Michael Downing Obituary
MICHAEL DOWNING It is with great joy and sorrow that we are here to celebrate my father, Michael Anthony Downing, 50, of Anchorage, Alaska, going home May 10, 2011, to be with our "Lord and Savior Jesus Christ." He was born March 17, 1961, to proud parents, Leon Ellsworth Downing Jr. and Edna M. Downing in Dayton, Ohio, and was a 45-year resident of Nevada. Michael was the third of five children the Downing's had, Philip, Lori, Michael, Curtis and Craig. He may have been the middle child, but he was not a middle person, he loved the construction industry especially heavy equipment where he spent over 20 years as an "operator." Another gift my father had was the ability to make people laugh whether at him or themselves, he truly loved to make everyone around him happy, always knew just what to say to brighten a sad day and make all your worries fade away. Michael is survived by his daughters, Mikka and Keysha; his son, Mikey; granddaughter, Keona; grandsons, Kaycee Vinson and Zackary Sims; great-nieces, Essence and Anjel Foster; great-nephew, Jamarcus Foster; and a host of kids that came to know him as "Big Mike." There will be a memorial at 2 p.m. Sunday, May 22, at Lorenzi Park, 333 W. Washington Ave.
