Mike embraced Texas life which he combined with his love for cooking. Mike often challenged himself to make the very best Texas brisket for all around him to enjoy. Mike had a great love of life and he didn't waste a minute of it. He was always the life of any gathering and had a great story to tell. He had an infectious laugh, a big heart and loved to spend time with friends and family. Mike had a positive outlook on life and will always be remembered for finding the good in everyone. He was the best brother you could ever hope for. He would always laugh at your jokes or have a clever remark if he didn't. Through all of life's ups and downs, the one constant was Mike's love and laughter. Mike was preceded in death by his sister Saundra Diane Kramer. He is survived by his children, Jackie and Shaun Morrow, sister, Cathy (Bob) Billingsley, brother, Jim (Darlene) Morrow, brother-in-law Don Kramer, two grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.

Patton, Peter - Mount Gilead  
Peter A. Patton, age 79, of Mount Gilead, passed away Sunday evening, May 15, 2016, at his home following a long illness. On February, 26, 1937, Peter was born in Columbus, OH, the son of the late "Woody" O. and Rosemary (Arnold) Patton. He graduated from Bexley High School in the Class of 1955 and furthered his education with college level classes in business administration. A proud veteran, he served in the U.S. Army from 1957 – 1961 and then the U.S. Navy until 1963. Peter was a detailed, business oriented man, always looking the part and carrying on intellectual conversations. For many years he worked as a fiber optics consultant with Dublink and then Fishel, from where he retired. He also owned and operated Bay Bounty Farm Markets in Put-in-Bay from 1988 – 1995. He loved farming and gardening, selling his own crops at the market. When he was not busy working, he enjoyed traveling, especially to his favorite destination, Hawaii. Peter loved nature and spending time outdoors. He was an avid big game hunter and fisherman and also belonged to Ducks Unlimited. He enjoyed living in his log cabin at Candlewood Lake where he could go fishing anytime he wished or he could just sit back, relax and watch nature all around him through his binoculars. He also served on the board at Candlewood Lake for many years. He will be remembered as a very respectful man with a big heart, although he did not always know how to show it. He was rather ornery, pulling pranks whenever he could, and at times "full of piss and vinegar."
