ADD A MEMORY

My memories of Mike go way back. I remember Mike as a big man, a clever/funny man, an intelligent man/interesting man (a science fiction fan) but most of all - I remember Mike as a true gentleman. Life is a series of special moments and I was blessed to share many special moments with Mike and his family particularly in my youth. One such special moment was our 22nd birthdays which we celebrated together in January of 1980.

My heart goes out to the family: Wynona, Joyce, Judy, Emerald, Dusty, Kevin, Kyle and all of Mike's extended family. May "the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus" during this difficult time.

"I have been and always shall be your friend" comes to mind.

Much love,
Debbie

You could always tell how Mike would be when he walked in to work at Advance. He wore his emotions on his sleeve. I'll see you later Mike!

It seems like yesterday when Mike was the big brother who patiently tolerated his Sister’s friends. All those girls constantly in and out of the Rorie’s house! I am thankful for all my memories and pray that the family finds comfort in theirs. Love and peace to each of you.

Mike was always a good guy to me and my friends. His smile and laugh were contagious and I was always jealous of that red car. May he have rest and peace. May the entire family have the grace and peace in the coming days.

Wynona and family,
We are so sad to hear of the passing of Mike. I'll surely miss his humor and smile across our pews.
Prayers and blessings for you all!
