A service will be held at Bereka Church (Wellspring Building) 2511 Sentry Drive on Saturday May 4th at 3 p.m. with a potluck celebration to immediately follow. The service will be led by Pastor Victor Abalos along with a tribute from his fellow Moose Lodge brothers. His ashes will be scattered at his favorite Alaskan locations.

Mike was born in Waukegan, IL on January 31, 1955. He came to Kodiak, AK in 1974 and fell in love with its beauty and wildlife. He graduated from refrigeration vocational school in Portland, OR. In 1979 he met his wife, Grace, at his brother Tom's wedding in Seattle, WA. Mike and Grace were married in 1982. He was a long time member of the local 1534 Moose Lodge. Mike owned Alaska Refrigeration and enjoyed working, traveling and meeting people from all corners of Alaska even until his last few days.
