Hey Dad, Happy Birthday!! I miss you so much!!
November 13, 2013
Thinking of all you.
November 13, 2013
Hi My Sweet Man,

I wrote this a while ago because I knew today would be a hard day for me.

First let me tell you how much I love you. I loved our life together. I'm sad and lonely and miss you every day but I look back at what we shared in our lives and I am so grateful. I thank God for our beautiful family. I thank God for our wonderful and supportive friends. And I thank God for you in my life. We had such a amazing life together. I remember with a smile and a grateful heart all the good times....times with family, times with friends, times alone with you. I am a blessed women. Sometimes it's hard to remember that because I miss you so much and I cry often. You and I had a wonderful marriage and amazing children followed by amazing grandchildren. We have true friends. I could not have made it through this past year without all of them. Thank you for all you did for me, thank you for being a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and friend. You always were so good at nurturing our friendships. We lifted a glass of wine/beer/cocktail to your memory today. Miss your laugh, smile, and bear hugs.
You KNOW I loved you in life. I love you still and always will.

Until We Hug Again,
June 26, 2013
Dear grandpa, I know that your in a better place now but it's like the whole world has fallen apart without you because you had so many friends and they all just went to misery and I think everyone that loved u has especially grandma Connie even though she is a lot better than she was at first. And I know you already know this but once again I love you with all my heart. Love chase "micheal" Bringard

Mike, Just thinking about you. We sure miss you.
May 19, 2013
my name is Johnny Winton. I just found out about Mike doing a search for his contact information in anticipation of seeing him again when my wife and I came to Salt Lake City next month. I had the great pleasure of meeting Mike about two years ago when we were discussing the sale of his business. I thought he was a terrific human being and a wonderful talent. I was very much looking forward to seeing him again next month.

To his entire family, we offer our most sincere condolences and to Mike, I will see you on the next round.

Connie, I just heard of Mike's passing last night. My heart just aches for all of you. He was such a nice man and I really enjoyed the few times we all got to spend together. I'm sending a big hug to you!
February 14, 2013
To My Sweet Husband,
I hope you realize how much you mean to me and that you will always be the one I love. I wonder if there will ever come a day when I don't cry because I miss you so much!
Happy Valentines Day My Sweet!
Until we hug again!
Love You Always and Forever

Happy birthday my sweet daddy. I miss you so much, but I know you are here with us you made it known today. Fly with the angels and visit us time to time

My Dearest Sweet Mikey,
I miss you so much! I miss your laugh, I miss your hugs and I miss our long walks together. I miss your impish grin. I miss your loving care for me. I am heart broken and I hurt and our family hurts so much, but as our cute niece Christy told me.....To take the sting out of death, you'd have to take the love out of life. So when we hurt, it just shows how much we loved. I hurt so much but I love so much. Mikey you were and are loved so much. Not just by me but by our children, our grandchildren, and by all you family and many friends. I would not trade a single moment of the life and love we shared. We worked through hard times together but we shared so many great times. It is those memories I will keep close to my heart. I am so grateful to have had you in my life as my husband and best friend.You are the love of my life always and forever.
Happy Birthday My Love and Rest In Peace Until We Hug Again,
Your Loving Wife Connie
December 28, 2012
Dearest Connie and Mike, You have been my dearest friends since we all just 16 years old together. Our hearts are heavy with the loss of your companion and the Love of your Life. His Love, admiration and the way he cherished you, was evident, always.
I loved the twinkle in his eyes, his mischievous grin, his warm and sincere hugs, his genuine caring and compassion for others. Our lives will forever be touched by his great zest for adventure. We are so deeply sorry Connie and your family for these difficult times, we wish for you the strength when you most need it, a laugh that comes unexpectedly, a memory that surprises you, tears to share with others that understand, and the comfort and gifts of Love that can never be taken away.
Bruce and I will be celebrating Mikes life on Jan. 2nd with a candle and a good glass of Wine.
Cheers my Dear Friends

Merry Christmas Mike.
December 05, 2012
Mike was a wonderful and kind man, and a real craftsman. It was an honor to know him. The quality of products that came from his business was the finest in the country and he was rightfully proud of that. He will be missed.
November 20, 2012
To Connie and family. I am so sorry to hear about Mike's passing.
I've only know Mike for about 15 years maybe a bit longer.... time goes so fast it's had to keep track sometimes.
I never worked for Mike, but always felt like he was the man in charge of getting the job done right and on time. Whenever I got myself in a tough job I always had to make a call or stop off at the mill for his input. Not once, I was put to the back of the line.

Last time I seen Mike was at the mill and Mike insisted I walked the shop with him to look for a piece of hard Maple or something cool for a guitar body for my son Tony. He knew he had something around that was just right for him, but we never found it. Guess we was to busy talking instead of looking. Lol!!!! Tony and I will build that guitar one day and sure I'll be asking for more help from Mike as always. I know he'll still be there for me/us.

I'll miss you Mike. I'll never forget the good times we had. Rest in piece sir.

To Connie and kids I am heart sick to hear of your loss. Mike was a wonderful man and taught me a lot through the years I worked for you guys. I hope you can find peace through this. With much love and sorrow. Brandon Headrick

Jerry,Gary, Susannah and I have no words. Although we didn't know Mike well, we feel a tremendous loss.
November 20, 2012
Connie and all of yours,
I am so very sorry for your loss of one of the finest men I will ever know. He and I shared times since gradeschool and then later through his business at the mill. I asked him way back if he'd like to golf, and his response was "No thanks". Not too many years later I was very aware that he wanted to be Ben Hogan. He played with
excitement and he loved the game.
I loved him. May God give you comfort.
November 19, 2012
To Connie, family and the entire Bringard Crew. I am so very sorry for your loss. You are all so very special and are all in my thoughts and prayers. Biggest hugs to you all. I just lost my father 3 weeks ago and when I came back to work I had a beautiful bouquet of flowers delivered from you all and cant say Thank you enough. Mike will be missed dearly.
November 19, 2012
To the Bringard family,
I am so terribly sorry for your loss. A great man's life gone to soon. Mike's warm personality will be forever embedded in our hearts. Keeping your family in our thoughts and prayers.

I am Mike's first cousin, Christie (Smith) Wilcox. His mother, Bettie, and my father, Jesse Smith, are brother and sister. I was so shocked to hear of Mike's passing. I hadn't seen him in years and years, but have crazy memories of going over to Grandma Della's with my sister, Cheryl (who passed away in 2006) and playing cowboys and Indians with Jimmie and Mike when we were little. Unfortunately, throughout the years, as life unfolded, we didn't really keep in touch. I just wanted to express my condolences. May God bless and keep you, Connie and all of your kids and grandkids.
November 19, 2012
They say you should never measure your age by the years you live, but by how many friends you have. Well I guess my Dad was 500+ years old. My heart is full with all the support you gave today. An irreplaceable man has left us, but he will live on through all of you and what he taught us about Love.

Mike has had a positive effect on more people than he will ever know, I look to him as though he was a major father figure inmy life giving me a true understanding of a good days work and to offer insite on good decisions in life. My condolances for your loss and prayers for healing.

God Bless

November 19, 2012
Connie and Family,
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Mike was a great man who always made me feel better just by seeing his smiling face. We pray that your family will be comforted at this time and the years to come. Mike, Thanks for your example, leadership, and friendship. Your legacy will live on forever.

My very best withes to the family. I will miss your laugh Mike.
November 19, 2012
As Billy Joel once wrote... Only the good die young. You will truly be missed by more people than you could possibly imagine. The impact you have had on the lives of others goes way beyond the few you dealt with on a daily basis. You were very admired as a business man, a friend and all around great guy. We wish all the best to those you left behind and may your family be comforted in their time of need. Everyone at Forever Furniture is wishing you the best.

Connie and children. Your husband and father came early (1974) in my woodworking career. He planed a great deal of lumber for us when he worked at Huetter. Always did he take interest with the work we were doing, and what we wanted to grow into. Even at that time Mike is the expert. His smile is wide when he told me of the birth of their first born, as we were expecting too.
He and Connie stopped by our Oakley shop on a weekend they spent in Park City. He told me then he had gone off on his own, how grateful he was for the opportunity. Using him for some running trim for our church in Kamas, seeing the quality that came off his first, and very basic Unimat, was to me further affirmation that “good work” will always prevail. I marvel at the scope/quality of work he would contribute.

I will keep you in my prayers, use Mike's attitude to God, and life here, as a model example.

Jason & I are completely heartbroken for our old Bringard Mill family & are sending our love, prayers & deepest condolences your way. We will always remember the great man Mike was & are thankful to have had the chance to know & learn from him. He will be missed!! Our hearts go out to you all.
November 19, 2012
Mikey, I don't know that the world has ever lost a better man. I have such fond memories of you from when I was a child, whether it was you hanging out at our house with my dad or all of us coming to your house. I remember you and my dad laughing until your faces were red and you could barely breathe. Not sure if the beer and wine had anything to do with that, or if it was just because you and my dad were some of the best friends that ever were. I remember visiting your house at Christmas time and admiring how you always had a huge Christmas tree in your living room with the high ceiling. I swear that thing was always about 15 feet tall! I remember playing in your basement with Jaimee and Brittany - we always had so much fun. One of my fondest memories of you was how you and my dad got such a kick out of the ridiculously appropriate names Layla and I chose for our kittens when a cat had babies in our shed: the black one (Blackie), the white one (Whitey), the gray one (Smokey)...and when we told you the polka dotted one was named Dottie, I think you nearly lost it. We all laughed at how stupid that cat was, running around your shop, trying to eat antifreeze...maybe it's because he was a male named Dottie.

I am so glad I was able to enjoy you and Connie's company at my wedding years ago - it was always such a pleasure to see your bright and smiling faces. Having the two of you share that day with me will be a memory I cherish forever. You are missed and loved more than you can imagine. Heaven just got an awesome man. I have no doubt you are up there lighting up the place with your smile, and making everybody laugh.

Connie, Cory, Jaimee and Brittany, I cannot express how sorry I am for your loss. While your hearts are surely breaking now, I hope you can find some comfort in all of your wonderful memories of Mike, and in knowing that God is taking great care of him and you will be reunited one day. When you do, I'm sure he will be as bright a star as he always was.

I was given a poem years ago when I was grieving over a loss. It helped me a great deal and has stuck with me ever since so I wanted to share it with you in hopes that it may help you as well:

Grieve not,
nor speak of me with tears,
but laugh and talk of me
as if I were beside you.
I loved you so...
Twas' heaven here with you.

I wish there were something I could do or say to ease your pain, but I realize in a time like this, there really is not. That being said, I am here for each of you if you need anything. Please just let me know. Hugs, love and prayers to all of you :)
November 19, 2012
Words cannot express the sadness in my heart. You have touched my life in ways that cannot be explained. Your life was full of passion and integrity, thank you for sharing that with me. You are a true friend to all who met you. Rest in Peace my friend

Connie and family-
What a horrible loss to you, and to all of us. Mike was a sweet soul, always a pleasure to deal with, both personally and professionally. My heart goes out to all of you.
November 19, 2012
Connie,Cory,Jaimee,and Brittany. We love Mike and will miss him always. He brought passion for life and Christ into the room with him. He accepted folks as they are and loved them as he loved everyone. We loved it when he would read from his Greek bible in our study group, his responses were always about love. A radiant smile, sparkle in his eyes, bear hug arms and always a I Love You. Jesus was his friend, and he was that kind of friend to all. We were honored by his friendship. We will be here for you all. Love you. Barb and Bob
November 18, 2012
Words cannot express how much I'm going to miss you. Walking into the office every morning will never be the same without you, no matter what u always made sure my night or weekend was good. You were an amazing example and helped mold me into the person I am today. I don't think ill ever sit at my desk again and only wish u would be at the counter tapping Ur fingers waiting for me! You were so much more to me then a boss and I will forever be grateful just to know you.
November 18, 2012
Connie,Cory,Jaimee and Brittany
Words cannot begin to express how sad I have been this last week and how sorry I am about Mike. He was always just Mikey to me and he has been by best friend for so many years. There is not enough time left in my life to form another bond or friendship like I have had with him. We so enjoyed each others company and we never failed to make each other laugh. Mikey was more than just my oldest and dearest friend. He was like a brother. My biggest regret is that we didn't take more time away from our jobs to have lunch together and enjoy each others company. It just breaks my heart to know that I will never be able to talk to him again in this life. In his wildest dream, Mikey would never be able to imagine how much he will be missed. For those of us who loved him, there will be a hole in our lives that will never be able to be filled. Connie, I loved the dinners I had at your house where I could enyoy yours and Mikey's company, and Mike was such a great chef. My heart aches for you and your kids. I just hope that if there is ever anything that I can do to help ease you pain that you will not hesitate to tell me.
Love always, your friend
November 18, 2012
I am deeply saddened to hear about Mike's passing. I always looked at Mike as the king in our industry. His attention to detail and to service was well known. And to me, his smile and his character is what I respected the most. No matter when I go to the Bringard Mill again, I will still see his smiling face. To the Bringard family, friends and staff, may your memories of Mike give you strength. God Bless You Mike. I was honored to know you.
November 18, 2012
I always meant to stop by the office and make sure Mike new how much I respected him. He tought me and so many others not only how to be a great woodworker but a better person. A more honest or fair boss you could not ask for! My heart goes out to the Bringard family and the Bringard Mill freinds.

Thanks for everything Mike
November 18, 2012
May you, Cory, Jaimee and Brittany be surrounded by God's most loving angels to watch over you during this time of great sadness and despair. Be gentle with yourselves and take tender care of your broken hearts.
Sending loving compassion your way.
November 18, 2012
Picking up my order will never be the same. I enjoyed coming in just to talk and seeing Mike's smiling face. Mike was always willing to go the extra mile to make sure my order was top notch, his custom work was fabulous, and his service could not be beat. The woodworking community has lost a great friend. Mike will forever be missed.

Mike, even though I didn't know you well, I enjoyed our raft trip with the LaDue's, you and Connie. Your sense of humor will be missed. Being a small business owner ourselves, I and especially Carl appreciated your hard work ethic. I know you will be missed in many realms. Until we meet again, Corinne Wilmarth

The world has lost a great man, heaven has greeted him with open arms, we celebrate his life and accomplishments.

The world could use more men like Mike Bringard, you will be missed

To the entire Bringard deepest condolences to all of you. Your family is incredibly important to my family and I and we couldn't have been more blessed to know such a caring, loving and amazing individual such as Mike. He is going to be very missed and I keep all of you in my you guys.
November 18, 2012
Mike, My heart was truly broken when my Dad called to tell me of your passing. You and my Dad have been best buddies for so many years I don't know what he is going to do without you. I have so many fond memories as a child of you and my dad doing side jobs in the garage, hanging out at your shop, having dinner at your house and you and my dad brewing your own beer while helping me and my sister glue pieces of scrap moldings together to make little treasures. I always loved listening to you and my Dad joke back and forth until both of you were laughing so hard neither one of you could talk. I was so young, half the time I didn't even understand the context of the jokes...but it didn't matter....the laughter was contageous. Connie, Cory, Jaimee and Brittany... words cannot express how sorry I am----I hope you take comfort in knowing how much Mikey touched all the lives of every one in the Tischner family. We loved him so, he will be deeply missed.
November 17, 2012
To my sweet Daddy. I have only one regret, that we did not have more time. We were the same person and never fought about anything. I was your girl and I always will be. If you promise to come pick me up when it is my time, I promise not to tell everyone that I was your favorite ;-) Rest well Daddy and come visit me from time to time. I will never let Raegan forget her Papa.
November 17, 2012
Mike first and foremost I am going to miss you as a fellow woodworker and most of all as a friend. We laughed hard wether it was at your office or over a greasy lunch some where by the shop. You set the bar high in the industry and it was a bar many have tried to reach but fall short. Mike,
when I come over to pick up my order I will miss not seeing your big smile and most of all I will miss the good laughs.
November 17, 2012
Mike, I will never forget our trips to Mexico. I will miss you and look forward to seeing you once again. To Connie and family, I am so sorry for your loss. Mike was an awesome guy! Please know that prayers and condolences are going out to all of you! May you find comfort in knowing he is watching over you and that you will see him again. Lots of love to you!
November 17, 2012

In the grand scheme of things, we are all like grains of sand on this earth. But unlike sand, we are able to make an impact...make a mark...make a footprint in life.

Some people live their full lives and pass on and no one notices. It may be sad but it's reality.

While others make it a point to get live in the be the center of attention.

And then there are some. There are some who have a tremendous impact and influence on the people around them without saying a single word. They are not looking for attention but their actions demand it. They are loved, respected and feared.

He is Michael D Bringard. Born on January 2, 1953 and suddenly taken from us on November 13, 2012, he was the epitome of a real man. A man who made a positive influence on so many people. To those who knew and loved him, he was a teddy bear. A big, solidly built teddy bear. Always kind and respectful of people and willing to help out whenever he could. To those who worked with and for him...he was highly respected. He earned it through his many years of hard work, tenacity and fairness.

I knew both sides of Mike. He was always so full of life and love but he scared the hell out of me. He was a perfectionist. It had to be done his way and done right. He built his business on this philosophy and expected it from his employees throughout the years and because of this, Bringard Mill & Molding was the best in its industry.

Mike yelled but got things done. He worked hard. And he also played hard. Mike loved the outdoors and traveling and eating. It was always a sheer pleasure to see him eat and enjoy each bite as if it were his last. He didn't take things for granted. He loved his daily glass of wine to wind down. And although Mike left us prematurely in our eyes, his life was full. He lived to love and raised a wonderful family. Cory, his son. Jaimee and Brittany, his daughters. And between the three...5 beautiful grandchildren.

Connie. She was the love of his life. She was his high school sweetheart. She was his adoring wife. She was his best friend. Connie loved Mike like no one else can love another. It is going to be such a long, hard road to travel from this point on and one that may never have an ending. Connie will always be who she is...loving, smiling, giving. But inside, she will miss Mike with all of her heart.

Mike Bringard was loved. He was loved by so many. His family. His employees. His friends. You can't buy this with money. You can only earn it with years of silent and reciprocated respect. This is what Mike did and is going to be sorely missed. But we can all rest-assure that he is in a great place it in Heaven as he lived it on the fullest.

I am honored to be married to Mike's daughter, Jaimee. I wanted to write this to express the gratitude, joy and love that I have experienced since meeting her father almost 15 years ago. I can only hope to become half the man that he was. He set a pretty high standard. all those years that I have know him, there is one thing that glaringly stands out about Michael D Bringard...he was no grain of sand.
November 17, 2012
I can say my life has been blessed by knowing you. You always made me want to challenge myself to do the impossible. I am proud to have learned so much from you and been able to work beside you all these years. Thanks for everything ,your friend Mike Stephenson and family.
November 17, 2012
Cory, Nicci and family, My heart and thoughts are with you. May the sweet memories of your Dad outweigh the heaviness in your hearts.
November 17, 2012
Though our hearts are filled with much sadness on this day, our message is not one of despair, but one of hope, love, and celebration. Anyone who had the good fortune of spending time with Mike can attest to the wit and good humor, which he embodied. He loved to laugh and more importantly he loved to make others laugh…a job he always seemed to accomplish with ease. He was the type of person who lived his life to the fullest, and took advantage of each and every minute. These were central traits that dominated Mike's personality. While we mourn the loss of such a great person, we should not lose sight of these ideals which Mike found so important. He would want us to continue living our lives in the same manner he did. He would want us to laugh again. Rather than mourn his death, he would want us to celebrate his life.
Mike, you are one of the greatest guys we have ever known, your heart, friendship and sense of humor are irreplaceable. You will never be forgotten and will forever be part of our lives. We love you and miss you.
You have been a true inspiration to us and I'm sure many others. Once again from the bottom of our hearts we would like to say thanks to Connie, your family & you for being a part of our lives.
Mike, your memories will be with us forever.
God bless you.
November 17, 2012
Dear Connie and Family,
You have been wonderful neighbors. Our hearts feel sad and void. I will miss Mike waving each morning as we both left for work at the same time. May the Savior's love bring peace to each one of you through this difficult time. Much love, Eddie and Jan
November 17, 2012
Connie, I was so very sorry to receive this sad news, I love you and Mike so much, you are by far some of the sweetest couples I have ever meet, you will forever be in my thoughts.
November 17, 2012
Uncle Mike you are going to be truly missed. I have so many memories of you and Aunt Connie when I was a child. I always felt so comfortable around you because I always felt your love and caring heart. When I was younger I always wanted to have a marriage and family just like you. You inspired me to be my best and to love the people that you cared about.This world is going to be so robbed from someone that could show everyone how to love God and have a heart of gold but I know your children and grandchildren will carry your legend and that makes me feel alot better to have people in this world with your traits. You have taught me so much like being yourself and trusting in God. Thank you for everything you inspired me to do in life and I am so grateful that you were my Uncle and you will be missed so much. Love you so much and I cant wait to see you on the other side to say in person Thank you.

Connie,Cory,Jaimee,Brit and family,
The day Cory married Nicci it brought a wonderful family into our lifes one that we will always cherish. Words cannot even begin to tell you how sorry we are. Mike is a wonderful, loving person and we are all better people for knowing and loving him. He leaves behind a great legacy in his children and grandchildren. We will all keep his memory going and have shot of tequilla at the lake for him.

Love all of you.
