Michael Wayne Bagley
1967 - 2014

Michael Wayne Bagley was born July 4, 1967 in Salt Lake City, Utah as fireworks celebrated our nation's birth. He was the third of what would eventually be a family of seven children born to Donald and Elaine (Geisler) Bagley.

Michael's early childhood was full of adventure, a little mischief and much joy. At 11 years of age, Michael developed Type 1 diabetes. Despite this significant challenge, he enjoyed a youth spent camping and exploring the outdoors, developing musical talents, and learning his duty to God. Michael grew up in Fruit Heights, Utah which provided all the necessary elements for a happy, growing boy. His playground was the orchards, fields and gully of Baer Canyon at the base of Francis Peak. He graduated from Davis High School in 1985 where he actively participated in orchestra, concert band and marching band, which he was the Drum Major. He also played on the school soccer team. He attended Weber State University and Salt Lake Community College.

As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Michael was called to serve a two-year mission to the Connecticut Hartford Mission in 1986. Following his honorable release, he eventually married and started his family. He was blessed with four beautiful children. They were the absolute joy of his life and he devoted himself to them. He was happiest when spending time with his family. He enjoyed family reunions, taking one of his children-or his father-on a business trip, and relaxing at his uncle's ranch in southern Utah.

Michael was an active member of the LDS faith. He served in a variety of callings including Sunday school teacher, scout leader, and as a high priest group secretary. He built a successful career working as the western regional sales manager for 3M Company where he was responsible for their line of fall protection and safety products.

Life was not easy for him. In addition to the ups and downs typical for most families, Michael carried the added burden of increasing poor health due to his diabetes. His life was preserved time and time again for which he and his family were most grateful. He descended from the pioneer stock that built the Salt Lake Valley and continued their tradition of facing hardship with determination and perseverance. He never gave up and remained committed to doing all in his power to provide for his family up to the day he died.

Michael passed from this life following a cardiac arrest on Saturday, July 12, 2014. His death, while mourned by his loved ones, freed him from the pain and suffering of mortality. He was blessed to spend the hours preceding his death surrounded by his children, siblings and mother and father.

He is survived by his four children, six siblings, and parents.

He was a devoted father, a caring brother, and loving son. His life mattered. He made a positive difference in this world and will be remembered with great fondness.

Funeral services were scheduled for 11:00 a.m. Saturday, July 19, 2014, at the LDS chapel located at 4501 West 11800 South Riverton, Utah, 84096. A viewing was held on Friday, July 18, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. as well as one hour prior to the service on Saturday at the same location as the funeral. His body was interred at the Kaysville City Cemetery located at 500 East Crestwood Road.

The family wishes to thank the medical staff and hospital staff at Intermountain Medical Center for their care and loving concern for Mike and his family.
