Mike was particularly close to his cousins Debbie (Bruce), Mathison, Diane (Mike) Hubbard.
Mike had a great love and appreciation for the outdoors that he passed on to his family. They all enjoyed time on the river whether it be on a sandbar grilling , fishing, sitting in a duck blind or ice fishing. But Mike’s greatest passion was hunting, especially with his family and friends. He loved to hunt pheasant, squirrel, duck, turkey or deer. Many memories were made over the years. When Mike wasn’t hunting or fishing, if the sun was shining, you can better believe Mike was laying in the sun nurturing that cocoa brown tan while listening to a Brewer game or Rock and Roll on the radio!
Mike also enjoyed riding our horses and camping with friends and (framily). He loved traveling many places to equestrian camps all over the Midwest and as far as South Dakota. Mike also loved our extended family and all the great times made during our gatherings. Mike will be remembered for his love of family, his animals, his great sense of humor and even better dance moves. Mike had the blessings of walking his daughters down the aisle. He developed wonderful, close relationships with his sons-in-laws, Nick and Chris and was fortunate to know his young grandson, Tate Michael.
Being people of faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, we are deeply grateful Mike is no longer suffering as he is free from his earthly body. We rely on God’s promise that in our faith we will all be together, again, one day in heaven.
