Michael Matthew Bolan was born June 23, 1942 in Omaha, Nebraska to Mae Catherine Radford and Duke Bolan.

He attended elementary and secondary school in Omaha, Nebraska, graduating from South High.

During the Viet Nam War, he served in the Navy from 1958 to 1962.

After moving to Glenwood, Iowa Mike became superintendent of a Waste Water Treatment Plant for the City of Omaha. Following his retirement from that position, he and Gerry moved to Park Rapids, Minnesota where he owned and operated a restaurant and lounge. After approximately ten years Mike and Gerry returned to Glenwood and continued to enjoy camping, fishing, hunting, sporting events, and especially Husker football!

On June 10, 2010, after a rather long and courageous battle with cancer, Mike entered into eternal rest at the Hospice House in Glenwood, having attained the age of 67 years, 11 months, and 17 days.

    In today’s society in which one’s character is often measured by that which is purchased; Mike stood as a testimony of a by-gone era in which one’s character was measured by that which they earned; and more importantly, that which they kept. I will be forever grateful for the time I spent with all of you as I was growing up, it means more to me than you will ever know. Courage, Honor and Strength; words I will forever associate with our beloved S.O.B. (South Omaha Boy). Love, Dona Raye
