I met Mike at John Deere Jr. high school. Mike and I had a situation in Jr. High School, another situation in high school, a different situation at Black Hawk College, and a memory situation after our college days.


I never told Mike this, but one thing I always envied Mike about, was his beautiful had writing! Mike wrote left handed, and he had the most beautiful hand writing I’ve ever seen! Most people wouldn't think, that a rough and tough football player, could write so elengently! I was also happy to see Mike succeed in his business career.  May he (RIP)

I knew Mike in junior high and high school.  He was a wonderful athlete.  He was a guard at the other end of the line from my high school sweetheart and later husband, Roger.  They were tough and talented and added a lot to a great team.  Teamwork was the key to success.  Mike was a good guy and I'm sorry to hear of his passing.

I first encountered Mike in Dad's club baseball, either grade school or jr. high.  I remember his teammates calling him "Ski".  We always had to back up the outfielders for Mike. We always dreaded his at bats. 

On the MHS football team I was the backup center and I usually scrimaged against the first team defense, and Mike played middle defensive guard right in front of me.  I can attest that he was one tough SOB to block.  Possibibly the strongest guy in our class, certainly pound for pound.    Mike was not a real talkative guy and I never got to know him very well, but I sure respected him.  He played hard and clean.  He was a rock on both offense and defense.  And what a great smile. 

He was likely one of the best wrestlers in MHS history.  A consummate athlete.  I also recall that he made a name for himself during the '70's when arm wrestling was momentarily popular nationally.  No surprise there.  Very sorry to hear of his passing.
