It has been a long journey of fond memories that we have shared, you were always fun to hang with and for breakfast over the weekend and we could sit for hours just laughing and telling stories of our life at Stage One restaurant on Cumberland Ave. Every now and then we would let Maggie chime in and share her input! How you loved the Chicago Cubs and how happy we all were when they won the World Series! You were an amazing brother-in-law and a wonderful, loving husband to my sister and my best friend. You loved our family and always cared for our mom, if it was to pick mom up from work or take her shopping to driving her to family functions you were that guy that always did it! I promise you that I will always be here for Maggie and know that you don't have to worry that she will be alone, I will always be there for her! I will miss your warm smile and your gentle hugs! Rest in peace Buddy and say hello to Mom, John and all our loved ones that have passed. Love you always, LaVerne

Through a dear friend (and a blind date) we met, fell in love and married. For over 43 years, along with our families & friends we traveled down this path called life. We made so many wonderful memories! We cherished the good times & stood by each other during the bad. We learned from, taught & loved each other every day we were together. Through illnesses we were there for each other to lean on & take strength from. And tho we must part for now, please know that until we can be together again, that I will love you always.

Dear Uncle Mike,
I love you and I thank you for all of your love and support always. For 42 years, we have made each other smile and laugh and Im so grateful to have such fond memories. Growing up and spending time with you and Aunt Margret was so magical. Katie and I would always so HAPPY that our "Vacation" from our parents would be spent with the two of you. Those sweet smelling summer nights, watching Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and lining up a chain of all the dominos all over the living room floor. When I say it was magical, it really was. As I got older and hanging out with you and Aunt Margret watching the Cubbies on WGN was just the way I used to as a kid. You always welcomed me with an open heart and mind. You excepted me for who I was and encouraged me to be the person I am. Thank you for that! I will really miss surprising you with random baked goods or the newest treat I found at Aldi. What I really will miss will be putting up your Christmas tree and reliving all of the wonderful memories as we hang our special treasures. You were so great at remembering when and from who the ornament was from, some well over 40 years old. The little things is what you revered so much. You were so good to Gram, and always were so proud to be her Driver. I was just telling Aunt Margret how on Christmas Eve I would be eagerly awaiting for the Caddy to pull up with all the cargo inside. Seeing you get out and open the door for Aunt Margret and Gram was just so sweet. Then all the bags would start coming out, Gifts, Food, Crafts, Surprises. Christmas could officially start when you three would arrive. Thanks for all of the LOVE!
You always did a great job making me feel one of a kind and very much loved. You taught me my first drinking toast, "Down the Lucy" which was my interpretation of the German toast you were saying. Well it stuck! So here's to you Uncle Mike, to a life that was filled with love, laughter, service, faith, community, and of course Family. Down The Lucy!

I will never forget all the sleepovers, all the games of battleship, playing catch, and trips to the bowling alleys. You were a fun-loving uncle and always interacted with us as kids. I'll never ever forget all the summer block parties at your house. Some of my happiest memories as a kid, Thank you! Rest in peace and sweet dreams.

I have so many fond memories of Michael. He was the person that made me feel comfortable, when meeting John's family for the first time; he put me at ease.
He was a compassionate, loving, empathetic and fun loving person. He definitely had his own sense of humor and we loved laughing together, at many family gatherings and playing those silly yard games. Mike, Marge, John and I had fun times; we can't forget the special service that Jeeves and Jeeves provided, when riding in a "Michael" car.
Mike never said no, when someone needed help, he was always there to lend a hand and even did some rescuing at times.
He was a wonder brother to me, a fantastic and loving uncle to our children and he gave me a sister that I love dearly.
God bless you, Michael, our memories, of you, will be with us forever.
Margaret, I love you and may God send you His blessings and keep watch over you.

Over 50 years of friendship with so many memories. All our "stupid trips" with the gang to Galena, Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan, the camping trip to the Ozarks with the guys (while the ladies stayed home and shopped.) The fun we all had reminiscing about Western Union days and how the guys would go running downtown on their lunch breaks. Mike always knew what they were doing, even if he said he didn't. Mike also knew how to find them when they were missing from action---they were on the roof running. Now Mike has joined Jack and Jim in heaven and can watch them run around while he SUPERVISES. You will be missed, my friend, and we will never forget Magie as a dear and trusted friend. You have my word on that.
Love , Judee

When I think of my Uncle Mike, what comes to mind is an all-around genuinely good guy. I know I'm not the first person who has said or thought that.
Growing up, my Uncle Mike and Aunt Marge were at every occasion, family gathering, birthdays, you name it. He would enter into our kitchen smiling, making jokes and laughing. He was easy to talk to and I always felt at ease around him. I liked seeing him talk to my Dad, they were always laughing about something; I am glad I have those memories.
My Uncle Mike served his country, doing 3 tours in Vietnam while in the Navy. I always had so many questions I wanted to ask him about that time in his life, but never did. I have such respect for him for the loyalty he showed our country.
He was someone you could count on. He and my Aunt Marge have always been there for my sisters and me. He was a good son, brother, Uncle and husband. He loved the city of Chicago, the Bears, and especially the Cubs. The memories I have of him I hold near and dear to my heart. I love him and will miss him.

Uncle Mike, I will always remember our competitive games of battleship and the great conversations we would have while throwing the baseball to each other. Your wisdom and advice has always played a huge role in my life and for that I am grateful. Your love for the Chicago Cubs was always a mystery to me as a White Sox fan. However, it brought me great joy when they won the World Series because no one deserved to experience it more than you. I know you will be watching them and cheering just as loudly from heaven, but I know even more you will be watching and protecting your family and dearest friends. I am very fortunate and blessed to have had you in my life not only as an Uncle, but going forward as a guardian angel. You will be forever in my heart, my thoughts, and my prayers. Your nephew Joey.

I will never forget wonderful Michael. Such a kind sincere man. All the memories at Monclair when Michael would come up and watch us ladies bowl. He always had kind words to all and he was so nice to my grandmother! God bless you Mike God bless you Marge I am honored to be your friend. May you now enjoy peace in heaven where there will be no pain and you can walk and watch over us.
God Bless you Mike.
Love Martha & Jim Holder

Margaret, my prayers and thoughts are with you at this time. Mike was a great guy even though he was a Cubs fan and even my Sox fan husband would have to agree. He was so kind and caring to your mother too. He was her third son. We all will miss him very much, but especially you. Know that I am here for you if you ever need anything. You are my sister by marriage but I consider my real sister.
You both are loved very much by all.

What a great photo of Mike and how I remember him as my next door neighbor for so many years. Always a smile, always a kind word, always a Cubs fan! May he rest in peace and may loving memories bring strength and comfort to Marge and all of the Huck family.

When God gave me a brother, He gave me one that was very special to me. His big heart was always on display in actions and deeds. The giving attitude of love, loyalty and support for the entire family was without question. He served his country with honor and was a true patriot. He established a strong work ethic and was always respected by all in his endeavors. The best decision and most rewarding decision Michael ever made in his life was asking the love of his life, Marge, to marry him.
As a small child we were always together. this continued on thru early adulthood. As we grew older I would think about him and all the good memories we had together. I always thought of him as my best friend. I have to admit that he saved me on many occasion or filled a need. Least I forget our mutual passion for the Cubs. I hope they show the games in heaven for him.
My memories will always be close to my heart. I know you are in a better place and looking down on the entire family telling us, it will be ok. Love you little brother Mike, God Bless M & M
