My brother Danny Yurik was a good friend of Mike's. They cut down trees together. Danny talked about Mike and said what a great guy he was. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family at this time of loss. Doreen Berger (formerly Yurik)

Very sorry for your loss, you and your family will be in my prayers during this difficult time. Although I only met Michael one time he was so very kind I can only image the lives that he touched. May God bless you all with love and comfort. Love, Liz

Uncle Mike, Hawk, Ike.. A man of many traits with the loudest voice in the room. Your presence was one in a million. I will always remember you by the summers I spent up there. Favorite activity? Crushing cans in the basement with the can press! You are here with us still and always will be. Rest In Peace. We love you!
