Mike was preceded in death by his mother and brother, Jimmy Harrison.

Visitation will be held Thursday, April 5th from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Weigel Funeral Home in Swanton.  Visitation will continue Friday, April 6th from 10 – 11 a.m. at Faith Evangelical Lutheran Church in Swanton, where funeral services will begin at 11:00 a.m., with Rev. Edward Strietelmeier officiating.  Interment will follow at Swanton Cemetery.
