Only learned yesterday at Sunday mass of Mikes passing. Mary and I are both extremely saddened by the news. Mike continues to be in our prayers as well as all of his beloved family. Words cannot express our deepest sympathy, Jim and Mary Ratliff
My son and Ryan played hockey together many years, I always enjoyed being around Mike at the rink, on road trips and especially in the scorers box with temps in the teens. His comments were truly remarks I'll never forget. A great family to have known. Mike and I shared a sense of humor to which I will laugh about for the rest of my life. I miss a guy like him to associate with....may he be a pleasure to all in heaven. Dave Barnes
I was so sorry to hear of Mike's passing and would like to extend my sympathy to the Wadsworth family. Mike fought a long, courageous battle with his illness, but still we we were not ready to say goodbye. Let's hope all the Red Line Family will always keep in touch.
On behalf of the entire Roncalli family, I want the Wadsworth family to know that we are praying for you. We are also so very grateful for the energy, spirit, enthusiasm, and support of our students and staff over the years.
Mike's generous spirit and love made us a better place for young people to thrive and flourish. May he rest in the peace of his loving God and Father.
My Family and I are greatly saddened by the loss of Mike and would like to extend our sympathy to the entire Wadsworth family. The first thoughts that come to mind are soooo many fond memories of growing up and spending the summers with my cousins, the Bass Lake vacation our family went on together, and mostly how much I looked up to mike when I was a young boy. I can remember how he always had some sort of business going even as a kid, and our shared interest in Architecture. In fact Mike gave me my first drafting tools as I prepared to enter Ball State school of architecture. While all those visions rush through my mind it is my wedding that overpowers the other memories. Mike was just in a near fatal car accident and I had asked him to stand with me in my wedding. After the accident ofcourse my first concern was for Mike and not that I would be stressed out trying to find someone else for my wedding party. In true Mike Wadsworth form he anticipated my stress and called me to assure me he would keep his comittment. Are you kidding me I thought???? "don't worry about it Brian I will be there for you" were his words. His son Ryan carried our rings down the Isle like any 4 year old boy might, fast and with a kids gate that brought laughter and smiles to those in attendance. His daughter Jenny was the perfectionist at strolling down the isle with a timed pace and spread the rose pedals with an even toss side to side. I can still invision Jan working with Ryan and Jenny, as to insure a perfect performance and that they did. as far as Mike just being in a near fatal accident all the attendees could tell was that he was just on crutches. I could tell that he was certainly in pain but said nothing in that, when Mike put his mind to something wheather it was business or being in a wedding: IT WAS A DONE DEAL! he would make it happen. Rest in peace my friend, cousin, and my example of how to overcome life circumstances. This time the call home was GODS need not want. You will be greatly missed by all
