Preceding him in death was his father, Lonnie, and his grandparents.
Mike received his education in Walsh, Colo., then in 1976 he moved to Missouri and attended Purdy School and graduated from Cassville High School. He was employed at Seven Valleys Concrete Company in construction. Mike was a very dedicated Christian. He served as Deacon at Lohmer Full Gospel Church, the founder of Thousand Rounds Men's Ministry, taught the adult Sunday School class, youth leader for 23 years and ran the sound system for the church. He was co-director of the Greg Fulp Memorial Youth Camp and was a past member of Volunteer Fire Departments. Mike was a caretaker to all of his loved ones along with being a peacemaker. His family was his greatest joy in life. He also enjoyed the outdoors, sports, hunting and fishing and never met a stranger.
Mike was the world to so many. To those lucky enough to cross his path, you were given unconditional love, constant understanding, incredible knowledge and most of all a glimpse of the true character of Christ. And for that, we are all grateful. He was his oldest daughter's biggest fan, his son-in-law's spiritual guide, and with Brenda, he showed a love so beautiful it became an example for them to strive for. He was his son's "huntin" buddy, his baby girl's hero and his wife's best friend. He was a one of a kind man, who we do not know how we can live without.
Funeral services were held on Sunday, Nov. 14, 2010, in Lohmer Full Gospel Church in Shell Knob, under direction of Fohn Funeral Home in Shell Knob. Doug Williams, Pastor David Donaldson and Dennis Dinneen conducted the services. Burial was in Antioch Cemetery, Cassville, Missouri.
