Mike was born on November 2, 1968, to Michael R. and Rosie (Schlink) Kane in St. Paul. Mike started school in Maplewood then moved with his mother and siblings to Brandon in 1978. There he met the love of his life, Rose and graduated from Brandon High School. He was united in marriage to Rose Koep on August 27, 1988, at Our Lady of Seven Dolors in Millerville. Following their marriage, Mike worked as a manager for Festival Foods and later Pete’s County Market in addition to starting his transportation business, “Limo & Bus Lines”. He retired from his management position in 2018, and continued to run his transportation business along with his wife. Mike enjoyed hunting, fishing, and golf. He was known for his great sense of humor. He loved spending time with friends, but family was most important to him. Mike was a good provider, peace maker, and his grandchildren were the light of his life. He will be deeply missed.

He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Edward and Lucille Schlink; paternal grandpa, James Kane; mother, Rosie Kane; and father, Michael R. Kane.

Mike is survived by his wife, Rose; daughter Jackilyn (Steve) Kane of Anoka; son, Michael “Bubba” (Leah) Kane of Tioga, North Dakota; grandsons, Quintin and Quayvon; granddaughters, Journey and Josephine; paternal grandmother, Eileen Kane; siblings, Cheryl Kane, Colleen (Doug) Maddux, Shawn Kane; and bonus family, mom, Lynn Kane; siblings, Joe (Donna) Plumbo, and Angie (Ben) Plumbo; many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.

I am so saddened by Mike passing. One of the sweetest people in the world, proud to say he is a cousin. Mike had the greatest smile and calming nature. He will be missed. God bless to his immediate family may God help you to find peace in this extremely difficult time.

I am so sorry to hear of Mike's passing. I always enjoyed talking with him at Pete's. He was always a friendly face in the store and so polite and helpful with customers.

Rose, Cheryl, Colleen and Shawn, I'm so sorry for the loss of Mike. They were our neighbors in Maplewood and he was always such a nice person.
Mike was also a great friend of my brothers Steve and Will Meissner. After they moved to Brandon, he and my brothers remained great friends. In fact, they moved to Brandon to be near him. He was such a comfort and support to Will when Steve passed away. I'm glad I knew him. Rose, I'm sorry I won't be able to be there for the services but you and your family are definitely in my prayers.
