Mike‘s family has been his greatest source of joy and pride. He was a dedicated husband, a loving father, a loyal brother and friend, a treasured son, and a beloved papa bear. He was an avid cyclist, passionate basketball fan, and an enthusiastic card player.
Mike was born in Fargo ND, and moved to St. Louis Park as a child. He graduated from Benilde High School and the University of Minnesota. Mike began his career as a Social Worker for Ramsey County working with developmentally disabled children and adults. Over the last 15 years of his career, he led a team of social workers for Dakota County. Mike was dedicated to providing exceptional service to his clients and staff. He was an active member of the St. Louis Park community for many years as well, coaching youth baseball and basketball. Mike’s commitment to his family, friends, work, and community positively impacted the lives of so many people. His kindness, sense of humor, wisdom, and unconditional acceptance of others will continue to inspire all who knew him.
