Michael John Marich, age 69, died Monday, February 11, 2019 at his home in Alamo, Nevada, surrounded by his family. John was born on August 16, 1949 in Ely, Nevada to Michael and Dorothy Alice Dolfin Marich. On October 21, 1967 he married Sharon Fay Jackson in Ely, Nevada; his beloved wife of 51 years.

John grew up in Ruth and Ely, Nevada. He worked as a mechanic at the Kennecott mine in Ruth. He then worked for twenty years with the Lincoln County Road Department and operated his own shop. Whenever his garage door was rolled up, friends would gather to visit, ask for advice, laugh and tell jokes. He had an easy smile and a great sense of humor. John enjoyed building Hot Rods, camping, and exploring the hills on his Kawasaki Mule with his family and his dog. He created and sold barnwood crafts with his wife and also liked to draw. John loved his family and they loved him in return. He will be dearly missed.
