To Mikes family you are in our thoughts and prayers. I worked at Good Sam and knew Mike. He was reserved but at the same time friendly and welcoming. He will be missed. Our sympathies go out to your family.

We fondly remember softball games and sharing beers afterwards. We always enjoyed Mike's stories and jokes. Mike was always a calming influence and kind to all. Our thoughts are with Sharon, Mandy and Ben. From Davey-Lynne

I enjoyed working with Mike over many years at Good Sam. His was the task of getting all the details addressed so the patient had what was needed for a successful recovery at home or a rehab facility. He was gentle and gracious with the patients and their families and shared his dry humor with the staff. So sorry to read of your loss.

Sending big love to the Prange family. I will miss him so much! He was a great friend with a wonderful sense of humor and compassion for everyone. From the photo, it looks like he mostly told the truth about his fishing trips also! Love ya, Mickey!
