Memories Timeline


  1. My heart is saddened to hear of Mike’s passing. May he Rest In Peace as the Good Lord wraps His Loving Arms around you and gives you comfort.

  2. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to the Hopkins family. I was privileged to work with Mike at the COE office. From my dealings and conversations with him at work, he came across as a very devoted husband, father and grandfather. He loved his family. He will be missed!

  3. I am so very sorry to hear about Uncle Mike’s passing. I will always remember pouting on the tree swing outside Grandma and Grandpa’s house, and he scolded me, calling me ‘Debra Ann!’ He was just a teenager. I always enjoyed going fishing or swimming with him when we were young, during our brief visits between moves. Love to all, and my deepest sympathies.

  4. Mike was such a gentle, sweet man any time I was around him and the family. He was truly loved by his wonderful family, a true testament to his love for them. He will be so missed and fondly remembered and I am happy to have known him. God bless Luanne, the children and grandchilren as well as all his family and friends.

  5. I am so very sorry to hear of Michael's passing! He seemed to be such a wonderful and loving family man and father, and admirable human being! I remember how devoted he was to Michael's baseball endeavors and I remember that first car he bought Meagan in her favorite color. I pray each of you in the family is soothed in your sorrow with the wonderful memories and God's blessings! With love

  6. May God give you the strength and comfort you need during this time of loss.
    You will be in our prayers.
    Brian and Tosha

  9. Luanne, so sorry for your loss. I am praying for you and your family for that peace that passes all understanding!

  10. I am so sorry for your loss. I was so happy I got to meet Michael even though it was at a very sad time but please know it meant the world to me and our family that you would drive all the way to South Dakota to attend a funeral for a man he had never met. You are all in my prayers. God bless all of you.
