Michael Dennis McKee, age 67, passed away very peacefully on August 5, 2020. Michael was a true renaissance man. He had a BS in Geology and worked in Alaska and Utah. He bicycled across the United States, coast to coast. Then he worked in the restaurant industry, was a dancer, writer, artist, ice climber, songwriter, musician, meditator, master gardener, computer instructor, website designer and publisher. He gained his Masters degree so that he could do counseling locally. He was a professional photographer, receiving the Paul Conklin Award for “Best Photograph” at the Jefferson County Fair. Always spiritual he was an active member of Unity of Port Townsend.
Michael was an organ donor and generous philanthropist to local and national arts, nature, and spiritual organizations and people. He was predeceased by his wife of 27 years, Karen Wolkoff, and is survived by his sisters Mary Klingler and Erin McKee, and girlfriend Trudy Roush.
Michael had a true zest for life, which stayed with him right up to the end. In that, he inspired us all!
