Our hearts and prayers go out to you on the loss of Mike and we send our deepest appreciation for sharing his life with the Moose fraternity. Whether at the Lodge or in the community, Mike was all about looking after the needs of others. Through his laughter, his wisdom and his generous heart, the children at Mooseheart and seniors at Moosehaven were blessed. May you find peace and comfort in the many happy memories of a life well lived.

I’m one of the fortunate individuals that was touched by Mike Staples during our journey through life. Mike was my civilian supervisor as Branch Chief at Fort Ritchie ISEC-CONUS Telephone Systems Branch during my time in the Army. During my approximately 4 or 5 years working with Mike and traveling throughout the country TDY with him I got to know him fairly well. He left an impression on all that met him. I have many good and humorous memories of my travels with Mike and will always remember him as a good decent person.
