He was an avid outdoorsman, a patriot who loved his country, and was well known as “The Yeso Kid.” He had a passion for music and would never pass up a jam session. No matter what life had in store for him, he always had his fiddle and guitar close by. He shared his love of life with everyone he met, and once he knew your name, you were his friend. Mike left this Earth too soon, but his memory and his music will last forever!
Please join us for an informal celebration of Mike’s life, which will be held Sunday, September 10, from 3-6 p.m. at The Elks Lodge, 1720 N. Montana Ave., Roswell, NM 88201.
