Memories and Condolences

Mitch Wirt, Elkhart, IN

I played softball with "Trapper" for only a handful of years, but he most certainly left quite an impression. He was one of those "give you the shirt off his back" guys. My prayers go out to Mike & his family. RIP Trapper, you'll be missed.

Mike was a good friend and teammate. I played softball with Mike for over 20 years. He was an excellent player. A great left handed pitcher and an always reliable left handed hitter. I have wonderful memories of competing with Mike. He is certainly responsible for much of our success and the championships we won through the years. Always fun to have Mike around. I will miss him. God bless his family.

I worked with Mike and Deb at 20th Century Fiberglass, in the late 70's. I hung around with Mike before him and deb hooked up. Mike, Ray Ragsdale and I had many fun times together. I think about the time that we picked up the back end of a friends car and turned it sideways, in the driveway. Mike was the first of us to become a "family man" and settle down. I'm glad that he had chance to do that and be a blessing to his family.
