    He was born January 2, 1990, in Little Falls the son of Bryan P. and Janice N. (Nielsen) Burk and was a graduate of Dolgeville High School, class of 2008.
    Mike was employed on the family farm (Maple Gate Farm) in Dolgeville.
    He was a member of the Evening Star Lodge #101 AF&AM in Unionville, Conn.
    With family as his foremost priority, Mike proved himself a loving and caring son, brother, uncle and nephew. He was an avid outdoorsman and had a special place in his heart for his canine companions. An active and hard working man, Mike held a First degree black belt in karate.

Burk and wife, Silvana, of Dolgeville; a nephew, Damian S. Burk; two nieces, Delayna N. and Delany A. Burk, both of Dolgeville; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. Two very special friends, Herbert Schilbe, of Dolgeville, and Anthony Edgett, of Johnstown, were the people that he knew the best.  Many thanks go to Mr. Schilbe for befriending Michael as a teenager and serving as a mentor and confidant.
