I met Mike 7-8 years ago thanks to TechMix. Mike always enlightened our discussions with his extensive experience and comments. We will miss you Mike!

Mike followed me into Hamilton Co. Extension before joining Land O'Lakes and we met up with each other at Animal Science conferences in subsequent years.
Mike was a successful animal science consultant and made many friends for Land O'Lakes.
Mick and my son Randy were members of the Sat. morning Town & Country Kiwanis club in Ames. He and Randy attended several Iowa State big 12 basketball tournaments in Kansas City.

I am saddened to learn of his passing. Karl G.

I had the great opportunity to get to know Mike through TechMix. We shared a lot of basketball and I Cubs games together. Just this past spring Mike took my Daughter and I to one of the last Iowa State home Basketball games.
I will always remember Mike as a caring compassionate person that would do anything to help you out. When he was passionate about something that he relentless in finding the answers. Myself and the entire TechMix team will miss him dearly.

My husband, Don Eggerling, and I were friends of Mike's. For a time we were in the same bridge club with Mike, Dee, the Axlands, and the Roehrs. We shared many a good story and hearty laugh with that bunch. I enjoyed Dee's refreshments served on her Grandma's beautiful dishes.
Mike liked to greet us at Bethesda after worship and talk about the Cyclone game from the day before. We have a Cyclone flag that we hang on our garage

Sorry to hear about Mike's passing. We know the last couple of years have been a struggle for both Mike and his family. We will certainly miss his "How about those Cyclones?"greeting. Many fond memories of Mike from the "10 o"clock coffee group", card club, and church groups. Ardie remembers Mike being one of the last guys to leave Oak Hall when he was dating Dee at ISU. May he rest in peace.

Mike's enthusiasm and energy will be missed. I joined Land O'Lakes in 1984 in the seed group but Mike reached out and initiated a friendship even though he worked in a different area and a different location. It helped that I also was an Iowa State alumnus and we always had things to talk about. In 2004 I had the pleasure of joining the LOL Animal Milk Products group and saw how Mike added value to the company's image and

Mike was a wonderful colleague. I traveled many days and nights with Mike in the eastern half the US for Land O'Lakes Animal Milk Products. He was always very inquisitive to the point of exhaustion. Mike was truly interested in people and their background. Mike's favorite questions when meeting a new customer were; Where you in 4H? Where you in FFA? What college/university did you graduation from? He kept detailed notes on people's backgrounds and family to ensure he would
