I am sorry to learn of Mike's passing. He was a former neighbor and we lost touch through the years, but he was always fun to be around and always had a smile on his face. My condolences to Terri and his grand children.

To Many memories to share about Mike. We had a great time through High School. Barb and Roger you are in my prayers and thoughts. I had a very vivid dream about Mike earlier this week and it had to do with working on cars, and the "Eliminators" Car Club. My Thoughts are with you all. JerryStocks

So sorry to hear of Mike's passing. As a first cousin, I have such fun memories of growing up within an hour's drive(Sterling) near the Fortners for most of my childhood. Mike always was a favorite and made me laugh at his antics and crazy faces. He and my brother Jim were quite the circus of entertainment for the rest of us at holidays and family picnics. I know you will miss him, Barb. Love and hugs to all of you...Mary Kay
