Mike is survived and sadly missed by his wife Karen; his father Tom; his siblings, Peggy (Bob), Bill (Margie), Tim (Aleili), and Barb (Todd). Mike is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews and extended family and friends. He was predeceased by his mother Helen; sister-in-law Kerry; niece Ketsy; and his faithful walking buddy Roscoe. A man of great compassion, there was never a day when Mike did not have time for his family and friends and was always the first to offer help when needed. Mike wore many hats throughout his business life which included Seismic, Farming, Esso Agent with his brothers and his biggest passion, ranching. He dedicated his life to work and the care of all he knew. He had many interests over the years: fly fishing, trap shooting, 18 hour drives, craps, golf (because he liked being married), but his love of the land and the Porcupine Hills was lifelong. He now has time to practice his passion for team roping, to ensure to his headers, that it will not be just another good outing.
