In memory of
Michael L Eisenhauer Nov 24-1946 - Feb 14, 2017 Michael Lynn Eisenhauer passed away February 14, 2017, in the Boise Veteran's Hospital at the age of 70 after a long, arduous battle with COPD. Mike was born on November 24, 1946, in Salina, Kansas, to Melvin and Marjorie Eisenhauer. As a child his family moved to the Treasure Valley where his father worked as a dairy farmer. When he wasn't busy helping run the family farm, he could be found hunting or fishing - which would become his lifelong passion. Mike had three children during his 26 years of marriage with Shelley Hughes. He retired from the US Air Force in 1985, after proudly serving his beloved country for 22 years as a Medic. After retiring from the armed forces, Mike put his entrepreneurial expertise to work and started his own cabinetry business. He had an intricate eye for detail and it showed in the quality of his work. Since retiring from the cabinet business, he taught himself to become a master knife craftsman. His blades were legendarily sharp - which numerous friends and family can attest. Mike enjoyed his golden years with wife of 17 years, Philomena. He was an avid outdoorsman, a great guitarist and singer, lover of music, skilled bowler and a karaoke enthusiast. In the '70s Mike and his brother became Montana State Horseshoe Champions. He was very patriotic and extremely passionate about politics. He enjoyed lively banter with those who disagreed with his views. Mike was a loving and caring friend to everyone he met. Mike is survived by his wife Philomena Eisenhauer of Middleton; His children- Patrick & Jennifer Eisenhauer of Nampa; Carrie & Mathew Ketchum of Durango, CO; Kelly Eisenhauer of Middleton; his numerous beloved grandchildren; His siblings: Roger & Joan Eisenhauer of Caldwell, Connie & Ed Tilley of Kuna, and Janet Evans of Nampa. He is preceded in death by his mother and father. There will be a celebration of life Saturday, Feb 18th at 3pm at the Caldwell Elk's Lodge. We are asking guests to bring a side dish or dessert. Mike will be cremated and his ashes will be dispersed at a favorite hunting spot this spring. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the COPD Foundation. The family would like to express their enormous gratitude to the Boise VA Step-Down Unit staff for their loving, professional, and compassionate care given to him and family throughout his final days. We miss you already Dad.
