I remember Mike as a grade school teacher who loved it when kids understood his lessons and asked for more. As the years grew on, his teachings helped in everyday living. We caught up again while at Serenity Seniors Residence. Friendly happy chit chats and hot drinks with smartie snacks. His infectious laugh, eye twinkle and movie night brought happiness to all who were nearby. See you on the other side, my friend, I will bring more smarties...

Roberta and family; Michael was a familiar presence in Orrville when he came to the Seguin area. He was a special teacher, with patience, caring and a sense of professionalism.
