Please join us in honoring Mike, a man that has always worked hard. He had 30 years of service with the United States Post Office and spent his free time doing side jobs to keep his hands busy.  His passions included collecting coins and creating a parking lot of beater cars at home. He was a man that enjoyed all the simple things in life.  His greatest pleasures were vacations, fishing, relaxing in the pool and enjoying his grandkids, who he always greeted with a pocket full of tootsie rolls.

A visitation will be held on Monday December 21, 2020 from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm at Willow Funeral Home & Cremation Care at 1415 W. Algonquin Rd., (one mile east of Randall Rd.) Algonquin/Lake in the Hills.
