Will never forget Mike and what his friendship meant to my grandpa. My sincere condolences to his friends and family. 

My condolences to Mike's family. Shortly after my mother's passing, my father met mike and he quickly became a friend of our family. We called him "Uncle Mikey" and spending time with him was never dull. He loved to talk and he laughed often. He was kind to strangers and gave to the poor. He held strong to his beliefs to the end. We will miss him dearly.

Mike was such a sweet man. He was a wonderful friend to my father, to my whole family for that matter. We instantly adopted him and all called him "Uncle Mikey". We enjoyed hearing his stories, he would have us laughing all the way thru dinner. He had such a positive outlook on life and a great sense of humor. I will truely miss him.

It won't be the same now when the old retired guys meet at Louisville McDonald's for coffee and breakfast without Mike. Mike was a great guy and will be missed by all of us.

Mike Reo over the last three years has become the best friend I ever had. Mike and I both have lived very simaler lives, we both lost our wives, worked at the Timken Co. for over 30 years and worked less than 100 feet apart in ajoining buildings. I must have walked past him a couple thousand times, but we just said hi to one another and Mike always had a big smile for everyone. Since my wife passed away Mike was always there with some helping words. We would always see each other at McDonalds  in the mornings along with 3 or 4 others and try to solve all the problems in the world. To his family, Mike was a very special person and I for one will miss him very much.
