    I remember many camping and youth group events with Mike. Its a travesty to see such a wonderful man and friend from the past go. It was a privilege to grow up with him and I have fond memories of our time together in small group. My heart and prayers go out to the Manske’s as they raised a rare young man full of life, kindness, and respect.

    With love,

    Manske family,

    We stand eternally at a loss, and the world is a little less bright, a little less joyful, and a little less passionate without Michael in it. He meant so much to so many, and gave more of himself than he kept. With a serving heart to the end, to any problem; a magnificent smile, a warm embrace, and calming words: his answer. Let us never forget his legacy in how we treat eachother. His absence from this world, lends solace to his presence with Christ. Much love.

    i am so sad to hear about Mike’s passing. He was one of my most favorite employees at Dodge Street Hy-Vee when he worked there. He was always so polite and nice to everyone. I will always have fond memories of him.

    He took me in when I had no job and money. He took care of me when I needed it. He was always there for me. Even in the past couple years I did screw him over but he had the most caring heart he stayed there with me and watched me turn into the guy I am today I miss you bud fly high
