  • To the West Family. I’m truly saddened to hear of Mikes passing and do know he is in a better place. Mike is a kind soul and a good friend to me for much of my childhood. From ski club, to scouts and everything in between Mike was always willing to try new things and have a good time. Those will be the memories I will cherish most and although we didn’t stay in touch after high school, I always have considered and will always consider him one of my closest friends.

  • Oh Pam and Keith we are so sorry. May the Dear Lord hold you in His arms right now and always.
    Love to you both, Cathy. Kevin, Nora and Joel Metzker

  • Pam and Keith, I just looked up Michael’s 1st grade picture. He was such a sweet boy.
    I am so very sorry. I will pray for you.

  • Pam, Keith, Andrew, and family,

    I am so sorry to hear about Michael. He was always such a gentleman around me at school, church, or wherever. I can picture his smile now. Know that you all are loved. God bless you.

  • I’m so sorry to hear of Mike’s passing. I have a number of memories of Mike from our scouting days.
