Obituary for Michael Carl Oedekoven

On Thursday, October 25th, 2018, Michael Carl Oedekoven, loving Husband, Dad, Grandpa and Friend, was taken from us suddenly while traveling to a job site near Fromberg, MT, at the young age of 56.
Mike was born March 6, 1962 in Hardin, MT to Mary and Les Oedekoven. He graduated from Shepherd High School in 1980. He began his Civil Construction career at 16 with Billings Precast. He progressed to Barry O’Leary, JTL, H.L. Ostermiller and achieved his ultimate goal in 2005 by starting Asphalt Plus Inc. (API).
On 6-23-1984 Mike married his high school sweetheart, Melinda Maddux. God blessed Mike with three beautiful children that he truly cherished.
Mike will be remembered by his kids as the “Best Dad Ever” (with apologies to those who think your Dad holds that title.) He was artistic, creative, a gifted craftsman, intelligent, humorous, loving and generous. He was the Dad that fixed everything and the Dad that always came to the rescue. He taught his children a tremendous work ethic, determination and the ability to never give up.
Mike was truly passionate about spending time with his family, whether it would be boating, 4-wheeling, shooting, camping or sitting around playing games and shooting the breeze. He enjoyed his morning drive, cup of coffee and cigarette(s).
Mike is survived by his loving wife Melinda of 34 years, his three children Tiffany Oedekoven, Tenille Bomar (Chad), Tyler Oedekoven (Nicole) and three grandchildren, Carlee, Tanner and Trin Bomar. The Watson Families, Mariellen Oxley, his three Siblings, many loved Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Nieces and Nephews all said good bye to Mike as well.
Mike’s memorial service will be held Saturday, 11-3-2018 at 2:00 pm at Smith Downtown Funeral Chapel, 925 S 27th St. Billings, MT 59101. Reception will follow at Red Door Lounge, 3875 Grand Ave. to celebrate his life.
In honor of Mike’s favorite boating/drinking Hawaiian shirt, please wear something celebratory. Mike wouldn’t want us to mourn his death, but rather celebrate his life.
