Mike Schwab of Las Vegas, Nevada, died April 2, 2017, as a result of a motorcycle accident. He was 54.

He was born May 21, 1962, in Billings, and attended schools in Powell and Cut Bank, Montana.

Mike married Tammy Fossen in 1981, and from this marriage they had two children, Michael and Jessica.

In 1990, Mike married Michelle Murphy and Mike adopted Michelle’s son Stephen as his own. Mike and Michelle raised their family in Powell before moving to Las Vegas in 2002.

Mike enjoyed riding his motorcycle, serving and reading Bible scripture to homeless in Las Vegas, and providing a safe haven for teens on Friday nights. He also enjoyed cheering on the Denver Broncos, family reunions in Powell, and performing welding and fabrication projects on the side. Mike’s real pride and joy were his children and grandchildren.
