Michael bould
February 26, 1992 – November 17, 2021
Pasco, Washington – Michael Joseph Boulds, 29, died on November 17, 2021 in Costa Mesa, California. Michael was born in Richland, WA on February 26, 1992 and has lived his entire life in the Tri-Cities. He attended school in Burbank, WA from K-12. During his school years, he got involved in 4-H and loved to show his animals at the fair. He participated in wrestling and athletics and just loved to socialize and hang out with his friends. After graduation, Michael held several jobs before finding his niche as an auto salesperson. He has excelled in this area, winning the Vendor of the Month award on several occasions. These rewards and the positive relationships he had with his clients went a long way in building Michael’s self-esteem and boosting his morale.
Above all, Michael was devoted to his family. He enjoyed playing cards and board games for hours at family gatherings. He loved to listen to all the family stories and laugh with the family jokes. He loved to play laser tag and shoot a basket with his much younger cousins, who adored him. He has always been respectful and kind to his family and has never been afraid to say, “I love you”. He had such a tender soul.
There were so many things that brought joy to Michael in his short life. He liked to camp and go to the beach. He loved Christmas. He liked to dress his best and wear the best costumes. He was an avid weightlifter and spent many hours in the gym. He liked to run. He loved his dogs and was so nice to them. Michael was so smart. He was particularly fond of history and science and could hold a conversation on any subject.
Michael was cherished by his family and friends. Our hearts ached when he was in pain, and we celebrated his victories with joy. We were more proud of him than he had ever imagined and loved him with all our hearts. He had so many dreams for his future, and so much potential to see those dreams come true. This is why we mourn his loss so deeply and miss him dearly. We take comfort in the fact that Michael was a Christian and surely is looking down on us from heaven now.
Michael is survived by his parents Todd and Ronda Boulds, brothers Joshua and Matthew Boulds, grandparents Ron and Shirley George, Aunt Sondra (and Renny) Schauer, Aunt Susan (and Dennis) Gray, Uncle Bill (and Juanita) Boulds, Uncle Tom Boulds, and many cousins. He was predeceased by his grandparents James and Mary Boulds, Aunts Chrystal Roaden, Maureen Boulds and Kathy Boulds, and Uncle Jim Boulds.
There will be a memorial service at Faith Tri-cities Church in Pasco, WA on November 29 at 1:00 p.m. All are invited to join us as we remember our beloved Michael.
