Gary Mikel Thomas, known affectionately as Mikel, of Post Falls, ID, passed away unexpectedly on April 9th, 2024, at his home in Post Falls. He was born on September 26th, 1986, to his loving parents Gary W. Thomas and Tracy Hedge.

Growing up in Coeur d'Alene, ID, Mikel attended Lake City High School and graduated in 2005. He pursued a career in the service industry and found joy in bartending at the Coeur d'Alene resort for many years.
