The Chancellor’s Office has received word that Michael Rule, age 61 of Whitewater, died on Thursday, June 11, 2020. Rule worked at UW-Whitewater from 2011-2017 and retired as an academic department associate in the Department of Communication Science and Disorders.
Mike will be laid to rest at Hillside Cemetery in Whitewater, WI in a small family ceremony. A celebration of Mike’s life will take place at a later, safer date. Please see www.olsen-gibson.com for updated memorial information.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that you go paddle a canoe, jump in a lake or find any other way to enjoy nature. If you absolutely must find a way to donate in Mike’s name, the Mountain Mike Memorial Fund will be used to put Aldo Leopold benches in beautiful places, fulfill camp wish lists and send kids to camp.
The campus flag will be lowered to half-staff on Friday, June 26 in his honor.
