I was very sad to hear of Mike's passing. While I didn't have a lot to do with him at work, on the few occasions I did, he always had a smile on his face and was very pleasant and polite. I was sorry to hear about his illness, and am very sorry for his family for their loss. Tina - I did meet you once as we passed on the sidewalk at Stoney Creek. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your boys at this very sad time. I pray that the happy memories of your time with Mike bring you comfort and peace always. With warm regards.

I was very saddened to read about the passing of Mr. Beitel. I knew him to be a very kind person. While Joshua was my student, his father was always very supportive of him. The family is in my prayers.

To the Beitel Family:

I was very saddened to read about the passing of Mr. Beitel. I knew him to be a very kind person. I enjoyed having Joshua as a student when he was in fifth grade. His dad was always very supportive of him. Take care. You are in my prayers.

From what I knew of Mike, he was a loving father and husband. He told me that his wife Tina was his best friend and more so he never had a bad word to say about her. In my opinion, if there was a couple who should be together it was them. This loss for Tina saddens me deeply. Personally, I appreciated him assisting with me and leading in cub scouts. Even throughout out his medical issues he supported his son in scouts. We had conversations about our belief and love for God and how he came to lean on the Lord. I believe the Lord is now holding him. I will forever be thankful to and respectful of Mike.

To my Sister and nephews. My prayers are with you. I give God great thanks, and praise; to have been honored, and privileged to have known this great man. I am most blessed to have called him my Brother. I will miss him all my days of living, till i too shall meet him again by the river of life and beneath the tree of eternal life. (Rev 21:1-5)
I love you Sis, Matt and Josh.
May our God Jesus Christ, comfort you, and guide you through this most difficult time.
(philippians 1:19-25)

Our family has never known such a tragic loss as our beloved Mike. Our loss is heavens gain. Mike was a one of kind. A man who so loved his family and friends. He will be deeply missed. May God comfort us all who knew him, and loved him, and now miss him.
Philipians 1:19-23
for I know that through your prayers and the help given by the Spirit of Jesus Christ, what has happened to me will turn out for my deliverance. (20) I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death. (21) For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. (22) If I am to go on living in the body, this will mean fruitful labor for me. Yet what shall I choose? I do not know! (23) I am torn between the two: I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far;

Mike was a wonderful son-in-law, but really he was more a son to me then a son-in-law. He came into our family 25 years ago and every year was precious. From the time he met Tina she was the apple of his eye. From the time they married, he could not wait to become a dad and a great dad he was to two wonderful boys. He was saved and baptized and he became a Christian, he loved the Lord Jesus. Theirs was a Christian home. I know he is resting at peace with the Lord with no more pain. It was so hard to watch him suffer these last four years. Tina became his caregiver and together they put up a terrific fight against the cancer. I am not saying good-bye, because I know we will meet again.

Mike was a wonderful Son-In-Law. To me he was the other son that I never had. From the time he entered our lives in the summer of 1985, it was meant to be. He endured the good times with us, as well as the bad. Many times I thanked God for sending him to us. From the time he met Tina, she was the light in his eyes. Their love for one another is so great. I know in my heart that he is at rest and in no more pain, but I wanted so bad for him to stay, it was not meant to be. Now God has taken a most precious flower to add to that wonderful Garden and I know we will see him again one day. Now it is up to us, the family, to make sure that Tina and the boys are taken care of. God will give us strength to get through this, but Mike will forever be in our hearts and on our minds.
