So sorry for your loss he will be greatly missed. I used to work at Irv in housekeeping and as a CNA 5yrs ago. Praying for the family.
I am so sorry Synthia I just can’t hardly believe this Michael was such a great man. My prayers are with you and your boys.
Mike will be sorely missed. He was always cracking jokes and smiling. He was an amazing knife forger. I'm honored to have 3 knives made by him. We will cherish them. Prayers to your family during this time and in the coming days. Love you!
Synthia and family, there is no doubt that Mike is in Heaven! He took such good care of my mom (and me) at Indian Rock Village. He was always smiling and helpful all the time. He was a shining example of how a Christian man should carry out his daily life. He will be truly missed. My prayers go out to each one of you.
Mike you were like a second father to me as I grew up practically living at your house. I wish I could have one more laugh with you on front porch, tell one more story of the day as we all meet back up after hunting a cold Nov morning away. You taught me how clean a deer and got me and Brandon out of more than one right spot! I know you are in a better place now though, prolly hanging out with Dad and catching up on time gone by. Love and miss ya Old Timer. See you on the flip side.
Annette and I are sorry to hear about the loss of your dad.. We will be praying for your family.
I was so sorry to hear of his passing . He touched my daughters (Carly and Cayla ) lives in a positive way and I know they will miss him. My thoughts and prayers are with your family in the coming days ahead as you lay your loved one to rest. May the knowledge of him residing in Heaven with Jesus bring you comfort and peace.
Pop you will be greatly missed.
Mike was a really great guy. Every time I saw him he was smiling and always seemed to be upbeat. I really enjoyed the conversations we had whether it was about work or an idea for a new knife. He will most certainly be missed! Your family is in our prayers.
Michael was always pleasant. One of the nicest persons I knew. We worked together many years.
Prayers for all with love and caring for everyone
Mike, thank you for making me feel welcomed at IRV. Your smile and laughter, wise cracks, and boyish ways are sorely missed. I didn’t know you long but, I know you are a good man and the great Lord above needed you to go Home. May God give your loved ones comfort & peace.
I am so sorry for your loss.......... I pray for comfort from God through these times and may there be many cherished memories.

I'm so sorry to hear about Mike. For the time that I knew him, he was a great father, husband and all around great provider for his family. Sending prayers to his family.
Rest In Peace my sweet cousin, we love you.
I’m so sorry for the families loss. Mike was an extraordinary person. He was a joy to be around. Usually always happy and joking around. He sure brightened up any room he entered. He will be missed by so many. I still can’t imagine a world without him in it. I know the family will feel this tragedy for years to come. I’ll be praying for everyone. I’m sure your aware Synthia, a part of him will be with you always.
Prayers and much love to the family. Mike was a wonderful man who will be greatly missed. He had a way of making those around him smile and laugh. I don't know of a time he was without a smile himself...always joking.
