Mike and I had a lot of fun times at the V playing euchre. We spent many a Friday nights giving each other a hard time over a beer. Rachel and I will never forget how much Mike supported our local Veterans. He will be missed!

Mike was a good friend of myself and family he would alway be willing to stop and talk or offer to help , it did not matter if it was along the side of the road , in hay field or spreading manure. He sold me some very nice pieces of equipment over the years I was very thankful for them . I will sure miss him as I’m sure you will too but he will always be in my mind
