Mikel wouldn't want much said here. He had the soul of a poet and was talented in every form of the arts he delved into. He was a natural performer and it made him happy to entertain others. Mikel is survived by his best friend and fur baby Butters. Mikel had been separated from his partner for almost 3 years but never stopped loving him and believing they were soul mates. As it so often seems, the ones that entertain and live a life bringing joy to others are the ones who have the heaviest pains in life. Mikel made everyone around him laugh with his quick wit, no holds barred perception of the world around him and with a smile that no one could resist. But underneath he always commented that he was alone and hated himself for destroying his greatest happiness. Despite the depth of his pain he had a strength that would leave anyone asking how do you do it? His answer was always the same. He said "If I stop believing and hoping, then life doesn't make sense. If I have to feel this pain forever then what was it all for". Mikel passed away on 6/6/20 in his sleep. He didn't get to see if he would get his love back in this life. I believe god didn't want him to be alone anymore. I love you Mikel. No service is being held per Mikels wishes. He willed that he be cremated as he was never a believer in the morbidity of funerals. Some close friends and a few family members are having a private send off but your love for Mikel and your thoughts of him would be all he would want.
