Mike was a good man who treated others as he would like to be treated if the roles were reversed.. He often worked alone and he never backed down from anyone.. He had grit and he knew how to back it up..

I had the distinct honor of learning from him and working with him various times throughout the earlier days of my career.. I was honored to have him as a colleague, a mentor and a friend and I’ll remember him fondly all the days of my life.. Godspeed Chief
