It has been a long time since i last saw Mike. But i have fond memories of working with him as a board member of the Timber Rattlers organization. He was a great guy and a wonderful community minded person, he will be missed.

Mike was a wonderful man, a great storyteller and a great family man. I enjoyed every phone call he made to me throughout the many, many years and I will truly, truly miss receiving those phones calls. He was a man that everyone should have taken lessons from on how to treat people and how to enjoy life all at the same time. I truly will miss him and I have all of his family in my thoughts and prayers. It was a sad day when Michael Reese left this earth.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Kay, We here at the Timber Rattlers are all deeply saddened in the passing of Mike. He was the driving force behind Appleton Baseball. He always took the time to meet everyone on our staff, no matter if they were full-time or an intern. Every spring he would come back from FL and want to talk to Rob about something he had seen in FL, always thinking about ways to help improve the team. Every Christmas Eve Mike would bring the boys out to see Jay in the store and get some T-Rat gear. During the season he would stop out and pick up some promo items for the kids up at Pelican Lake. He was always so generous giving away his season tickets and he would end up sitting in the HC seats talking to Patty and Mary Ann. There are just so many wonderful stories to share about Mike over the past 23 seasons. Please let us know if there is anything you would like us to do to celebrate Mike here at the ballpark.

Mike was an inspiration to me and personally helped me succeed while at Pierce. I always thought very highly of Mr. Reese and he will truly be missed. Although I haven't seen him in years, I still have some fond memories like the time I golfed with him and Ray Nitchke. Mike always backed the benefits I worked on; Season to Taste for the Rawhides Boys Ranch and other events. He was a great man. Prayers for you Kay and family.
