He is survived by his mother of Chenoa; two children, Michelle (Ryan) Kearfott of Warrensburg, MO, and Daniel (Caitlin) Schlappi of Normal; three grandsons, Reid, Dylan and Clint Kearfott; two brothers, Mark (Sandy) Schlappi of Chenoa and Scott Schlappi of Peoria; three sisters, Sally (Jim) Hackney and Carla (Ed) McDonald, both of Deer Creek and Jackie (Robert) Morales of Dallas, TX and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his father.

Mike had a variety of jobs over the years including truck driving, beer distributor, and roofing sales. He was dedicated to his work and was known throughout many communities for his sales work.

Mike was a member of the First United Methodist Church of Lexington, served on the church board, and was very involved with the Sweet Adeline Chorus along with his wife. He also volunteered at the Towanda American Legion and served on the Towanda Community Board.

Mike was an avid Cubs fan. He had a wonderful sense of humor and was always good for a laugh. He enjoyed reading the paper and sitting with his dog Louie. He seemed to never meet a stranger, but if he did, they would not be strangers for long. He will be dearly missed by his family and many friends.
