Michael Lake Obituary
Michael Timothy Lake, age 52, died unexpectedly at his home on February 18, 2014, in Clovis, NM. Mike was born in Milwaukee, WI on June 24, 1962. He grew up in Parklawn in the 1970s, and graduated from John Marshall High School in 1978. Mike moved to the southwest about 13 years ago, living first in Ruidoso, then Portales, Hobbs, and finally Clovis, NM
Mike was a kind and gentle soul who genuinely cared for other people. During the last several years, Mike worked long hours at the Lighthouse Mission in Clovis, where he took pride and found joy in helping to shelter the homeless, feed the hungry, and mend the broken. In addition to his work at the mission, Mike held a job at McDaniel's Furniture and Flooring. He was also attending classes at the local college. Mike was our hero and we are extremely proud of the kind of person he was and all that he accomplished. The world is a better place because he was in it and will never be the same now that he is gone.
Mike is survived by his mother Penelope (John) Binggely of Tucson, AZ., sisters Jodi Lake of Federal Way, WA., Jill (Tom) Torgerson of Duluth, MN., brother Christopher of New Albany, IN, aunts Sally and Cheryl Colker, Bonnie Lyons, nieces, nephews, cousins, and special friends Ben McDaniel and Richard Gomez. We feel blessed to have had Mike in our lives, even if for only a moment.
Visitation will be from 4-6 p.m. on Friday, February 28, 2014, at the Muffley Funeral Home 1430 N. Thorton St. Clovis, NM. There will not be a funeral in Clovis.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Muffley Funeral Home and High Plains Crematory (575) 762-4435 www.muffleyfuneralhome.com.
