Mike was a veteran having served in the Air Force from 1966 through 1970. He loved talking to and being around people (which served him well in his job as a salesman for both Sam’s Club and insurance). He loved the St. Louis Cardinals, horse racing and gardening. One of his favorite pastimes was playing cards. He loved to get together with friends and family and play a rousing game of cards (which could last far into the night).

A funeral service will be held at 11 am following the visitation (also at Hurley Funeral Home) with Rev. Jim Poll officiating.
