Michael Quitiquit
Sept. 9, 1953 — Dec. 21, 2021 (age 68)

Michael was predeceased by his parents, Claro A. Quitiquit and Marie “Red Rose” Boggs-Quitiquit; siblings Patricia A. Thompson, Lawrence M. Thompson, Luwana A. Quitiquit, Denise A. Quitiquit and Adrian C. Quitiquit.

Michael is survived by his loving family: children, Jana Quitiquit and Christopher Quitiquit; grandchildren, Dillan Danley, Alexis Quitiquit, Jp Quitiquit, Joshua Wendell Jr., Ariah Wendell and Kinsley Wendell; brothers, Marion C. Quitiquit, Steven D. Quitiquit, Godfrey D. Quitiquit and Robert F. Quitiquit; and sisters, Cheryl A. Anderson, Wanda A. Quitiquit, Lalaine Buonchristiani and Irenia A. Quitiquit; and many nieces and nephews.

Michael was a resident of both Manteca and Courtland. He served in the U.S. Army from 1973 to 1978. He served one year alongside his brother Steven who had just come home from the Vietnam War. Both brothers were in the 82nd Airborne Division.

Michael took early retirement from the U.S. Army Depot in Lathrop, California. He later worked for his tribe as on-site manager of the tribe’s RV park on the Northshore of Clear Lake.

At the time of his death, he was employed by the Sacramento County Irrigation Water District #551 in Courtland, California.

Michael had an infectious laugh and a smile that lit up the room. He enjoyed fishing, trips to local casinos, and tinkering around fixing things. Michael will be remembered for his fun loving goofy personality and his energetic character. He will be missed by all who knew and loved him.

P.L. Fry and Son is honored to be serving the Quitiquit family. A memorial will be on Sunday Jan. 16, at 1:30 p.m. held at P.L. Fry and Son Chapel 290 N. Union Rd. Manteca.
