January 9, 1969 - May 10, 2019
Eugene (Michael) Leon Guerrero Mendiola was born on January 9, 1969 to Melda Anne L.G. Mendiola and Joaquin P. Mendiola on his native island of Guam, USA. On Friday, May 10, 2019 at his residence in Tacoma, WA, Michael answered his Lord’s call to lay down and rest from his labors. As a child, he moved to Port Orchard in 1978 with his parents and siblings where he was a 1988 graduate from South Kitsap High School. Michael spent most of his young adult life as an automobile mechanic. Later in life, he worked installing hardwood flooring all around the greater Puget Sound region. Michael will be remembered for his passion for muscle cars from the 50’s thru 70’s eras. He enjoyed any opportunity to help restore them. When it came to cars, if you needed repairs to your vehicle, he could be counted on to provide any assistance to get it back on the road again. Like the true Chamorru that he was, Michael looked forward to family gatherings, Guam village fiestas, and virtually any excuse to party, eat great food, and enjoy tuba. Our beloved brother is preceded in death by his mother Melda. He leaves behind his daughter Alyssa Scheeres (Joshua Scheeres), granddaughters Amiyah and Aliyah, his father Joaquin, siblings Peter Mendiola (Esther Mendiola), Bertha Clapper (Rodney Clapper), Donna Vedros (Kurt Vedros), Kin Mendiola (Lindsay Mendiola), Patrick Mendiola (Bobbie Blas Mendiola – deceased), Lena Nelson (Sam Nelson), Mildred Flores (Bill Flores), John Mendiola (Carmen Mendiola), Dwayne Mendiola (Teresa Mendiola), his optimus amicus and cousins Tisa Gabretti (Lori Gabretti) , Berlin Gabretti (Laurie Gabretti) and numerous nephews and nieces. The family would like to offer our gratitude to the doctors, nurses (Tiffany and Robert), support staff, and friends of the LVAD and Heart Failure Team from Tacoma General Hospital for the care and support that they provided in helping him cope with this heart failure.
