Michael Don Pellow, 73, passed away peacefully on September 5, 2019. He was born on May 22, 1946 in Portland and lived throughout Clackamas County his entire life. Mike was a 1964 graduate of Oregon City high school. After graduation Mike joined the U.S. Navy as a seaman for 4 years before being honorably discharged with the Vietnam Service Medal with one bronze star. Michael is survived by his wife of 35 years Lori Pellow, two daughters Mandy Mitchell and Elizabeth Wilson, and two granddaughters, Alyssa and Rylee Mitchell and his beloved Buster, along by his 5 siblings, 3 step children and 3 step grandchildren.

Mike worked for USF Reddaway for over 30 years and made friends at his delivery stops all over the Portland metro area. For years Mike went to nearly every home Duck game with his late father in law with a “decked out duck car”. Mike’s hobbies included coin collecting, Louis L’Amour books, and Western collectibles. He loved going to the movies. After retirement, Mike enjoyed traveling to Alaska with his wife, volunteering at the senior center in Gladstone washing dishes, and taking his two young granddaughters to story time at the Oregon City Library weekly.

Mike had a heart of gold, always offering his help to anyone he saw who may need it. Nothing was out of the way for Mike if it meant he could help someone. He was a terrific husband, father, and grandfather and friend who always made sure we knew he loved us. He was our biggest cheerleader, and will be missed greatly.

Come share your memories at Mikes celebration of life at the Pellow house in Oregon City. Open house from 11-3, with a small ceremony at 12.
