Michael John Ulepic, a longtime resident of Boulder City, died on March 14, 2020. Mike was born in Euclid, Ohio on January 16, 1949 to Joe and Dorothy Ulepic (both deceased). After 22 Euclidean winters, Mike decided to move west to California in 1971. The allure of southern Nevada was too hard to resist, and he ended up stopping short and settled in Las Vegas. His future wife, Mary Carroll followed a year later. They were wed in Bicentennial Park in Boulder City in 1972. In 1973 he started with the Clark County Fire Department as a fire inspector. Two years later he became an engineer and lived every little boy's dream, driving fire trucks until he retired in 2000. He moved from Las Vegas to Boulder City in 1983 where had a few business ventures including a backhoe and dump truck service, Nevada Industrial Controls and Boulder Water Company. Mike was actively involved with the community - a past member of the Boulder City Chamber of Commerce and the Sunrise Rotary Club, as well as a member of the Boulder City Elks Lodge for 38 years.

When not working at his many different jobs, Mike could be found on the golf course. He was a longtime member of Winter Wood Golf Association in southern Nevada, as well as Pine Canyon in Flagstaff, Arizona. Once a year Mike and his brothers Joe, Tom and Dave would meet up in Boulder City or Cleveland, Ohio or suburban Washington, DC or some exotic golf destination to play golf. This became known as the "Brother's Open", with the winner taking home the 'Golden Plaque.'

Mike is survived by his wife Mary, daughter Caireen, son-in law David Bober, brothers Joe (Marilou), Tom (JoAnne) and David (Sheryl), sisters Judy Sustar (Roger) and Terry Krause (Jim deceased), 10 nieces and nephews, three grand puppies and friends too numerous to mention.

The family is planning a remembrance with a church service and a golf outing followed by another 'service' at the Boulder City Elks Lodge. Instead of flowers, donations can be made to the Boulder City High School Golf Program in Mike's name.

Services are pending.

My sincere condolences to Mike's family. I met Mike a few years ago. He was interested in purchasing land I had listed. He was such a likeable guy. Mike may your soul rest in peace. Mark Anthony Rua

Caireen, I'm so sorry for your loss. I always loved your parents, they always made me feel so welcome, on the many sleepovers we had as kids. May you find some peace and comfort during this difficult time. Much love to you and your mom.

Dear Mary and Family

I am so sorry to hear about Mike.
It sure hits close to home when we all were such good friends in high school. He was much too young. I hope he did not suffer.
My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. I hope that time will bring you peace.
