Mike was such a great guy!!!! My dad is a retired Milwaukee police officer. One of my favorite memories of Mike is when he visited our family while we were camping. I was a child then and I asked my dad for money, so that I could go play video games at an arcade that was in the campground. My dad gave me a dollar. Mike said to him, “What the hell is she going to do with that?” and Mike then proceeded to give me a twenty!!! I thought he was the absolute best!!!!! Rest in love, Officer Mike Neihoff!!! Thank you for your service. Thank you for your friendship. You will never be forgotten.
