Mike was born on March 17, 1947 in San Diego, CA to Jack and Angeline (Just) Stice. He married Ellen Belling on August 19, 1979 in Dilworth, MN. Mike was a professional Rock & Roll musician and led a successful local band for many years, ultimately receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Minnesota Rock and Country Hall of Fame. He also worked construction and was a CNA at St. Benedict Center, where the residents were fond of him and his singing. In addition to music, he loved fishing, boating, grilling, golfing, and enjoyed a good political discussion. Some of the things Elly loved about Mike were that he was a dreamer, a mesmerizing guitarist, a great husband, father, and grandfather.

Survivors include his wife, Ellen; children, Mikey (Rowena), Leah, Jason (Kelly); grandchildren, Adrianna, Cheyenne, Nico and a grandson on the way; sisters, Sheri (Dennis) Bengtson and Cindy Stice.

He was preceded in death by his parents, brother, Jeff and infant sister, Beverly Ann.
