To the Snook family. Lowell worked with Mike at MTD. We loved him. We will miss him. Now Mike and Mary are together again. You are in our prayers.
Anyone who knew Mike had a smile as soon as they heard his name or saw Mike. Mike was such a great person with such a wonderful sense of humor. My fondest memory of Mike was at the Elks one evening when he conducted a gong show and sang “You Picked A Bad Time To Leave Me Lucille”. Mike was a friend to all and will be missed by many. My sympathy to the family.
To the Snook family We are pleased to say we knew Mike and his family and enjoyed each time we talked to them. Our children went to school together in fact “Danny” was our daughter Cindys very 1st boyfriend in 1st & 2nd grade.
You all are in our thoughts at this time. Stay stronge.
