April 11, 1987 – April 2, 2017

Michael Anton Koski, a witty and adventurous Washingtonian, passed away on April 2, 2017. He was the youngest son of William and Nancy Koski, brother to Allan Koski, and awesome uncle to Kalan and Kaiya Koski.

Michael was strong, unpretentious, and incredibly artistic. He worked as a union electrician, with an affinity for his boots, Carhartts, and beanies. Michael was a talented artist, and he had an enduring love for music, tattoos, the Seahawks, and art.

He enjoyed the company of close friends and family, and was loved by many. Michael had the gift of giving people a reason to laugh in almost any situation, and giving a shoulder to cry on when people needed it the most.

Michael grew up in the Shoreline neighborhood and was a graduate of Shorewood High School. He was active in helping peers battle drug addiction during the recovery process.

Michael is survived by a very large extended family: the Schmidt family, the Neigum family, and the Koski family.

There will be a gathering of friends and family to celebrate Michael’s life on Saturday, April 29 from 1 P.M. to 4 P.M. at the Shoreline Center, 18560 1st Ave NE, Shoreline.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Bullseye Dog Rescue : http://bullseyerescue.org or American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals: http://www.aspca.org.
