My condolences to the family on your loss. I played football at KHS with Mike. He was a tough guy and played football in HS with great spirit drive and determination. Before my family moved to Kokomo in 1961, I grew up in Putnam County. We lived in Cloverdale, but my grandparents lived at 21 Sunset Drive in Greencastle. My grand father owned and operated a barber shop in downtown Greencastle and Greencastle is where my mother and her three sisters were born and raised. I have great memories of the town and Putnam County, just like I have great memories of playing football with Mike. Again, my condolences to the family.
