Mike, you were a great friend and mentor to me eventually resulting in me pursuing a Law Enforcement career. I am so lucky to have been a part of your family as a neighbor and taking care of Clifford and Kevin whenever you and Bev wanted a night out. You will be missed by so many. RIP My friend….

I have so many memories I could share but not enough space. You were a cherished friend Mike. I am going to miss you like crazy and never forget the adventures we had.
Prayers to Cliff, Kevin, Andrew, Matt, Joyce and Snickers. You will always be in my heart.

Mike was such a faithful man. I enjoyed getting to know him when he and Joyce would visit at Almena UMC. I loved hearing his stories about law enforcement experiences, his business and his family. I have been blessed that I was given the opportunity to know him! I know that God’s first words to him will be “Well done, my good and faithful servant.” My prayers go out to Joyce and his family. May you find peace in knowing that it is not good-bye, but rather until we meet again in heaven.

Mike was that neighbor everybody hopes for. Mike was the first to invite us to a gathering at his house even before we moved into our new house across the street from him. We shared many good times especially sitting on the tailgate of his truck and occasionally enjoying a beer. Surely the Lord has a special place for him. Our prayers for his family. R I P big guy.
