ILWACO Michael S. Mike Barrett, 48, died at his Ilwaco residence of natural causes on June 23, 2011. Born in Portland on April 29, 1963, he was the son of Robert and Joann (Crawford) Barrett. He grew up in the Portland area and attended and graduated from Sandy High School.
Following high school he moved to the Peninsula to pursue his dream of commercial fishing. He and his dad fished together for a number of years out of Ilwaco, plying the local waters. He later bought his own boat and was fishing until his death. Fishing was his life period!
Mr. Barrett is survived by his parents, Robert and Joanne Barrett of Gladstone, Ore., and a sister, Jenny Barrett of Anchorage, Alaska. His son, Luke Barrett, preceded him in death.
