Mike was taken home to be with his Lord, Sunday April 24th, with his family by his side. Born in Salem, OR., to Ruth and Elmer Goertz, Mike grew up amongst the Christian fellowship of the greater Corbett community. It was here he made his home with his wife Barbara, and daughters Aimee and Holly. After earning his Master in Speech Communication and Theater of Arts degree, Mike's 34-year teaching career was shared between Lake Oswego Junior High, Lakeridge and Sam Barlow High Schools. Mike's life-long thirst for knowledge and quest for understanding was supported, discussed and actively debated with his loved younger brothers Jack, GD and Peter. His questions will linger in our minds. Mike will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
