Mike was a kind and compassionate man who always enjoyed people. He brought all of us so much joy and laughter and earned all of our love and respect. Anyone who truly knew him, honestly loved him.

Mike enjoyed cars and loved his family. He was a wonderful papaw to his grandchildren and had an extra special place in his heart for his great granddaughter, his little princess, Maddie Jean Shumaker.

We loved him so much. We are thankful to know he is in a better place but he will be terribly missed.
