Mike has served on the Board since 2017. He is a retired Social Studies teacher for 36 years teaching in the Gilman, Medford and Green Bay School Districts. He is married with 3 Daughters and 4 Grandchildren. He graduated from De Pere High School, UW-La Crosse (BA) and Oregon State (MS).

His desire to serve on the De Pere Greenwood Cemetery Association board is in fact because he has relatives in Greenwood: Great-Grandparents Jacob and Mary Falck, Grandparents-Alfred and Elsa Fleck, and he will also be buried there one day.
His historical connection to De Pere has been a great asset to the Cemetery preservation. He is greatly interested in preservation and research.
