Michael Flippin Memorial Services

Michael Flippin - March 17 1961 - November 19 2017

Michael Flippin started his life journey as a magical St Patty's baby on March 17th 1961 in Southern California.  He lived a "rock n roll" lifestyle filled with music, fun,  and loving wearing flip flops in the California sun.  Through all life's migrations he came to Spokane Washington to make the most of his last days with his daughter Melissa Flippin.  To heal the past and rewrite HIS-story.  He came to the Northwest in poor health and  through a regiment of love and a healthy diet they managed to fight off the cancer and at one point was diagnosed as 90% cured.  In a very sudden turn of unfortunate events and complications it was found that Michael had cancerous tumors that had spread to his spinal chord causing paralysis and in a matter of 2 days he had passed.  He suffered little and was met on the other side by his loving Mother, Sister, Father, and soul family.    

It has been an honor to be a part of his life journey.  

Endings are only gateways to new beginnings.

Shine on you crazy diamond as the great gig in the sky.  

His daughter Melissa Flippin will  be in charge of the final expenses.  Donations will go to his cremation, last bills left behind,  and a service for his sober Brothers and Sisters in Spokane and a service for his friends and family in Torrance California. 

Your loving generosity is appreciated.
