His role as gido was one he did not take lightly which showed how excited he was every moment he shared with his grand boys. It took courage and confidence to be such an expressive, honest man such as Mike. His firm handshakes and comforting hugs made him a love-able man to be around. His laughter will be unforgettable and the memories irreplaceable. His love of farming will live on at his home quarter in the Wishart area. Please join us on June 16, 2019 from 11-2 at the Wishart hall to celebrate the life of Mike.
