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.

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.

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.
