   Mike was born on February 10, 1944, to Robert "Bob" and Josephine "Patsy" Regan in Mankato. He graduated from Loyola High School, Mankato State University, and William Mitchell College of Law. In 1971, he joined his family's law practice in Mankato that was originally started by his grandfather, John E. Regan in 1910. He retired in 1987 from practicing law due to failing health. Mike loved to hunt, trap shoot, and target shoot. He was also a very accomplished, self-taught woodworker. He was a life member of the National Rifle Association and the Key Cities Conservation Club.

   Mike is survived by his very special friend and companion of many years, Judith B.

(Deb) Regan of Lake Washington, MN.

   Mike was preceded in death by his parents, Robert "Bob" Regan on April 17, 1997 and Josephine "Patsy" Regan on October 5, 2013.

   In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred to "For Pets" of Mankato, Mayo Clinic Health Systems - Hospice, Mankato, or a worthy charity of the donor's choosing.
