Michael “Mike” R. Giddings, 63, of Eugene, formerly of Sweet Home and Lebanon, suddenly and unexpectedly passed away on Saturday, Oct. 9, 2021.

Mike was born April 27, 1958, in Lebanon to Charles W Giddings and Vergie A Giddings (Corson).  He was raised in Sweet Home and attended Foster Elementary, Sweet Home Junior High and graduated from Sweet Home High School in 1976 as salutatorian. Mike then went on to attend Oregon State University. 

Mike worked for Sweet Home School District following his graduation and then went on to work at various mills, including Boise Cascade and White Plywood. He worked many years for Panolam Industries before taking a position with Suddekor, LLC in Agawam, Mass. At the time of his passing, he was a business owner, traveling all over the beautiful Pacific Northwest.

In 1980, Mike married Gayle Seiber of Sweet Home. Together they had two daughters, Kristin and Rhianna.  They later divorced.

Mike enjoyed fishing, hunting, antler hunting, watching sports, especially Oregon Ducks football and Atlanta Braves baseball and spending time with his family.
