I first met Mike when we were kids but I knew Deb better since we had classes together. I remember as a kid my dad would go to see their dad and us kids would jump from the loft in the barn to the hay bales below and I was scared, but I did it. I lost touch with Mike some time around high school. We met up again about 4 yrs ago at a high school reunion and did some motorcycle riding together. I was in a bad motorcycle accident and Mike came to one of the benefit rides that were held for my wife and I and Mike did something he didn’t have to do for us, but that was Mike. He was a great man and friend and I will miss him always. Prayers for the family at this sad time. R.I.P. Mike. See you on the other side.
I am shocked and saddened to hear about Mike’s passing. We graduated together from TRHS. We were just friends, albeit from 7th grade on. But I remember Mike as being a quiet and generous man, extremely likeable. The last time I spoke with him he was proudly telling me about his family, not about himself. I am so sorry for the loss of Mike to all who loved him.
I will miss riding with you Mike Richmond. I’m glad I had the opportunity to ride the Dragon in Tennessee. We will ride again together someday.
Prayers for the family sorry for your loss R IP MIKE

I had the pleasure of being one of Mike’s teachers at Park Elementary. I remember when Mike was in my Cub Scout Den in the early days. He was so much fun and would always come up with a better way to do things. Mike and his brothers and sister had so much fun as a family. I remember many sledding parties and hay rides when my family and his family got together with friends. He will be missed by so many who’s live he touched. In the words of Dr. Seuss, “Death ends a life; Not a relationship.”
