Miracle for Mike
Mike has been working at Northrop Grummon, but in his free time enjoys brewing his own craft beers, playing with their two dogs, and watching his favorite sports teams. Summer is a registered nurse in the NICU at Miller Children's Hospital. Together they enjoy having BBQs at their house for their friends and family, checking out local breweries, and traveling around the world.
Mike was recently diagnosed with two cancerous brain masses and is ready to have the fight of his life. With the support of all their friends and family by their side, we are asking for any amount of help.
An evening vigil will be held on Thursday January 19, 2017 at 6:00 pm at St. Cyprian Catholic Church. We will have an open casket viewing from 6:00-6:30 pm, immediately followed by the vigil service. There will be an opportunity for family and close friends to share memories of Michael. If you would like to speak, please arrange with Summer or Lorrie prior to the vigil.
The funeral service will be held on Friday January 20, 2017 at 11:00 am at St. Cyprian Catholic Church. Interment will immediately follow at All Souls Catholic Cemetery. A reception to celebrate Michael will be held at The Loft on Pine following the interment.
