Michael Urtiaga was born August 10, 1961. Passed from this life November 13, 2020 at the age of 59 years, 3 months and 3 days. Michael is preceded by his younger brother, Kenneth "Bird" Urtiaga and both sets of grandparents, Mike and Cipriana Urtiaga and David and Natha "Little Bit" Wheeler. He leaves behind the love of his life, Jenny Lee Urtiaga, his beloved son, Michael Urtiaga Jr. (Melissa), his sweet daughters, Stephanie Bell (DJ) and Staci West (Justin). He has 7 treasured grandchildren, Daniel, Rachael and Colton Bell, Shayla and Malayna Urtiaga and Kamyrin and Gauge West and 1 great grandson, Bentley Bell. He is also survived by his parents, Mike and Gini Urtiaga and 1 sister, Gigi Urtiaga-Deptawa.
Michael loved (and was champion at) barbequing and cooking in general. He and Jenny enjoyed cooking holiday meals and for family get-togethers. Together they loved dancing and singing karaoke at the "Bite Me Bar" which was also known as their front porch.
Michael worked for CPS for several years and then moved to La Vernia and went into business for himself building metal buildings, gates and fencing all around South Texas. They moved from La Vernia to Aransas Pass (Rockport area) and he continued his work as Platinum Fabrication in and around the coastal area.
Michael is loved by all whose lives he touched as a fun and entertaining person and will be greatly missed.
We would like to give a special thanks to his unrelated brother, Phillip Jolly, for the comfort and support he has given to the family at this time of grief in our lives.
Michael had requested that no formal service be held, but we will appreciate your prayers for the Lord to give us the strength we need to get past this.
