain. And probably drinking a beer with my Dad talking about all of us that they loved so much! We will pray for healing hearts! Hugs and Love from Ron & Nancy ♥

  • Janice, I just heard today about Mike. I’m very sorry for you and Adam. I worked with Mike several years ago.
    I always remember that smile he always had. My prayers go out to the family.
