I had the privilege of working and knowing Mike at Triangle. He helped teach me how to run/ fix some of the lazy Susan machines. We enjoyed good conversation and many many laughs. He knew how to make people feel seen and could cheer anyone up with his smile and "Good mornings". Always willing to help any way he could. Mike will be greatly missed.

Mike was a joy to have as a customer at the Winneconne Post Office. He would always have a smile and kind word to share. He would sometimes even share his licorice that he ordered! He will be missed!

You raced a good race but the time has come to put the car on the trailer and head to your next quarter mile. Heaven and the perfect reaction time is waiting for you. We'll all be missing you but we will see you again in the winners circle. God's speed Mike.
