Mike Pinter Obituary – In loving memory of Michael John Pinter, the vibrant and compassionate soul who departed from our lives on December 14, 2023, at the age of 44. Born in La Crosse, Wisconsin, on December 24, 1978, Mike was a true embodiment of life, leaving an indelible mark on everyone fortunate enough to know him.

Mike’s presence was synonymous with laughter, and he carried with him a zest for life that encouraged those around him to embrace joy and find humor in every situation. His charismatic personality, coupled with an encyclopedic knowledge on a vast array of subjects, made him a captivating storyteller. A passionate fan of Minnesota sports, an outdoor enthusiast, and a dedicated musician, Mike had a profound love for creating and enjoying music. However, his greatest joy was being a loving father to his two daughters, Elin and Suvi.

A graduate of Mayo High School in Rochester, Minnesota, in 1997, Mike later earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls in 2003. He built a successful career in the insurance industry, most recently serving as the Workers’ Compensation EDI Lead at Western National Insurance Group. In 2017, he exchanged vows with Meghan Sjogren in a picturesque ceremony atop a Colorado mountain, and together they established their home in Northeast Minneapolis.

Mike was preceded in death by his mother, Judith Pinter, paternal grandparents W.C. and Marie Pinter, and maternal grandparents Alphonse and Katherine Schraufnagel. He is survived by his loving family, including his wife Meghan; daughters Elin and Suvi; father Robert Pinter; brother Christopher Pinter; sister Amy (Pinter) Sturtevant and her husband Dan; nephew Hudson; niece Marin; parents-in-law Kim and Deb Sjogren; sister-in-law Sarah (Sjogren) Leslie and her husband Greg; niece Annika; and nephew Benjamin.

To celebrate Mike’s extraordinary life, friends and family are invited to gather at Elsie’s, 729 Marshall St NE, Minneapolis, on December 30th, from 3 pm to 7 pm. It is a time to share memories, find solace in one another, and pay tribute to the remarkable legacy left behind by a man whose spirit will continue to resonate in the hearts of those fortunate enough to have known him. May Mike rest in peace, surrounded by the everlasting love he shared with the world.
