I am so sorry to hear of Mike’s passing. He was a very kind & friendly man who loved his wife and family. He graciously cooked many hamburers & Bratwursts, for his neighbors and the Hoofers Tap Dance group. He will be truly missed. Rest well my friend. You will be missed.

Recalling those brief times with Mike at our annual Hoofers & Hunks outdoor fun-and-games parties, it was always a pleasure to talk with and listen to his humor as he cooked those burgers and brats to our taste. With good memories we will miss you, Mike.
