If Mike had a hobby it was talking and arguing politics. He served time in Facebook jail and was proud of it. He wanted to say F*CK cancer, and F*CK Trump. Michael died of a rare form of cancer called Spindle Cell Carcinoma. Michael donated his body to the Wright State Medical School. The family would like to take a moment to acknowledge Hospice of Miami County and their awesome medical professionals. Without them and Brandy and Cathy taking special care of him he could not have been at home as was his wish. Thank you also to Taylor and Ian for taking him to his doctor appointments when others were not available. This is a celebration where we can listen to the music he loved, laugh, and reminisce. That’s what Mike wanted. Donations may be made in his name to Hospice of Miami County, 3230 N. County Road 25A, Troy, Ohio 45373. He will be deeply missed by all he touched. Mike was most definitely one of a kind. A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, December 18, 2021 at Frings and Bayliff Funeral Home, 327 W. Main St., Tipp City, Ohio 45371, from 12:00-1:00 PM with the sharing of fond memories and stories of Mike beginning at 1:00 PM. Mike requested that all attendees wear a mask.
