I will miss Mike greatly! He was a good friend for 30+ years......His sense of humor, thoughtfulness and kindness will be missed by many. Have a beer and tell some jokes to my Jimmy up there past those pearly gates. RIP my friend,

Nancy and girls, we are so sorry to hear about the passing of Mike (your dad). Denis and I were simply shocked! He was such a wonderful person always with a smile. Nancy remember all the fun times we used to have - savage camping - going to get ice but it took “forever”! Hahaha. Denis and Mike were a bit mad at us... so sorry for your loss. He was a great person.
Hugs to you all
Kim & Denis Rusalen
