April, Kimberly, David, Austin and Hunter, we are so sorry you lost your “with all his heart” loving Husband and Father. You all were his heart. Michael was my favorite uncle because we were closest in age 🙂 I wish we could be there but I have some medical tests for both Saturday and Sunday.
But it is only God’s Grace that will carry and strengthen you from now on.

With all our hearts,
Lamar, Matthew, Brian & Zara

Mike and I met at work. We argued … logistics vs operations but we always came together in the end to get the job done. He was an amazing man, husband and father. Always talking about his family. He will be so missed.♥️
