Mike was our neighbor and even though we didn't know him well, he always had a big wave and smile when we saw him. We are impressed and blessed with the beautiful tribute his family has posted. He had professed his Faith In Christ ...that sums it all up.

Our neighborhood is saddened by the loss of Mike. What a blessing to read notes the family has written about his faith in God. At the end of our journey, that is all that matters. As you said; today he is with his Heavenly Father. Sending my love and sympathy to all of the family. I grew up in Monett, Mo.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Mike was very smart, very caring and a great teacher. I began working with him in my late 20's and in a class he was teaching about investment products he left me with the best customer service tool of my life. I use it all the time and teach it to anyone who will listen. He knew I would be asked a question I wouldn't have a quick answer. He suggested to respond with ....'Great question, glad you asked. Let me do a little research and get back to you on that shortly.'. It works. Its sincere. It is well received. No one expects you to know all the answers. They just want to know you heard them, you care, and that you are honest. Mike, Thank you for your knowledge and kindness. Todd and Amy I am praying for your families and know you will miss him dearly.
