Mike enjoyed helping out the Poor Boys Tractor Club, riding in the parades, racing mini-stocks, going to OU football games with Dutch, and attending reunions and vacations with the family. He had a heart of gold and would do anything for anyone. But Mike was definitely a family man, his family always came first, and we will miss him beyond measure.
Pallbearers will be Dutch Ward, Chris Bruns, Sean Darling, Jonny Bernard, James Rhodes, and Jace Rhodes.
