Loving Husband of 47 years to Carolyn Louise Jory. Mike loved his wife.
Whether they were adventuring in Central America or Alaska, or swimming with the whales in Maui, or camping and fishing in their beloved Sierra Nevada, Mike loved the outdoors. Graduate of Lodi High School 1956, Mike enlisted in the US Army and spent several years in Japan.
He and Carolyn lived in Volcano, California for 47 years, surrounded by the nature they loved and their many dear friends.
Mike is preceded in death by his loving wife Carolyn, parents Walter "Bud" and Eleanor Jory, brother Jay Jory, sister Melinda Mettler, son Craig.
Mike is survived by his children Dr Michael Jory and his wife Rhonda, Michelle (Jory) Mullen and her husband Mike, Deborah Jory, step-son Terry Ertz, grandchildren Parker Jory, Grant Jory, Craig Mullen and wife Meilin, Claire (Mullen) Borgman and husband Luke, and great-grandson Michael Borgman, sister-in-law Kathy Goehring, brother-in-law Leroy Mettler, best friend Mike Stroude and Coco.
Mike so enjoyed sushi, swimming, fishing, hiking and almost anything outdoors…but mostly, being with his beloved wife Carolyn.
A joint Celebration of Life for Mike and Carolyn will be held in the Spring of 2023.
