Default Mike Trotnic of Parsons Ks

Mike Trotnic,62 was friends of many, including the American Pickers. He was on 169, 4 miles South of South Coffeyville Ok. when he met head on with 50 y o Karen Jo Reagon as described by the Ok. state patrol as "drivers left of center"
. It took over 3 hours to extricate and he was dead at the sceene as described in news accounts.
His jokes and shenanigans will be long rememered by all who knew him, as well as his big red truck with the crane and his collection of fine machines.
He is survived by brother Rick, who is featured on "The Pickers" with the Case car, his estranged wife Rebel, and others.
He will be missed by all that knew him.
