August 27, 1960 - February 4, 2021
Michael Hemore, It is with great sadness that the family of Michael Richard Hemore, announce his passing on February 4, 2021. Mike was loved by many and is survived by his father Dick Hemore, sister Kim (Randy), brother Roger (Heidi), his nieces, nephew and many cousins, aunts and uncle. He was preceded in death by his mother Lottie Hemore. Mike was a longtime resident of Moses Lake and attended Moses Lake High School, graduating class of 1978 where he was active in the wresting program. He received his technical degree from Big Bend Community College in Diesel Mechanics and opened The Diesel Shop in Moses Lake in 1984. He worked for many years as a mechanic at C&V Auto and at Moses Lake Truck Sales. Mike had a very quick wit about him and was fun to be around. He loved everyone he met, and he loved helping people in need. He was a smart, ingenious and resourceful man with the ability to solve complex problems with unique solutions, a creativity that so many of his friends respected. Mike began his journey in engine mechanics at the age of 12 when he built his first go-cart using a Homelite chainsaw engine. He would work on it during the week and run it on the weekends in an empty paved lot on the base before the Port of Moses Lake moved in. He bought his first car at age 16, a Fastback Mustang 289, then owned a Mustang Mach 1. Mike bought a ’70 Barracuda and became a MOPAR enthusiast in high school sharing this passion with his dad and he spent many years with his friends at the racetrack where he was always crew chief on the team regardless of if there were cars or motorcycles racing. Mike fought a long 10-year battle to gain back his strength and good health from a motorcycle accident in 2011 but was never able to win the war. There will be a celebration of Mike’s life once spring arrives. Mike will be forever missed by those of us who knew and loved him. I miss you Bro.
