Michael Hale

December 2, 1957 — December 23, 2023

Hoffman

Michael Elvis Hale passed into the arms of Jesus on December 23, 2023, at the age of 66 years old. He passed away in his loving home in Hoffman, Minnesota while holding the hand of his daughter. 

He was born on December 2, 1957, in Bakersfield, California. He was the last of 6 children to Robert and Dorothy Hale. He spent most of his school years in the Wasco, California area making many lifelong friends. 

Mike was married on October 14, 1977, to Debbie Ann Mulkey in Wasco. He worked in the agricultural business while they raised their two children. 

Mike moved to Minnesota in 2000 and moved to Hoffman in 2006. He spent his summers working in the hay in California, and his winters caring for his grandchildren in Minnesota. In 2013, he went to paint a building at Andes Tower Hills (Ski Area/RV Park) and became maintenance manager within two weeks. 

He was very proud of his work and his crew, but his greatest joy was his children and grandchildren. He also enjoyed his church and his faith held strong until the end.

Michael is survived by his wife Debbie Hale, son Nichael Hale (Ashley) of Breezy Point, MN, daughter Jessah Hale of Hoffman, and bonus son Michael Kent (Amber) of Redwood Falls, MN; his three sisters Betty Smith (Ed), Barbara Anderson (Gary), and Cindy Anderson (Chris), and one brother William Hale (Dena). Grandchildren Baylor Kardell, Alexis Hale (Zach Carrick), Jason Hale, Madison Hale, Annabella Hale, Dania Hale, Danika Kent, Maci Kent, and great grandchild Harlee Mae Carrick. Lifelong friends Melissa Kent, Christine Hale, Lori Roeman, Shaylee Anderson, and the Anderson Family. 

With such a large family he was a favorite uncle/great uncle to many. You didn’t have to be blood to be family to Mike. 

Mike was preceded in death by his father Robert Hale, mother Dorothy Holt, stepfather Raymond Holt, and sister Evie Gallop.

A Memorial Service will be held at 2:00 PM on Tuesday, January 16, 2024, at the Covenant Church in Alexandria, MN. Visitation will be one hour prior to the service.
