So saddened by the news of Mike's passing. Thoughts of our childhood memories came flooding back. Some good, some crazy but we always had fun. Hoping comfort and peace comes to the family as they heal. Love to you all, Gardis

Charlene, Michael,Mark and Scott. You know I loved him its just that simple. I miss the times I spent with His dad and brother as well. All the Wilsons have been so much fun to be around. I tried to call Mike when I heard he was sick. I tried a few times but he wouldn't answer so I told him what I wanted him to hear on his voicemail. I know he didn't want to talk He helped me out so many times and I wont ever forget that.I love you all too.

Charlene and family,
I'm very sorry to hear of Mike's passing. As an electrician in the same department, I had a great respect for his abilities and work ethic. He was one of the best, could always be depended upon and was fun to be around.
