I worked with Mike at the Missionary Oblates of May Immaculate for fifteen years and he was one of the most hardest worker and always there for you when you needed a helping hand. Mike had a smile that would that would light up the room and he would always make sure you had everything you needed to feel comfortable at work. Mike was the best cook at work and he loved to barbecue for our picnics. My prayers are with the family and always know that Mike was loved .

Mikey was one of a kind. One of the the most sincere and nicest guys I ever met! He was always there to lend a hand, give a ride, help my boys with their boat, keep Gina and Michelle company at the Chili cook Off /Octoberfest, or help me out with anything he could. One of my favorite moments with him was when I took him to a Cardinal game with AWESOME seats. I made us some drinks in Coke bottles so they would not Question at the gate. We had 12 16oz soda’s with some Jack in them 2 shots a bottle. Anyone who knew Mikey knew he loved to talk! Lol One of my friends was there and she wanted me to come see her. I told Mikey I would be right back. I was gone maybe 15 minutes and when I came back Mikey was talking to the entire section in a totally different row and seat!!! Lol He was having a blast! I thought it was hilarious because I knew he was feeling no pain. I will never forget that Cardinal game. Im going to miss seeing him at the card/shows every month always came up and talked to us with Marty who Is also a good friend we met through Mikey! I only worked with him for almost seven years but felt like Ive known him forever! I hope he got all my Hello’s through everyone I told them to tell him hi for me. Covid changed our lives the past year or so and I would say this change of not me seeing Mikey hurts the most. Im sorry Mikey that we couldnt talk or hang out one more time! You were a Great person very caring and even a better friend. RIP Mikey Heaven definitely gained a great Angel. Im still stunned and have been thinking about you since I heard the news. This definitely hurts! My condolences to the entire Konradt family!

My deepest sympathy to the Konradt family. I worked with Mike (a.k.a. Mikey) for the past 33 years. He was always so helpful and would do anything for anybody. We will miss him dressing as Santa, cooking hot dogs for our annual luncheon and most of all his smile. He will truly be missed at the Missionary Association. Sincerely, Diane Green
