Windhorst, Maurice Mike
a Veteran, 59, of Phoenix, passed away unexpectedly on December 5, 2008. Mike was born on December 7, 1948 in Indianapolis, Indiana, to the late Forrest and Amelia Windhorst. He is survived by his sister Donna; aunts, Helen Craig of Indianapolis, Martha Farrell of Florida, Anna Marie Feld of California; and numerous cousins. He moved to Phoenix, Arizona in 1958. He attended St. Agnes and St Thomas the Apostle grade schools, graduated in 1966 from Arcadia High School and attended Phoenix College. Mike proudly served in the U.S. Army and spent one year in Vietnam. After retiring from his self-owned pool business, Mike lived out his passions. He loved racing and anything involving mechanics – he always tried to make something better than it was. Over the years, he was a member of Corvette Racers, Desert Corvettes, Vettes and Rods Scottsdale, Pro Auto Sports Arizona and CAARS. Since 2005, Mike was secretary of Xtreme Corvettes. Mike was a good person and friend, with a kind soul. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him. Mike’s sister, Donna, would like to thank Mike’s many friends and neighbors for their support and the staff of Mayo Clinic, particularly Dr. Jesse Bracamonte, and nurses Denise and Brenda, for caring for Mike over the past several years. A Memorial Service will be held at Whitney & Murphy Funeral Home, 4800 E. Indian School Road, December 20th at 10:00am, with Interment following at St. Francis Catholic Cemetery, 2033 N. 48th Street.
