Faith and family were everything to Mike. His favorite moments in life were those spent with his wife, his children, and his grandchildren. They were his pride and joy.
Mike was a hard worker who could do anything he set his mind to. He paved his own way in life, and created opportunities when there were none. He founded Eagle Business Forms, which he owned and operated for many years.
Grateful and proud to have shared in Mike’s life are his wife of 48 years, Peggy; his children: Becky (Ryan) Schaefer, Sarah (Rob) Healey, and Daniel Michael (Brittney) Schulte; and his grandchildren: Grant, Claire, Max Schaefer, and Faryn Schulte.
Mike will be embraced by God with the words, “Well done, my good and faithful servant. Well done.”
