Michael G. Laske #9, passed away on July 24, 2022 at the age of 63.  He was born on July 10, 1959 in Hillsdale, Michigan, the son of Stephen and Marguerite (Nicolai) Laske.  Mike graduated from Reading High School in 1977 and moved to Kalamazoo where he would meet his future wife, Veronica Myers. They were married on May 6, 1989 on a snowy day and lived in Richland, MI before moving to Battle Creek.  Mike adored his two sons, Matthew and Mitchell and coached their home school basketball teams. He was tremendously proud of the men they had become.

Mike was a master electrician. He owned and operated Laske Electrical Service for eleven years.  He enjoyed fishing, golfing, poker, U of M sports and taking his annual fishing trips to Canada with his brothers and friends.  He had a love/hate relationship with the Detroit Lions but watched them every Sunday with hope that this would be the year! He loved to cook and was particularly fond of mixing beer and tomato juice, his drink of choice. Mike had a big heart and was always willing to help others. Mike will be remembered for his laughter, sarcastic nature and his big red water cup.
