Mike was born in Kalamazoo, MI on August 13, 1954. He grew up in Portage, MI on West Lake with his parents and 3 sisters. Mike loved the lake. He moved to Colorado Springs 40 years ago, where he started and ran an HVAC business (Design Systems Heating & Cooling). Mike and Deborah met in Colorado Springs in 1989, they have been married for 26 years. Deborah joined Mike's side in running and growing Design Systems.

Mike is preceded in death by his parents, Ray and Ellen Clapp of Portage, MI. Some of the things Mike and Deborah enjoyed doing together were going to Air Force football games and Formula One car races. Mike was a patient, wonderful man of great kindness and tenderness of heart. To know Mike was to love Mike. He exemplified the expression 'he would gladly give the shirt off his back to someone in need'. He was very patriotic. He loved God and His Word. He loved the believers. He loved his business. He will be greatly missed. Services will be held at Mountain View Mortuary on Thursday, January 26, 2017 at 5:00p.m. with a reception to follow.
