Who is Mike Faulkner?

“Mishawaka is a very special town, and I would say there are a lot of people that are like that as well,” said Steve Sandefer, Mishawaka High School’s Head Wrestling Coach. “Mike’s just been a great supporter, he’s loved the town, he’s proud of his roots, and we’ve been incredibly happy to have a guy like him, a family like his that supports everything we do here.” Just a fantastic mentor to have. He was concerned about everyone.”

He was the state runner-up in the heavyweight class as a senior as a 1987 graduate and great wrestler from Mishawaka High School. He went on to wrestle in college on a scholarship.

He attended Ferris State University and Grand Rapids Junior College (Grand Rapids Community College).

His record in college wrestling is 107 wins and 39 losses.

Austin and Alex are his sons from his marriage to Monique in 1995.

“He was Mishawaka through and through,” School City Mishawaka Superintendent Dr. Theodore Stevens stated. “I don’t think Mike would have chosen to live his life anywhere other than Mishawaka.”

Faulkner was instrumental in restoring the clock tower that rises tall at Mishawaka High School, and he could hear his accomplishment every time the bell rang or tolled.


Mike Faulkner Career

He was the Parks superintendent for 14 years, but he was also a wrestling coach and referee, and he’d work the chains at high school football games.

“He always wanted things to be bigger and better, and he accomplished that throughout the facility, and he did that as a coach and as a father, and as a guy who’s the head of operations,” said Dean Huppert, Mishawaka Schools’ Director of Athletics. “He was also someone you could call and say, hey, can I get your take on this?” And he was truthful. Mike Faulkner is a model of honour.”

“You read through some of the social media posts, and the one word that stood out to me was wow, honourable,” Huppert explained. “This is a guy who was a fantastic father, worked in the athletic department, was the operations manager, so everything you see from the basketball court to the football field, to the rocks, shrubs, and windows, he had a hand in it.” He was well-liked by the custodians. The athletic department, the principal, and the superintendent all admired him. In the discussions, he was tenacious because he understood exactly what he wanted and wanted to make Mishawaka proud.”

It is with profound sadness that I learned of the recent passing of my long time dear friend, amazing colleague, and Mishawaka standard bearer Mike Faulkner. On behalf of Jaimi and I, we send our deepest condolences to his wife Monique, kids Austin, Alex, Larry, Angel and his entire family and to all citizens of the Princess City.

Mike was loved by all. He played many roles; husband, father, athlete, coach. He had several titles; Park Superintendent, Director of Operations, park board member, referee. The common denominator in them all was his unending love of Mishawaka. His leadership and service to our home town has made a lasting difference that can be seen everywhere and will not soon be forgotten. There truly could not have been a kinder and more dedicated man who gave it all to impact countless lives. Mike serves as a model for me and to all of us, of his love for his community and steadfast service to others. Mike’s life and inspiration will live on through the many lives that he has deeply touched.

Profoundly sad about passing of my dear friend & colleague, Mike Faulkner. Loved by all, his leadership & service to our hometown made a lasting difference that can be seen everywhere & won’t be forgotten.  Mike’s life & inspiration will live on through the many lives he touched.
