    Obituary Michael Jon Moffet, age 75, of Foresthill, California, died at Sutter Auburn Faith Hospital on January 28th, 2011, from an extremely rare cancer. During this illness, he bravely battled the cancer and its effects and did not want his friends and family to worry or suffer because of him.
    He was born in 1936 in Fremont, Nebraska to John Alfred and Velma Doris Moffet. His family returned to California, where he started school in Modesto and graduated from Sir Francis Drake High School in San Anselmo. He later attended San Jose City College where he received his Associate in Arts. He continued his education at San Jose State University, earning quite a few more credits. He had a lifelong love for learning.
    Mike’s dream of working in electronics was realized when he enlisted in the Navy. After completing his training as an Electronics Technician, he was deployed to the Far East where he served in Korea. After Korea, he reenlisted in the Navy, thus beginning his military career. Thereafter, he was transferred to the United States and assigned to the U.S. Naval Security Engineering Facility in Washington D.C. There, he met Pat, whom he married. They were transferred to Japan, where their two sons, Alan and Brian, were born. Mike was then transferred to serve at Naval Schools Command, Treasure Island, San Francisco. He and Pat became proud parents again when Suzanne was born. Mike later served in the Mediterranean and Vietnam. He retired after 21 years of service.

    After retiring, Mike went to work for Reliant Heating and Control as General Manager. He and Pat moved to Foresthill when the company relocated to Auburn.

    Mike had many interests and became involved in community activities. He joined the Foresthill Historical Society and served as President, Vice President, Treasurer and Docent. He created the web sites for the Foresthill Divide Historical Society and Placer County Historical Society. He also scanned and archived historical photographs to preserve them and make them more widely available for use, such as in the museum and in publications.
    Mike was an early pioneer in personal computers and used his knowledge to help others by assisting with their computers and teaching classes at the Senior Center. His expertise was also used to help sort, test and price electronic donations made to the fire department to help them raise money for equipment.

    Mike is survived by his wife, Pat; his son and daughter-in-law, Alan and Tricia; his son and daughter-in-law, Brian and Naomi; his daughter and son-in-law, Suzanne and Erik Wilson; five grandchildren, Kyle, Ryan and Kalyn Moffet, and Erika and Zachary Wilson; and his sister, Joan Emerson. He is further survived by nephews, other relatives and many friends.  [2
