Michael Alan Vigil
1957 - 2017
Michael Alan Vigil was born in Santa Barbara to Phyllis Valdez Vigil and Edward R Vigil on Jan 19, 1966. He attended San Roque School, La Colina Jr. High and San Marcos with his life long friend Roger Chackel. Michael enlisted in the Navy in 1975 and served aboard the USS Mobile. He married his first love Kathy Barnett. He and Kathy were blessed with a daughter Haley Dawn, who was the apple of his eye. Anyone who knew him know he was a rabid San Francisco 49’s fan.
Michael passed way the morning of Jan 24, 2017 surrounded by his family. His passing leaves a hole in the heart of many. While courageously battling lung disease for more than 20 years, Michael was diagnosed with lung cancer in the Sept 2016, and was sadly taken from us much too soon.
Michael is survived by his father Edward R Vigil of SB, brothers Jerry and Chris of SB, brother Craig of Paso Robles and sister Katherine Dent of Kirksville, MO. He also leaves Kathy Barnett Vigil of SB, daughter Haley Dawn Vigil of LA, niece Sarah McLeod of Kirksville, Mo Brenna Vigil of SB and Caitlynn Vigil of Lompoc. He was preceded in death by his mother Phyllis M. Vigil.
