Michael William Fredericksen was born November 6, 1959 in Mitchell, SD to Earl and Millie (Gales) Fredericksen. He was a lifelong White Lake resident.
He graduated from White Lake High School in 1978. Then he dedicated the next thirty-five years to the Aurora-Brule Nursing Home and its residents and staff. Mike kept all happy and the building running like a well-oiled machine. He was loved and respected by all.

In his spare time he loved to play one of his many guitars and they both enjoyed camping, riding the Harley, taking care of their cat, Shadow and spending time with friends and family especially on their back deck.
