PORTLAND, Ore. – It was a day of overwhelming love as more than 650 people came to pay their last respects to Mike Osborne at a May 20 memorial service. Osborne, 49, died May 13 of pneumonia. He served as executive vice president/CFO for First Tech Credit Union, was very active in legislative affairs with the Credit Union Association of Oregon and served on the board at Northwest Corporate. In addition, he also served with the Beaverton School Board and the March of Dimes. His memorial service was held at Westview High School in Portland. Kathy Ellis, past state director of the Greater Oregon Chapter March of Dimes, delivered the eulogy. “He was as much at home wandering the halls of Capitol Hill as he was in the Capitol in Salem or meeting with business leaders locally,” Ellis said. “He was very persuasive, be it talking about the March of Dimes, the credit unions or the Beaverton School District.” Ellis said Osborne gave so much of his time but never complained. “I know all of us are saying, `This is such a shock, what can I do?’ I believe the answer is: Become involved, give your time,” Ellis said. “Follow your passion. You can make a difference, just as Mike has.”
