Michael “Mike” P. Bierke, 75, Green Bay resident, passed away peacefully on April 15, 2023, surrounded by his family. Mike enjoyed life. Some of his favorite activities included hunting, fishing, sailing, flying and traveling. He loved working with his hands and was a talented craftsman who built many things throughout the years. Mike built houses, playgrounds and crafted many items for the people he loved. In his later years, he enjoyed building beautiful cedar canoes. He enjoyed time with friends and family and loved to put a smile on someone’s face by helping with a project, or by making them laugh with a corny joke.
