    Uncle Mike,
    You will be missed and my heart is broken…..I will miss your jokes and your words of wisdom. Take care and I see you telling everyone in heaven those great jokes of yours. I will still route for your team Kentucky Wildcats and the St. Louis Cardinals and remember the good times as you were in my life 53 wonderful years. You were very special to me and will be missed.

    Love you Dawn!

    candle 7Mike will be very much missed by all!! I knew Mike in Sikeston when he worked for the radio station. We hung out together and played softball there during summers. I have some fond memories of those times, and I am sure that he passed his wisdom to his children and grandkids. He will be greatly missed. My oldest son was able to know him while he worked at Major Brands, so he learned what I already knew, that Mike would help anyone that needed a hand.

    Mike,
    It has been fun to share our special Grandkids, Reese and Lizzie. There are going to miss you so much. You were a source of fun and joy to them. Your presence at their athletic, musical and acting events will be missed.

    We have a lot of great memories of Mike. Every time we hear an Elvis song, he will be remembered. He had a natural way of making others feel included… whether it was with a joke or a story… or a detour from a “quick trip” to see something neat! He will be missed.

    Matt, Michelle, Reese, and Elizabeth. We are so sorry to hear about the loss of your dad/grandpa. We always truly enjoyed seeing him at games and hearing his cheers and support for Reese and all the Lou Fusz/Wipke boys. It was a pleasure getting to know him. Though we are Jayhawks, we’ll be sure to send some love for his Kentucky Wildcats this year!

    Matt, Michelle, Reese, and Lizzie,
    We are so very sorry for your loss. They say those we hold closet to our hearts never truly leave us but the kindness they shared and the love they brought into our lives on forever. We will miss seeing Reese’s Grandpa Mike at our Fusz soccer games but we know he is present with the Lord and still in our hearts.
