Michael Richard CarterMike (aka Carter), age 53, of Maple Grove, passed away Thursday, July 15, 2021 surrounded by his family and enveloped in love.
A life-long Minnesotan, Mike was born September 25, 1967 to Richard Carter & Rochelle (Shelly) Heichert. At an early age Mike was bit by the fishing bug and turned his hobby into a part-time career which he balanced with his passion for teaching and shaping the minds of elementary age children. Later in life Mike jumped into the IT sales world and never looked back (although anyone who knew Mike knows fishing remained a constant throughout his life). Mike diligently passed down his love for fishing to his amazing son, Ryan, and took extreme pleasure in sharing fishing tips, spots and the Father/Son time it afforded them.
Mike is survived by his wife of 16 years, Amanda, son Ryan, snuggle buddy Jaz (golden retriever), as well as his parents, Richard (Patrice) Carter & Shelly (Herb) Heichert; brothers Steve (Les) & Greg; sister Patty (Brian); nieces Lauren (Drew), Erika, Kayla (Keith); nephew Brandon; and many dear friends.
A Celebration of Life will be held at Evans-Norby Funeral Home (Osseo, MN) on Friday, July 23rd from 1-4pm.
