Mike was considered the “King of Schollmeyer”. He had the gift of gab. He had a special love for dogs and never met one that he did not love. He was the former owner of A Cut Above Tree and Landscaping and went on to start MTM Trucking, which still operates today.

Mike’s family encourages anyone who has a funny story about Mike to share their story here in the “condolences” section. He will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him. Memorial donations may be made to St. Vincent DePaul Society- Our Lady of Sorrows.
