Michael St. Martin Obituary

Michael James St. Martin (76) of Tempe, AZ, passed away peacefully on August 18th, 2023, with his
family lovingly by his side.
Mike was born on December 14, 1946, third child to Esther and Merl St. Martin. Mike grew up in
Munising, MI sharing many cherished moments with his three siblings, Sandy, Joe, and John. After
graduating from High School, he enlisted in the United States Air Force.
Mike honorably served his country for 20 years, which included deployment to Vietnam. During this
time, he met and married his first wife Kathy, had three children, Mikey, Paula and Chris.
We were told many times how he had to walk for miles in a blizzard, both ways, to get to school, so suck
it up. With that said he was genuine to a fault, generous to the point of giving you the shirt off his back,
even his “best” one, and yet he sugar-coated nothing.
Over the years, his words of encouragement, wisdom, and sometimes comfort, kept us in line, taught us
the “school of hard knocks” and gave us something to pass down to our children.
Mike will be fondly remembered by family and friends simply as a great Man, Father, Grandfather and
our “Superman”.
Mike is survived by his daughters Paula St. Martin, and Christine St. Martin and her husband Greg Shank.
Forever remembered by his siblings Sandy Mulligan, Joe St. Martin, and John St. Martin and their
families. He is also loved and remembered by his grandsons Chance-Michael Sauceda and Garrett-Cade
Sauceda and granddaughter Danielle St. Martin.
Mike was predeceased by his beloved wife Julie Morrissey and his much-loved son Michael St. Martin II.
A small, private ceremony is currently being planned by family. In lieu of flowers or donations, slip a
dollar into the slot of your local “one-armed bandit”.
The family of Mike’s wishes to thank Hospice of the Valley Dobson House for all the time they spent with
Mike even though it was short, and the care they gave during the heartbreaking final moments of Mike's amazing life.
