Michael R. “Mikey” Anderes, age 41, of Olathe, Kansas passed away July 11, 2019 at his home from causes yet to be determined.

Mike is survived by his mother and dad Nita and Ron Anderes of Hope, Kansas, his father and step mother Michael and Janene Hamilton of Wichita, Kansas, his girlfriend Lynda Huffman of the home, 5 brothers and sisters and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews.

A memorial service will be held at 11:00 a.m. Wednesday, July 17, 2019 at the Martin-Becker-Carlson Funeral Home in Abilene with Pastor Stan Norman officiating. Mike’s family will receive friends from 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM Tuesday evening at the funeral home. Memorial contributions may be made to the Wounded Warrior Project and may be sent in care of the Martin-Becker-Carlson Funeral Home, 414 NW 3rd Street, Abilene, Kansas 67410.

Mike loved to live life to the fullest. He filled his life with his many friends, his passions for cooking and his love of animals. Mike never knew a stranger – he was one of the most outgoing, generous people you would ever come across. Going hand-in-hand with his love of people was his passion for cooking and hosting. He enjoyed spending time creating amazing one-of-a-kind dishes and inviting over friends, family, and neighbors for a wonderful evening filled with food and fun. Once Mike was introduced to the BBQ competition circuit, he started a BBQ competition team, and so began a love smoking meat and Bar-Be-Quing, always aiming high for a grand prize at competitions. While never quite attaining the Grand Champion title, he did place top 10 several times, turning his “BBQ” into “Award Winning BBQ”, something he was so proud of.

Mike was known as the “Animal Whisperer” in the neighborhood and could train cats and dogs alike, to obey commands. His love of animals is evident, as he left behind 6 “fur kids” whom he loved and devoted to spending time with them as much as he could. He had a side kick in his dog Daisy Mae and was often seen with her riding around town with him in his truck visiting various locations.

The world lost a heart of gold that would do anything for anybody out of the true kindness of his heart. Mike was loved and will be missed by so many

I am saddened to hear of Mike's passing. My mother and Mike were married several years ago and I have many fond memories with him. He taught me how to drive, and loved me like I was his own child. I'd like to extend my condolences to the entire family.

I'm so sorry to hear of Mike's passing. In my mind and heart he's still the smiling, happy, ornery kid I went to school with at Chapman. He was such a competitor on the mat, but always a good sport. A sweet soul all around who was fiercely loyal to his friends. He always stood up for what was right. Our world was better with him in it, and we all mourn with you.

Mike quickly became more than a neighbor to our family. He constantly made us laugh by saying or doing something silly. Our daughters always had fun when Mike was around and my husband, Seph will miss being his "hitchhiker". May each of you find peace and comfort with the memories he so vibrantly created.

I worked with Mike for several years and there was never a dull moment with him around. If you didn't come to work with a smile on your face he was quick to ask what was wrong and make sure you walked away smiling. He was always willing to help anyone in need. Prayers to Lynda and the whole Anderes family. May God wrap you in his arm and keep you safe in this time of sorrow.

Love, Marlea
