Michael Sven Vedvik of Kent (Wash.) passed away February 2nd, the day after the Seahawks’ heartbreaking loss in Super Bowl XLIX. Vedvik, an avid Seahawks fan, was only 53. His obituary — published in The Spokesman-Review (Vedvik was born in Spokane) — cites a “lousy play call” as the cause of death, in reference to the Hawks’ ill-fated attempt at a slant route that was intercepted in the end zone.
VEDVIK, Michael Sven Michael Sven Vedvik went to see our Lord Jesus on February 2, 2015 at his home in Kent, WA. Born on December 26, 1961 in Spokane, WA. Michael is survived by his wife Stephanie; daughters Alisha Vedvik, Brittany Mullins (husband Matthew), Chelsea Vedvik; stepdaughters Michelle and Sandy Gaughan; grandson Jayce and granddaughter Layla; father Sven Vedvik, mother MaryAnne Solberg (stepfather Gary Solberg); sisters Tina Piper and Kathrene Peters (husband Dan) and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. Michael attended Rogers High and Spokane Falls Community College. He was a small business owner in Kent, WA and loved his family, work, clients, traveling, the Seahawks and life. We blame the Seahawks lousy play call for Mike’s untimely demise. Mike was greatly loved and will be dearly missed. Funeral will be on February 7th, at 4:00 pm, at Mt. Spokane Church. 6311 E. Mt. Spokane Dr. Mead, WA 99021. Pastor Bob Smith will be officiating.
At least his family has a sense of humor about the whole thing (unlike some other Seahawks fans).
