I still can’t believe that you’re gone, almost seems surreal. You were a great man to work for even tho we didn’t see eye to eye in the end. I’ll cherish the mornings we shared together, working side by side and all you’ve taught me and helped me along the way. Rest In Peace until we meet again.

Mike graduated with both of my parents and remained good friends with them for decades. I hadn't seen Mike much over the past few years, but growing up he was sort of like an uncle to me. I actually saw him more often than some of my real uncles. Always enjoyed the fish boils, race track nights, and fishing trips. Rest easy.

I was with a group of friends Mike took fishing on his boat—we had many laughs and a great time. Mike & I talked in ‘05 when he was excited about composting & producing a dillo dirt product locally like that in Texas. Mike lives in our memories of him. My sincere condolences to his family and friends.

I will always remember Mike’s fishing stories and “can-do” attitude. I admired him for his business sense and the pride he took in his work. Peace to Mike and his family.

Our deepest sympathy to the Poole family, We have known Mike for 30 years, we were neighbors. It was a small but friendly neighborhood. As a group, we would watch him race and sit in the backyard to talk. There were always gatherings .This is so sad and he will be missed by us and our girls
David Phillips left a message on October 13, 2020:
Mike was just like his obituary said, always put you at ease. I did lots of business with Mike and Oshkosh Bearing years ago. He was always helpful and eager to figure out solutions, or to invite you fishing on Michigan. Taught me a thing or two as well. Because of him, I know how gears are made, and how to use a broach. RIP Mike

Thank you Mike for taking a chance on a group of people that came to you with a crazy idea to race lawn mowers out back behind the bar. When I would be preparing the race track and seen you coming I was never sure if I should grab a notebook for things to do or if you just wanted to chat about how the track is doing. You will be missed.

Sharon Poole left a message on October 11, 2020:
My only brother was an inspiring person. He had a relentless mind for things he found interesting in this life. He loved and respected his father, who taught by word and example what being a man was all about. Mike was always one to follow his heart, but his practical and focused mind made him a success at whatever he tried. My brother was a people person, and he was good at finding true and loyal friends who will miss him very much. In a pinch, my brother always had my back, and helped me several times through the years when no one else would or could. I have grateful, happy memories of shared interests, our love of animals and farming being just 2 of many. I ache to not have seen his face one more time, share a few jokes, a beer, and a hug. I know he is with my parents now in peace and joy. I hope and pray to meet him there one day to give and receive the healing that only comes from God. I love you fiercely, my only beloved brother who taught me much.
