Obituary

Michael David Anfinson, 58, died of a heart attack at his Des Moines home Thursday, May 11, 2017.

Mike was born in Des Moines, Iowa, April 2, 1959, the second of six children, to Bernard James and Phyllis Irene (Chesnutt) Anfinson.

Mike worked as an IT Professional for Wells Fargo, FCStone, and most recently, Heartland Coop. Mike was a 1977 graduate of Hoover High School. After high school he attended DMACC. Mike enjoyed four-wheeling in his Jeep, golf, playing guitar in pick-up bands, and working on cars.

In his youth, Mike was active in Boy Scout troop 211 and enjoyed many overseas trips with his troop.

Mike married Heidi Hoffbauer in 1998. They amicably divorced in 2015.

He was a loyal friend, husband, partner, father and brother. The happiest day of his life was the birth of his son, Jacob, in 1998. His most tragic was losing him two weeks later.

Mike is survived by his partner Susan Turner, brother James of Des Moines, two sisters Jane (Bob) Krause of Urbandale and Mary (Tony) Brown of West Des Moines, and five nieces. He was preceded in death by his parents, his sister, Linda Sue Anfinson, brother, John Anfinson, and son, Jacob Michael Anfinson.
