Mike was a sweet man! He will be truly missed. I appreciate his dedicated service to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Prayers to Alice and family and friends.
Miss you more everyday. Love you always I will make you proud.
Mike was a good man who put family first above all else. I hope your memories and faith bring you comfort. Praying for you every day.
It was a pleasure to get to know Mike. His commitment to doing good was one thing I admired most about him. Having him on my plunge team was an honor. I always knew that with the Alice and Mike team, I didn’t need to worry, all was under control. My heart aches for you.
May God grant you always...
a sunbeam to warm you,
a moonbeam to charm you,
a sheltering Angel
so nothing can harm you.
Laughter to cheer you,
faithful friends near you,
and whenever you pray,
Heaven to hear you.
I am so saddened to hear of Mike's passing. I have such fond memories of our adventures together. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
You gave me the most wonderful life I could ever imagine and it will be forever changed without you. Your love and memories will carry me until we are together again. You are with our son Chris and I know y’all are looking over us. I promise you I’ll be ok. It may take me awhile but I’ll get there. Love you forever.
Life is only too short if you haven't lived every day you were given. Michael Olenik was a giant among humans. He lived every single day to the fullest. This man loved his family, friends, community and mankind. Michael was always there with confidence. He sought to give assistance. People turned to him for guidance. He found the love of his life, Alice, and lived life loving her and their children and grandchildren. He lived with honor, respect for all, generosity and care for other people. He will be missed by so many. Rest in piece my friend.
Alice and family,
I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Mike. What a wonderful person. His videos will always be a part of our lives. His kindness and smile will always be remembered. My heart hurts for your loss.
You are in our thoughts and prayers, forever.
Alice, Nick and family I am so very sorry for your loss. I worked with Mike Olenik for about 20 years. Mike was always full of fun, curiosity, creativity and compassion. As contractors, we visited many places and met many different people. Mike was first to reach out and embrace new folks and ideas. Together, he and Alice raised a beautiful family and were usually the center of the joyous and frenetic activities in their neighborhood. There seemed to be so much happening that it was almost scary, but they were there and in control. How incredible is that? But, best of all, Mike was a good and just man. I know I am not alone in saying that He will be missed. We need men and families like this in our lives. Thanks, Mike and Alice, for sharing.
As a co-worker and friend of 29 years, Mike has left his footprints in my life. I will never forget all his kindnesses, wisdom and, of course, the laughs we shared over the years. He was a special person and words cannot describe how sorry I am at his loss. It is with deep sympathy that I offer my sincere condolences to you and your family.
I am indeed saddened to hear of Mike's passing. He was a spiritual leader for the PRC gang that I was privileged to serve on. The world is,indeed, a darker place today.
I pray that they memory of the good times you shared will quickly grow to fill the void you feel today.
Please accept our deepest condolences for your family's loss.
