My heart pours out to the family and what all they have been through. Mike was a great friend, coworker, employee but most importantly, a great human being. Loved his family, his job, and being outdoors. We all will have him on our minds this fall when climbing into a tree stand. We all are going to miss his smile and laughter.

Mike and I worked side by side for many years. His commitment to our company and customers was unmatched. More than a coworker, Mike was a true friend. He always challenged those around him to be their best. He can never be replaced. Godspeed my dearest friend Mike. Blessings to those left behind. Never to be forgotten.
