My sympathies to Mike's family. We were classmates at Sumner High School in the class of 1978. Mike was a funny guy and made us laugh many times.
Sincerely,

When we think about Mike, our memory is of a high school student learning how to work on a farm. Mike was good learner and tried to do things the right way. On Saturday , he would eat lunch with us. I wasn't a good cook but he ate it anyway. Rick always remembers his high school helpers and is proud of their accomplishments in life. We were sorry to hear of his passing. Condolences to the whole family
