March 29, 1951 ~ November 18, 2011

Mike passed away at home in Washougal, WA, on Nov. 18, 2011, after a courageous eleven-month battle with Glioblastoma Brain Cancer. He was born in Portland, OR to Robert B. and Gladys McCary and was raised in Washougal.
Mike retired from Georgia Pacific Paper Mill after 34 years of service and then found the "perfect retired guys" job as a valet attendant at SSWMC ER.
He enjoyed foremost his family and friends, the outdoors (especially fishing) gardening and travel.
Mike is noted for his sense of humor which was a gift he carried from childhood to the end. Always trying to make people
smile or laugh. There was always some good in everything!
Mike is survived by his wife of 37 years, Donna Whetzel McCary; daughters, Kathryn McCary Anstett (Jason) and Kelly McCary Upjohn (Aaron); father, Robert; sister, Sandy Ladd; ten grand- children; and many special friends.
There will be a Celebration of Mike's Life on Fri., Dec. 2, 2011, 2:00 p.m., at Camas Assembly of God Church, 500 S.E. Everett Rd., Camas, WA 98607.
A heartfelt thanks to Dr. Simon and the entire staff at NW Cancer and Hospice SW, family and friends, and especially Rick and Beth Cross, for their care and support.
