Michael Joe Altman was born in Cottonwood, Idaho, to Louis and Alleatta Altman on Nov. 25, 1944, met and married his wife, Gloria, on the Camas Prairie on Oct. 4, 1963.
Michael was a traveler by heart and Gloria never knew where their adventures would take them.
Michael, better known as Papa Mike by his eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren, loved to tell his rowdy stories, which often ended with him blowing air and laughing to himself.
He will be remembered lovingly by his wife, Gloria; son, Larry and two daughters, Julie and Jody.
Michael Joe Altman died on March 23, 2018.
Papa Mike will also be remembered by the two people who received his eyes and the more than fifty people who received his skin after his passing.
He was preceded in death by his son, Tiger, his mother, father, and sister-in-law, Pat.
See you Tuesday, Papa.
Michael’s service will be held on Monday, April 2, 2018, at the Grangeville Christian Church at 11 a.m. and will then be buried in his family plot in Kooskia, Idaho.
