I use to babysit for Michael in his younger years. He was always a great person. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

Darrell & Cindy,
I'm so sorry to read of Mike's passing. I can only imagine the pain and sorrow you are experiencing. May HIS strength surround you and all the family during this time and through the days ahead. May family and friends gathered round give you comfort and support now and in the coming weeks.
With my deepest sympathy, Sue

Mike was one of nine grandkids on his mother's side of the family. Unfortunately, he had no control over the fact that he was the youngest of the nine grandkids. As I sit and think about what life will be like for his family now that he is gone, I can't help but laugh about how much Mike endured as the "baby" of the family. I am afraid he may have caught the blame for several things he wasn't involved

Mike was a friend in law school at Washington University. He was one of those guys with whom you always felt comfortable. I often would seek him out at social events because he was so welcoming and so much fun. My condolences to his family, who I am sure misses him very much. God bless.

To the family of Michael Tackett, I am so stunned and so saddened to hear of the loss of Mike. I worked with Mike at Allstate Insurance Company. He had a great sense of humor and made the work day a bit brighter. I remember him always telling stories about Ethan. And I remember him calling to tell us about the birth of his daugter. He was a very proud father. Please know that thoughts and prayers are with your family at this very sad time.
