I met Mike at my Dad Keith Klockau's church. I remember him very much as he was described. Full of a booming friendly generous personality. A businessman at first greeting, with his firm handshake and smile. I can't Thank him enough for taking such good care of my Dad. He was my Dad's ride to Immanuel Lutheran Church in Westport every Sunday. My Dad could never say enough of his appreciation for Mike's time & reliability of helping him out. My 91 year old retired & no longer driving Dad, would tell me how sweet Mike was to stop by the store for him. Sometimes bringing him things he needed without him asking. Taking him to church volunteer functions. I know he enjoyed having a guy friend. Mike was just that kind of person you could easily & comfortably hang out with. I know now that Mike is gone my Dad misses their friendship. I'm so sorry we all weren't able to meet for his final farewell. My Dad was very honored to be a part of his service, even if he couldn't be there physically. May Mike be at Peace now, rest easy my friend. Thank You for being a generous family friend to all of the Klockau Family.

Mike was indeed a visionary in the travel industry by marketing via direct mail farm tours and flower & garden tours to Europe, using agricultural extension agents and professors emeritus to help recruit travelers. Adding the concept of actual farm visits as well as in-home visits with either tea being served or an entire meal made these tours exceptional and a more fulfilling experience. This was never an easy task due to unexpected setbacks along the way such as airplane hijackings related to the Palestinian conflict back then, the Persian Gulf war etc. However Mike had a strong team to back him up and he persevered which made his company stronger. I am proud to say that I was one of the team members and have fond memories of Mike growing his company to an international tour operator together with his European partner Heimo Psenner. He was an innovator and a gentlemen. Thank you Mike for giving me the opportunity to be part of your success. Rest In Peace.
