MICHAEL ARNOLD LENCI

Michael Lenci of Bellevue, WA, passed away on November 20, 2018, surrounded by his loving family, after a long courageous battle with Multiple Myeloma. He was 77.

Michael was born in Virginia, MN, on April 3, 1941. He graduated from the Dunwoody College in Automotive in Minneapolis, MN, and pursued his lifelong love of cars. He moved with his wife, Kaye, to Bellevue in 1968. In 1973, he founded Bellevue Auto Service & Electric and passionately ran the company for 43 years.

Mike enjoyed the outdoors, restoring classic cars, watching old western movies, and following his favorite football teams. He was a sportsman and loved camping, observing wildlife and hiking with his family.

Michael is survived by his wife Kaye Lenci, his daughters Kristen Lenci and Katherine Lenci (Claudio Davalos), two grand-daughters, and siblings Barbara Ferster, David Lenci, and Ginger Gabriel. All will deeply miss him.

A Memorial Service and Celebration of Life for friends and family will be held Saturday, December 15, 2018, 1:00pm at Saint Andrew’s Lutheran Church, 2650 148th Ave SE, Bellevue, WA.
