It is with heartfelt sadness that the family of Michael (Mike) LeRoux Grigsby announce his unexpected passing in Boise, Idaho on November 21, 2019. Mike was 70 years old.
Mike grew up in both Idaho and Washington and after finishing high school he entered the United States Marine Corps. He served in the Vietnam War and was awarded two Purple Hearts as well as numerous other commendations for his service. After his injuries in Vietnam he was sent stateside where he met the love of his life, Nancy Bajovich. Mike and Nancy were married in April 1969, and they had three children. The family settled in Boise, Idaho where Mike graduated from Boise State University in 1981 with a degree in Information Technology.
