Dec. 10, 1954 – June 7, 2019

Mike was about the sweetest person you could ever meet. He would do anything for those he loved. His compassion and caring were always noticed by everyone he met. Every morning he would be at our house for breakfast and coffee with Charles. I always asked him how he was doing and he’d reply with his catch-phrase, “I’m old, fat and bald.” His sense of humor was always present, even on bad days. We really miss you, Mikey. You will always be in our hearts. Submitted by his brother and sister-in-law, Charles and Debby Ginger
