Some of their favorite times were spent at Elkhart Lake's Road America, a place they have gone for many years. Mike also enjoyed watching snowmobile racing and spent many great times going to races all over the area. He especially enjoyed all the years watching races at Eagle River, Wis., with lifelong friends. Past motorcycle trips with good friends were also one of his fondest memories.

So sad to hear this news. Have known Mike since elementary school when my family moved into his neighborhood. The picture of him is how I will always remember him...even as a young boy, he always had that cute little grin and gleam in his eye. Thoughts and prayers Dani as you and all grieve Mike's passing.
