Michael Ansfield

January 21, 1945 – August 16, 2021

Dr. Michael Ansfield died on 16 August 2021 while being held and smuggled by his wife Molly, daughter Chelsea and sister Bobbi. He really was a man. Growing up in Milwaukee, he graduated from Shorewood High School in 1963 and attended the undergraduate and medical schools of the University of Wisconsin, Madison. He trained at hospitals in San Antonio and Galveston, Texas, and served two years in public health at the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. He was a fellow at UCSF and worked in clinical and research medicine at public hospitals in San Francisco. From 1982 to 2007, he had a lung practice in Colorado Springs and was an intensive care unit at the ICU at Memorial Hospital. He was the kind of doctor other doctors would be: knowledgeable, creative, kind and constantly working to get better for patients. After retiring from his practice in 2007, he spent 8 years as a volunteer his time as a treating physician at UCSF and trained new physicians to practice ICU medicine at the highest standard. From 2015-2020, he worked at the ICU at Highland Hospital in Oakland, California. His first marriage was to Linda, and they had a son, George. Mike later married Molly, and they were together for almost 30 years until his death. He was a funny, the kind of guy who would eat middles out of Oreos and then replace them. He had a magnetism that forgave all the fun he played, and actually made everyone love him for it. He was bigger than life, sharply focused on helping others. The world is really better because he was in it. He survives his wife Molly Ansfield, daughter Chelsea Dodgen (Justin Scheck), son George Ansfield (Tabitha), sisters Bobbi Marks, Alice Ansfield and Amy Scott (Bill), grandchildren Henry and Owen Scheck and numerous nieces and nephews who miss him in pieces. A private service will be held. Donations can be made to the Eagle Valley Land Trust ( In memory of the great Dr. Michael Ansfield, you can enjoy an Oreo cookie. But check it out first.
