I’ve always liked Mike, made me laugh. Condolences and prayers to family and friends.
Really sad to hear. Haven’t seen Mike in many years but always considered him a friend. Stand up guy. Condolences to the family.
Knew Mike and his family from our neighborhood Ping Pong as a child. He was funny and never had a shirt on. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time of sorrow
Bobbie and family,
Condolences on the loss of your brother. May he rest in peace.
Grew up just a few houses down from the Abernathy family. Played baseball in our yard all the time. Haven’t seen Mike in decades but sure remember some great times as kids. RIP Mike.
I grew up on 82nd Street in Centerville, IL as a child. I did occasionally see a shirtless Mike with a pair of blue jeans and boots cruising down the street on his 10 speed bike. Good memories of youth. Rest in peace in Heaven.
