This is my husband/best friend. He was taken away from myself, our daughters, his family, and his friends way too soon. He was the best husband, father, son, brother, and friend. He lit up every room that he entered, and even if it was a brief encounter, always left a positive impression on everyone. He was 48 years old when he passed on April 10, 2020. In 2012, he was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, and fought that tooth and nail. He taught our daughters that you can get through anything that life puts in your way. Throughout his treatment for cancer, he lived his life to the fullest. He coached softball, worked full time, and enjoyed leisure time with family and friends. COVID came along, and because of his Multiple Myeloma, the battle was way too hard. He fought as hard as he could for 19 days. You will always be in our hearts my love. Until we meet again.Submitted by Bonnie Ortiz (OrtizBonnie@gmail.com)

  3. Michael was the best brother I was blessed to have for 48 years. He would do anything for anyone, I know that first hand. As my sister in law Bonnie said he lit up a room when he entered it . One other thing he had was his laugh, it was so infectious. I miss him more and more everyday.

  6. Mike was one of the best Taken way too soon. I will never forget him. His strength and determination was an inspiration to all of us. Bonnie, Jenna and Cara…you should know that he was loved by so many people and he will always live on, through you. I am privileged to have known him. I love you girls. XO

  7. How can one possibly put into words how much Mike Ortiz and his family have positively affected the lives of so many people? Every family should aspire to be like the Ortiz Family. The love, loyalty and support that we’ve had the privilege of witnessing for the past 14 years is truly inspiring. Mike will always be an angel of perspective to all of the people that he knew and loved. His joy for life, great sense of humor, selflessness and commitment to his beautiful wife, daughters and family are unparalleled. He was his daughters’ biggest fan whether it was Jenna singing her heart out on stage or Cara hitting the ball out of the park! And every couple should hope to be like Bonnie and Mike. Their relationship is the perfect example of true love. May God bless this amazing family today and always. We love you all.

  9. My father and best friend. I would not choose anyone else in the world to be my daddy. You made me so happy and I hate the fact that you were taken from me, mommy, and Cara so soon. You still had a full life ahead of you. Filled laughter, love, light, and hope. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making everyday easier and my smile bigger. You were the greatest father, son, brother, friend, coach, and teacher. I will always keep you in my heart and remind myself not to sweat the small stuff. If I am even half the person you were when I am older, then I will be so lucky. Thank you for being my greatest gift. I love you so much daddy. You will be in my heart always. I will never stop missing you. Until we meet again.
    Love your first born Jenna Raine

  10. To my father and best friend. I am so thankful I was chosen to be your daughter. I wish I had the words to truly describe how great of a person you were, just like I wish you were still here and laughing with us. You made me, mommy, and Cara so happy, even on your hardest days, and always worked to show us that life is beautiful. Thank you for being my greatest inspiration and biggest hero. I hate that you are not here. We all do. You still had so much life ahead of you and so many more smiles to bring. Thank you for making everyday easier and my heart happier. If I am even half the person you were, I will be so lucky. To the best husband, son, brother, friend, coach, teacher, and my daddy, I will never stop missing you. You will always be in my heart. I love you so much daddy. Until we meet again.
    Love your first born Jenna Raine
