“Mike did a lot of stuff for a lot of people. And he was always willing to lend a hand whenever anyone needed someone to help,” said Kevin Broedlow, Mike’s brother-in-law.

Mike was a surrogate father to his sister-in-law Holly.

“Mike is my brother-in-law but I was also raised by my brother-in-law,” said Holly. “I think I was in fourth grade when my parents divorced and they took me in and raised me.”

All that remains of a home explosion in the Village of Rome that left Mike Revolinkski dead.
“It’s where you grew up, it’s where your roots were. It was where you gathered. It was just as much home as my own home,” said Holly. They lost almost every photo, school project and family heirloom. Sharon and Mike just celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in their home.

“There is a lot of loss here. We can all get new clothes and new dishes. But we won’t have new memories with him or time with him,” said Holly. The family set up a GoFundMe to help Sharon with the expenses of starting over.
