We are so saddened to hear about Mike's death. My daughter worked with him at Auto Electric and every day she worked she would get him a pals tea and frenchie fry. We will pray for all the family and friends and please remember my daughter too in your prayers as she is having a hard time with the loss. God bless all the family and may God give you comfort.

Sending our heartfelt sympathy to the entire Deaderick family. My Dad, James Kyker, really appreciated all of the help and repairs that Mike did for him on the farm. He felt so relieved when Mike came to help him. I know my brother, Jim, will miss him as someone he could count on. God uses so many people to bless our lives and Mike had a special assignment which he filled. You all are in our thoughts and prayers. (I am under the weather and will not be at the funeral home but you will be on my mind) May God Bless, Sandra Kyker Holt

I know I love you Uncle Mike.And I will miss seeing you at work when I go there to deliver parts and passing you on the road and waving to one another.I will always remember good times that we all had together. Family is very important in this Life .We often take it for granted.We sometimes say and do hurtful things to one another out of anger or pride. Things that can't be unsaid or undone.Then we regret having said or done things. I hope you knew how well thought of you were by so many people and that you were loved. Love Always your niece Jennifer
