We just got word of Mike's passing. We met several years ago at our winter home at Lake Francis. We were looking forward to him coming down this year. We knew there was something wrong, but had no idea what. His death came as a real shock. We treasured his friendship and will miss him very much.

Our heartfelt prayers go out to all the family. The news was quite a shock! Mike was the kind of guy you never forget. We used to have so much fun playing in the M&M Golf outings and the vehicle treasure hunts. Those were the good ol days! Also bowling with Mike and Marilyn on Sat. nite league. Lots of memories...…..and many of your own to hang on to.

Dear family of Mike's,

I got to know Mike and Marilyn over the years since we had a mutual connection, Teresa (Marilyn's buddy) and Bruce Martin. Talking to Marilyn was like talking to one of my MANY sisters and then Mike turned out to be like a brother, not to mention Wally and his adventures! What a hole their 2 passings will leave. The good thing is now they'll be back together. God be with you all and may you have peace one day soon.

Sincerely,

Barb

I am so very sorry for your loss. I have so many great memories of Mike and Jeff at the ball diamonds and at my grandparents farm growing up.
I know he hated the nickname Rudolph and I don't know how many people used it but I always meant it as a term of endearment so one last time....good bye dear Rudolph you will be greatly missed.
Lots of love to you and your family Jeff.
God Bless
