Mike was a fun loving friend, uncle, brother and son.  When you would watch him play with his nieces and nephews, you could tell he was a kid at heart.  He enjoyed woodworking, reading, making tacos with his nieces and nephews, and visiting with friends and family.  Mike was very intelligent and was loaded with many random and useful facts.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Roy Lincoln and Martha Mae (Peacock) Berch.  Surviving Mike are his brothers, Bill, Steve, Bob (Marilyn) and Ted; and his sisters, Dixie (Blake) Updike, Debbie (Mike) Trost, and Deanna Berch; and many nieces and nephews.
