Michael E. Ferrell 10/25/39 - 2/15/17 Michael E. Ferrell, 77, of Vancouver, WA, passed away after a brief illness on Feb. 15, 2017. He was born on Oct. 25, 1939 in Pasco, WA, and attended schools there and Scottsdale, AZ, graduating from Sunny Slope High School in Glendale, AZ. Mike attended Columbia Basin College in the Tri-Cities. He held jobs at the local television station, eventually moving to Tacoma's television market and then Salt Lake City's KSL Television. Mike's career in advertising and marketing spanned over 50 years, working in television, movie production, marketing, and print advertising for large corporations such as V-Tech Communications, AT&T, and many local companies such as Hart Toys, and in Phoenix for Tom Hopkins Productions. Mike loved sports and was active in tennis, racquetball, and pickle ball, and, later in life, golf. As one of the original season ticket holders of the Seattle Seahawks, he never missed a game; even when he was out of the area he continued to follow them. He truly was their "12th Man." Mike was energetic, often rising by 5:30 a.m. to play racquetball or golf. He was a natural teacher and loved to coach kids; his little league team winning the district championship in Scottsdale, and in football he was on the sidelines cheering and coaching his sons and friends. Mike is survived by his wife of 51 years, Margaret; three children, Michael S. Ferrell, Brandee Heppler (Lance), and McKay E. Ferrell (Jasmine); and six grandchildren. He was interred at Evergreen Memorial Gardens in Vancouver, WA. Please sign his guest book at www.columbian.com/obits
