    Very sorry for your loss. I have lots of great memories of Mikes humor when he came deer hunting. He will be missed dearly.

  3. Darrell Doepke

    Mike was probably the best "pickup hunter" I've ever met LOL. I can still hear his laugh and his voice calling us "young fellers" or "young whippersnappers" and sometimes worse than that. I'm so glad to have known him.
