Sorry to hear about the passing of Mike. I remember him ( and his parents ) from the class of 69' - while growing up in Freeport. I'm sure he will be missed by many, but most of all - in the hearts of the class of 69'. Go with God, and we'll see you on the other side !

I had Texas History with Mike. Jan Garrett and I would visit and eat in class because Mike kept Mr.Cervenka occupied trying to keep Mike awake during class. I didn't really know Mike well until we both went to work for Southwestern Bell in Angleton. There were a group of us that would go dancing and Mike and his first wife were in that group. No one else liked to Jitterbug and Mike loved it, so he and I became Jitterbug partners. We had a great time getting out there to dance. We always had so much fun. Mike kept us laughing all the time. He was just a funny guy and a caring person. I was so sorry to hear that he suffered so much in his last days. RIP Mike. I will never forget the laughter and good memories you gave me.
