Michael R. Schweikert, 71, of Overland Park, Kansas, passed away on June 3, 2024 after a long battle with Parkinson’s Disease. Michael was preceded by his parents Robert and Gwen Schweikert. He is survived by his wife Sandy, two children Marc and Katy and many family members.

Michael met Sandy during their junior year in high school.  He literally ran in to her as they exited English Class.

Mike was appointed to West Point but he opted for a full ROTC scholarship at Loyola University, where he received a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology. Later in life, Mike received his Masters of Business Administration at Northern Illinois University.
