    My deepest sympathies. I worked with Mike in the early 80’s when he was in high school, at Hardee’s restaurant in Rice Lake. I was a supervisor. I always thought he was the nicest and most respectful young man. Again, my deepest sympathies.

    My sincerest sympathies. I dated Mike in high school. As a senior, he escorted me to my Junior prom. He was always the gentleman – so kind and honorable. He will be so sorely missed. May God heal all our hearts over this great loss.

    I worked with Mike at Sportsman’s Guide. We even shared an office for a short time years ago. Mike was always someone who was willing to help and was very kind and was always good for a laugh. My heart aches for his family. May God’s love heal and ease your loss.

    I am so sorry to hear about Mike. He was my boss at Sportsman’s Guide for a few years and always liked his management and people skills. I lost my husband 10 years and I know it is going to be a tough time for his wife and kids. He was a great guy and will be sadly missed.

    You were a Great Boss at Mason’s! Thank You!!
    My Deepest Sympathy to Your Wife & Family. Hugs & Prayers
