Obituary: Mendonca, Mike


Mike Mendonca, a resident of Spokane since 1993 and retired bricklayer, lost his battle with a long illness on March 10th.

His fight was long and hard.

He is survived by three sisters, all living in California: Marlene Foster, Shirl Mendonca, and Carrie Mendonca; two children in Arroyo Grande, CA, Sterling Higgins, Amy Madden, and their children Jaden, Tyler, and Ella Higgins and Brenn Madden; in Spokane, his wife Cynthia Mendonca, stepson, Nathan Smith, and grandson Javin Smith.

With Mike goes a piece of our hearts.
