Mike will always be very much missed. He spoiled my little dog Joey with extra biscuits everyday. Joey loved him. We all loved him. Mike was a very nice friend.

Mark and I send you our sympathy and loving thoughts. Mike was sweet and kind. My memories include when I was very young, Mike pushing me on the swings at your house, and later years chatting with him with updates on all our families at the shoe shop. RIP cousin Mike.

Oh the fond memories we have of the lake and Mikes entertainment. No one will ever replace you and the “hood” hasn’t been the same since y’all left. Everyone knew Mike as my second husband when I would talk about our shenanigans at the lake. You will forever be in our hearts. Deepest condolences to Jean and family. We miss you.

We are so sorry to hear of Mike’s passing. My mother passed 8 years of pancreatic cancer. Mike and I talked about her journey and I my heart broke for him when he told us he had the same thus past fall. We enjoyed our backyard visits. Wonderful conversations. He was a great friend. We will truly miss him.
Prayers to your family during this time.

Jeff and I were so very sorry to hear this sad news of Mikes passing. He was a huge part of our store with his ability to sew repairs in area athletes ball gloves so we could restring them. He repaired many shoes as well. We followed him to being Shell customers enjoying his visits. A very sweet heartfelt man who will be so very missed. You all have our most sincere and deepest sympathies 🙏🎚
