    Mike was a wonderful guy. Him and carol always made us feel at home at their house. I always loved getting together with both of them. We always had the best time at their place or at ours. He was taken too soon from this world, but we will cherish the times we had with him.

    I’m Talking To You – An Ode To Mike

    You have a heart of gold, but your heart was old
    and you left us far too soon
    Big mitted hands, help your fellow man
    You are warmth in every room.

    You never did yell, you were never mean
    You took each day as it came
    You cast no asperisons, you did not judge;
    You never put people to shame.

    Mike can you help me? What do you need?
    A screen room, a fence and a deck
    I’m glad to help, I need a whiskey and measurements
    Now go to the store with these specs.

    You guys wanna come over, it’s been a while
    A nice meal, some cards, what do you think?
    I’ll go ask Carol, we’ll be there for 7
    No effort, great laughs, another drink.

    I don’t know if there’s a god or if there’s a heaven
    If there is, you’re probably looking down
    Saying: so sorry everyone, for all this pain
    but I have to go now and help this other clown.

    I miss you Mike, I love you, you’re a good friend.

    Our sincere sympathy to you Carole in the loss of Michael. He was such a great guy to everyone who was so fortunate to have known him. As cousins living afar we always appreciated and enjoyed the times we did have together and will always cherish the memories. We sincerely enjoyed our visit to your place when we travelled to Winnipeg not that long ago. It’s so shocking and sad that he left us all so soon. Rest in peace big Mike till we meet again one day

    I just can’t wrap my head around this. It’s impossible to believe we won’t see you anymore. Those giant blue eyes, those giant hands, that giant heart. And that contagious laugh. So many hilarious memories with you and Carole: weekends at the lake, Cuba, our various cabin rentals together, playing cards, so on. I will miss you. I will even miss your subtle rearranging of my house pranks. I hope you can rest peacefully knowing you were loved and appreciated by so many people. Love you always Mike and Carole!

      My deepest condolences Carole and family. I can’t imagine how difficult this time is for you all. The shock of losing Mike who was a wonderful son in law, brother, uncle, husband and friend is inconceivable. Mike was truly an amazing guy who gave a lot to others and never asked for anything in return. He will always hold a special place in my heart ❤️ because of the time we spent together. Mike, you will always be loved and never forgotten because you made that much of an impact on so many lives. Lianne Tetlock.

  30. Kevin Jackson

    Sending you much love and strength Carole. To say Mike was special is a gross understatement. Such a unique friend his passion for life totally infectious. Getting us all off our ass’s for Jets games, camping, cards, Haddags, fishing and sledding and all the group together he was the rock and made it all look easy. Such a huge part of what we do and why we do it. Crushed but better off for knowing you.
    Vichnya Pamyat (Memory eternal) Big guy.

    My friend,

    The whole of you will be forever weaved within me.

    I have wept day and night, and I will weep until my heart forgets to do so.

    All my love, Trudy and Lucas

    Bob and I would like to extend our deepest sympathes to you and both families at this time. Carole if you need anything or of you just want to talk, I will be here if you need me

  33. Abe & Toni Berenhaut

    Carole there is nothing more I can say. Mike was your gift from heaven, your beshert (soul mate). Got to keep teaching you new words. It is a tragedy that he was taken too soon. I will think of him every time I go into my rec room. He fixed so many mistakes made by a so called carpentry specialist. Take care of yourself. With love
    Abe & Toni


    We only barely knew Mike but my dog Teddy Bear absolutely loved him, she would run away from home and we knew where to find her. He was good and kind.

  42. Colleen Speidel

    Carole. I am so very sorry to hear about Mike’s sudden passing. I was in total disbelief when Linda told me. Even though I haven’t known you and Mike that long, you both have imprinted on me as great, super kind, and loving people. Mike was such an old soul with ‘teddy bear’ like qualities. His talent to fix, repair and build things was amazing. I’m going to miss his presence when I come back to visit Winnpeg in the summer months. Prayers and strength to you and both families.

    I was so shocked when Bear told me about Mike. We’ve known Mike for a long time, he was like family. We will truly miss him. Rest easy Mike.
    Sincerely Kathy
