Michael Jordan Strom at the youthful age of 26 entered his eternal dwelling place when he went home to be with the Lord on October 28th, 2017. He was the victim of a vehicle versus pedestrian hit and run accident in Los Angeles, California. He had recently gone there to spend time with his father and brother.
Michael is survived by his wife Griselda Garcia, mother Rebecca Strom, brother Jesse Furtado, sister Amy D’Amico, and sister Laura Trueheart, as well as by his father Arthur Strom, brother Anthony Strom, brother Arthur Strom Jr, brother Adam Beaudry, and sister Alicia Bojorquez, and many other loving step-siblings.
Michael is preceded in death by his eldest brother Adam Furtado and grandparents Gordon and Martha Wray.
Michael was born on 11-06-1990 in Portland, Oregon and raised in Salem, Oregon where he resided throughout his life. He was home schooled by his grandmother for many years before entering private Christian schooling and then attending high school at McKay.
Michael was a deeply caring and giving young man, who loved his family and friends dearly. He enjoyed spending his time laughing, playing with his many nieces and nephews and eating home cooked meals. Mikey was the precious baby of the family and found great joy in his role as an Uncle.
Michael loved his dog Jade and taking her on walks. He could often be found lifting weights in his garage or going on a jog. He enjoyed camping trips in the summer with family and friends, or meaningful conversations discussing beliefs or global trends.
He will be missed tremendously on this earth by his loved ones, but a reunion awaits us in heaven where we will be with him again.
A viewing will be held on November 17th from 1pm-5pm at Virgil T Goldens Funeral Services 605 Commercial St SE, Salem, OR 97301. Michael’s funeral service is scheduled for 11:00am on November 18th at Church on the Hill 2105 Keizer Rd, NE. Keizer, OR 97303.
All of Michael’s family is very thankful to you for your love and support during this difficult time and ask in lieu of gifts or flowers you donate to a charity in honor of our beloved Mikey.
