LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)—Friends, family, and community members gathered at Lafayette City Hall on Saturday for a dedication to the late Mike Koning.
You may remember Koning for his poise and service eradicating graffiti around the community.
In March of 2017 Koning passed due to complications from a recent minor surgery.
His 10 years of community service were honored.
Family members said he will always be remembered for the man who loved helping others and giving back.
"The city had a need and he had the energy and the desire," said daughter to Koning Kristen McCain. "So for almost ten years, he volunteered in Lafayette and West Lafayette to remove graffiti and really keep our community a safer better place to live."
Mike had a very successful career working at many places from the Journal & Courier to Eli Lilly. After he retired he wanted to stay active in a way that was impactful for his community.
