Obituary: John Mikal Tibolla

John Mikal Tibolla

"Will Be Missed"

Mikal was a strong lover of golf, skiing, books on philosophy, camping and cooking. Mikal made his living in the golf industry and it was his strongest passion in life. Mikal attended the University of Utah and received a double major in philosophy and economics. He loved his Italian heritage and traveled to Italy to attend cooking school and study the language. Mikal loved cooking delicious meals for friends and family, his Tirimisu was every one's favorite. He made us laugh when he said "I am 50% Swedish and 100% Italian. Mikal was a tender soul and was deeply loved by all that knew him. Mikal was always generous and never hesitated to give of himself for his friends. To our deepest sorrow Mikal chose to leave us on on the evening of Thursday the 18th. Our hearts fly with him. Mikal is preceded in death by his loving grandparents Demont and Virginia Hansen and John Etori Tibolla.
