Obituary for Michael Davidson

Michael J. Davidson, age 70, of Stanton, passed away on Monday, September 21, 2020 at Medilodge of Wyoming.

Mike proudly served his country during Vietnam as a member of the United States Army, 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment, 3rd Squadron, L Troop, 2nd Platoon and was also a member of the Stanton American Legion. He was an avid outdoorsman who loved hunting and fishing. In high school, Mike was a standout 4 sport athlete for the Portland Red Raiders and is best remembered for the football game where he carried the ball only 5 times, with each carry resulting in a touchdown. Mike’s love of sports continued into adulthood where he really liked watching the Detroit Lions, Michigan State University teams and Detroit Tigers baseball; however, his favorite sporting events to watch were the ones his grandkids played in. Mike absolutely loved being a dad and grandpa and was always their number one fan. He also liked working in his yard which is a passion passed down to him from his mother.

Mike is survived by his wife, Kim; sons, Josh (Davina) Davidson of Carson City; Michael Davidson (Stacey Senn) of Stanton; grandchildren, Brendan (Haley); Adriana; Bryonna; Mackenzi; Edy; Marissa; Adison; Bryce; and Jayden; brother, John (Becky) Davidson of Oscoda; brother’s-in-law, Rod Gard of Arizona; Rick Gard of Grand Rapids; sister-in-law, Ronda (Herb) Masters of Battle Creek; Aunt and Uncle Connie (Dan) Maurer of Burlington; nieces, Heather; Sarah; Alyssa; Lyndee and Sara; nephews, Jeremy; Nick; Roger; Ben; Jonathan; Hunter and Ryan; and his beloved dog, Rudy.
