My first job during the summer of 1962 while I was attending college was at Marx Toy in Glen Dale. Mike was my boss that summer and I enjoyed working for him. He worked with my father Walter for many years at Marx. I always enjoyed talking to Mike at the Marx Toy Museum in Moundsville when they would have all of the ex Marx employees there. He was a great person and one that kept Marx Toys operating for many years. He is gone but not forgotten as he will always be remembered as a former Marx employee.

Uncle Mike was truly a blessing to his family, friends, community and country. He had a great sense of humor, engaging personality and joyous spirit. The Kline nieces and nephews will always remember how he made sure they always had plenty of Marx toys at Christmas to make it special. He will truly be missed on this earth and we know there is one great Yankoski family reunion in God’s heaven. God speed Uncle Mike. Love, Joan, Dave and Sophie Hawkins Rockville, MD

Uncle Mike will always be remembered as the life of a party, he had a gift for telling a story and was always there to raise a toast on those special family occasions.
