To those who knew and loved him no explanation is necessary, the impact of the lives he touched is everlasting.
To those of you who did not have the pleasure, he was a standout athlete who left a positive impression on those lives that he came in contact with by being an inspiration as a friend and teammate, a soccer coach to younger kids in the Striker organization and a humble winner with a contagious smile. Mike was taken to be with his Lord at the age of 15 on a snowy November night on an icy road in 2005.
Mike was a phenomenal soccer player that spent hour after hour on a little field near his home perfecting his shot. This is the same field that thanks to the City of Ferrysburg is now officially named the Mike Herman Memorial Field.
