(Feb. 16, 1952 – March 13, 2017)

Michael Joe Brummond, 65, of Cody, died unexpectedly of a heart attack on Monday, March 13, 2017.

This quintessential Wyoming cowboy was born Feb. 16, 1952, in Cody. His parents were Harold and Betty Brummond and his older sister, Toni Brummond, who preceded him in death.

Mike grew up in Cody but finished his last two years of high school in Denver. In 1977 he traveled to Saudi Arabia working as a materials manager and then off to Southeast Asia where he worked as an oil field tool pusher. He was revered for his ability to fix any problem that might arise.

At the young age of 39, Mike married the love of his life, Lindy, and they always joked that the coyote had been caught. She often referred to him as Sam Elliot from Meeteetse.

Following his tenure overseas, he stayed closer to home and honed his carpentry skills into a master craftsman. Not only was he a great craftsman, but he was always willing to mentor new carpenters.

Throughout the years, Mike had a love of riding in the mountains and taking pack trips with some of his greatest friends while exploring the Wyoming backcountry. Mike loved his mules and telling countless stories of hunting in the Thorofare.

He is survived by his wife, Lindy of 26 years; his sons, Dusty Lasseter and Kelly Waldo and numerous cousins. 

There will be a celebration of life Sunday, March 19, from noon to 3 p.m. at the South Fork Fire Hall in Cody.

Atwood Family Funeral Directors assisted the family with the arrangements.
