    Michael was my brother in law. But I consider him a brother. He had been in my life since I was two years old. He was a great man and he will be missed by our entire family. We love you Mike, always and forever. RIP until we meet again. 🥲💔❤️

    Mike was a true brother of the Company D 151 Infantry, Airborne Ranger Veterans. He served with honors in Vietnam in 1969.. The men stayed in close contact most of their lives upon returning home in late 1969. Many reunions and get togethers for breakfast, Veteran Day Parades, and Christmas luncheons. Mike was there most of the time talking about sports, his grandkids, and of course Sharon. You will be missed Mike!!! Love you!!C
    Rangers Lead the Way!!

    I knew Mike from softball to Pickleball and he was always a joy to be around. His sense of humor and joking around made playing with him and against him a fun experience. Definitely going to miss him.

    A warm and welcoming man – he was a family man who had no problem looking at other people as part of his family. He will be missed – but his legacy and precious memories will live on!

    Sharon and family, my name is Patty Oskay and I worked with Mike at Acorn Distributors for many years, he was my sales rep in Evansville – which we all knew was “God’s country”. Funny story, with in the last year or less, I was calling a customer with an 812 area code and absent mindedly called Mike! When he said hello, I said John (the customer I was calling) and he said “no” and I said “Mike?” and he said “Patty?” We talked for a few minutes and caught up with each others lives over the past years, my how time flies! I truely enjoyed our conversation with him, he was still the same funny guy I knew.
    I am sorry for your loss, Mike was a great – funny guy and I am grateful for the time I shared with him Acorn. I will keep all of you in my prayers.
