Mike was a great man, a friendly man, and a guy who got things done. Mike was the reason that the large and classic 'Slates' home on SR 59 was successfully moved down to Brady Lake on Lakeview Drive. It was a wonderful day, and it would not have happened without the efforts of Mike Pertick.
God bless you and your family Mike.
