He will be terribly missed by his sister Pat and his brother Danny from Washington. He's our angel in heaven. Mike was proceeded in death by his Mother, Father & Sister Bett.

Mike will be missed, and most of all all his stories and HUMOR.

He always made you want to believe them too.   Now, Mike is at a better place, watching over all of us now.   So, we best behave and carry on for him always.   If you happen to be out eating some where, please classmates do not run out of food, or Mike will send you nine page letter over running out of food.

I am sorry to hear of Mike's passing.  He was my first 'crush' in Jr High..  such a stud wink  We connected via this web site a few years ago and he sent me a story he'd written about back yard alley shenanigans.  I laughed a lot - he was a character and will be missed.  God bless.

Mike and Carolyn were one of the first couples we had over for dinner after moving back to Utah in '04. I ran into him when he was running his golfing equipment business " I Golf" in Los Gatos California. We became close friends after we both returned to the land of Zion even though Carolyn never seemed to adjust due to the cultural shock many Californians have moving here. You never wondered how Mike felt about you because he was always able tell you to your face. I think we will all miss him and there will never be another like him. RIP old friend. Bill

I met Mike when we both went to Washington Jr. High and then Ogden H.S. We played football. He ran and I did my best to block. He was good athlete and enjoyed playing all the sports. I remember he seperated his shoulder in the last game of our senior year and I think that bother him the rest of his life. He seemed to be always upbeat and on the move. It seemd to me that Mike's priorites in High School were sports, sports, girls and then school. I enjoyed our friendship and he will be missed...
