One of my oldest friends from the Saginaw Township hood. From Little League to scatterball at Chippewa, to shenanigans in high school, to the 10 minute trip in the LeSabre to Bay City, we shared some great times. We may have lost touch, but I have thought about you often. Solid as a rock. Dry, sly sense of humor. Praying for your family my friend, I am sure they miss you. We all do.
— Al Pscholka

Lisa I'm so sorry. My heart is heavy. I worked with Mike on the School Board, and he was such a dedicated person to the community. Condolences to you and his family.

Shock is the only word I can use to describe the feeling I had when I first heard of Mike's passing. Then shock turned to sorrow. I worked for 40 years with him at B&K Tool. We went through an apprentice program together, and shared a lot of life's funny, and a few of life's not so funny moments. He will be missed. I was out of state when I heard of his passing, and couldn't attend his funeral. My sympathies to his family. Godspeed, my friend.
— Mike Hildebrandt
