Remembering Mike as a fellow coworker in the Woodyard my eyes fill with sadness and smiles . Sadness because he will be truly missed with his experience, Knowledge and smiles from the adventures Mike had at work .Mike always had Coffee made at the beginning of the shift and mid shift , if Mike was out there was a legit reason, he had a devotion to be at work and on time , never was a day he didn't have a rag hanging from his back pocket . I spent many a year with Mike on the same shift , he was always willing to check and see if you needed help with anything. I dont think they made a piece of equipment that Mike couldn't operate. I often said that I hoped I was in as good a shape as Mike at his age ... You will truly be missed Granddaddy ..... miss you and love you sir . Till we meet again.

My deepest condolences to the Ward family. As a classmate of Tara's, I grew up admiring this family like no other. They shared such a strong love and bond and the kids always had such great respect for their parents. Years later, when I would visit Tara during her battle with MS, Mr. and Mrs. Ward would welcome me in the home like I was still their neighbor. Big hug for you Ms. Ward. <3 Jon Hogencamp

My families thoughts and prayers are with each of you. Praying God comforts you all. My father-in-law coached Mike at Central around 1961 in football and baseball. Several years ago, Coach Burt fondly shared that Mike was one of his all time favorites. That always spoke very loudly yo me given the number of young people he coached over 35 years.
