  • Mary (Knowlton) Steinke It is so sad to hear about Mike's passing. Mike and Bob were our next door neighbors on Locust Lane all through junior high and high school and we become very close friends with both of them and also Buster and Dot. What a fantastic family!
    I was lucky enough to run into Mike and Terri not too long ago and had an opportunity for a short visit with both of them. They both looked and sounded great and seemed so happy. One great memory I have is when Mike and I went to the Chippewa fair together one summer. Mike tried so hard to win me a stuffed animal at one of those rip off booths and we both came back home without an animal and completely broke. The entire Knowlton family sends our deepest sympathies for your loss. Mike was such a super caring guy and I know he will be greatly missed.

  • Julie Schwennsen My deepest sympathy to all of you. I just happened to come across Mike's obituary today. I worked with Mike at Dove. I just loved working with him. I was working as a case manager during that time he was there and he was always so kind and always took the time to talk with me. He was truly a kind spirit and always made me smile. I still work at Dove, and when I reflect back at the 22 years I have worked here, Mike is one of those people who stand out as one who have a special place in my heart. I am truly sorry to hear about him. My prayers and thoughts are with you at this time. Julie
