I am so terribly sorry for your loss! Mike was a good friend of my son, Ben, and spent a lot of time at our house in Spring Valley while they were in high school. Ben and Mike enlisted in the army at the same time and remained lifelong friends. Mike was a friendly guy and we enjoyed his company. He will be missed.
I started the same year as Mike at Crenlo. I enjoyed working with him and was grateful for his volunteer work on the EAC team. Even though I retired this year, I know Mike will be greatly missed at Crenlo, as he will be by family.
My deepest condolences to the Scrabeck family. He was a wonderful coworker to have and could always make people smile and laugh. A wonderful soul that will surely be missed by all that knew him. May precious memories bring you all comfort and peace during this time.

I am so sorry for your loss. I knew Mike from Crenlo. He was always so kind and fun to be around.
"I am a trooper of the ski! I am my Nation's best! In peace and war I will never fail, Anytime, Anyplace, Anywhere... I am Airborne!"
RIP my fellow friend and soldier.
Mike was a kind and hilarious human being. Spending time around him, it was not unusual to have your side hurting from laughing so hard.
We served together in the military, even putting up with each other as roommates for a few years.
His loss comes as a shock. The world is a darker place without him.
My wife and I offer our deepest sympathy to Jessica and the boys.
So sorry for your loss. Prayers for all. I only met him once or twice but a very nice gentlemen and after loosing his dad way to soon, this is so sad for his family.
Prayers for all.
