Michael Dean Hollingshead, the son of Wayne and Velma (Faulkner) Hollingshead, was born on January 14, 1962 in Webster City. On August 8, 1986, Mike was united in marriage to Rhonda Wagner in Colorado Springs, Colorado. After their marriage, the couple lived and raised their family in Eagle Grove where Mike worked as a custodian for the Eagle Grove Community School District for many years.
Mike enjoyed fishing, building wood projects, and being outdoors. His favorite summer activity was tending to his garden and canning fresh tomato juice for his famous chili. He was happy to teach his daughters his secret recipe this fall. Most of all, Mike enjoyed time spent with his three children and his beloved dog, Floppy. Mike was a kind, fun-loving man that appreciated the simple pleasures of life.
