    Donna, I have known Mike since he took my computer class at LLCC. We became great friends over the years. We would meet for lunch at the American Legion in downtown Springfield. I took care of his PC's over the years. He will be greatly missed. If it would be appropriate, could you let me know when his interment will be, I would like to attend. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Gary

    Tom, Sorry to hear about Mike's passing. Not long ago, I was in Springfield and thinking about the St. Agnes class, hanging out with Mike Matsko and playing ball at Hay Edwards.

    Very sorry to learn of Mike's passing. I had a chance to visit and reminisce with Mike and Tom at our 50 year High School reunion. Mike was a tough football player in high school and an even tougher one at Illinois College. The first day of practice our freshman year at IC Mike went one on one with a veteran senior line backer and the their pads cracked so loud that the entire team stopped to watch them go at it for 15 minutes. Herter never gave an inch and his intensity made everyone aware that he was first team all the way. Condolences to his family.
