I just found out about this and it's always tragic and surreal to know that someone you knew for so long will never be seen again. Mike was a great guy (who can forget some of those off-color one-liners?!) After I relocated from Iowa City to Colorado in the mid 1980's, we kept in touch regularly as he and his family would visit every year to go skiing.
I gotta say I am kind of tripping out on some of the

Deepest sympathies and condolences to Mike's family.
Mike was a very funny guy and a great golfer! He had one of the most distinctive golf swings I have ever seen. We had a lot of great times together long ago. His passing was a great shock to many of his old friends here in central Iowa. Godspeed and many eagles old friend.

I just received the news now, and was very shocked to find out. I lived with Mike during my first year of school at Iowa. He was a great guy, and always a lot of fun. You could always count on Mike for a trip to the Sports Column every Friday. We lost touch over the years, but I know if I ever ran into him, he would be as friendly to me as he's always been. The world lost a good one.

I wanted to include my condolences to Lori and the Wiedemeier family. Mike and I were friends when I was in school in Iowa City. We lived only a block apart near the post office, and were in the U. of Iowa Ski Club together. I am proud to own some ski club t-shirts with his artwork on the back, and even prouder to have been a part of Mike and Lori's wedding in 2004. I was shocked and saddened to learn of his passing. I'll miss his humor and loyal friendship, and my thoughts are with his family.
