He passed peacefully at his home surrounded by family. Mike was born in Bismark, ND March 26, 1937, the only child of Michael and Frances Hauck. His father passed just two months shy of his birth and his mother and grandparents raised him. Mike married Dorothy Tibor on June 10, 1958., the two had just celebrated 64 years of marriage. God blessed them with five children, Tammy (Jim) Eadus, Joe (Wendy) Hauck, Debbie (Rikk) Flohr, Julie (Ryan) Gutknecht, and Mary (Mark) Fogle. Mike was a graduate of the University of ND.  The family moved to Stanton, ND where he taught Math, and Science, coached, and became superintendent. In 1976 he moved his family to Gillette to work at Cordero Coal Mine until his retirement. Mike was proud of his work there. As the Safety Manager, he and the mine won Sentinals of Safety three consecutive years. He loved his God, his family, and his friends with his whole heart. He was a talented woodworker, athlete, and tinkerer. He absolutely loved creating pieces for his family, the latest being puzzle benches for his great-grandchildren. Mike was grandfather to 19 grandchildren and currently 27 great-grandchildren with 3 more coming this next year! From Mike and Dorothy’s love came many. As a grandfather, he attended any and as many events as he could and did not hesitate to brag about each child, grandchild, and great-grandchild. He was met in Heaven by his wife Dorothy, his infant child, daughter Julie, son-in-law Ryan, his loving mother, father and many loved relatives. We were blessed to call him father, grandpa, friend, and hero. We thank him for teaching us faith in God and love of family go hand in hand. May God Bless and keep you until we meet again. We will love and miss you so very much. Until we meet again. Memorials and condolences may be sent in care of Walker Funeral Home 410 Medical Arts Court, Gillette, WY 82716.
