  1. Mike was a great person in all regards and a very personal long time friend. We fished together, we flew together, and we spent a lot of fun time just talking and visiting. We had a lot of fun harassing and being harassed by his many personal and work related computers. I will sure miss Mike.

    My deepest sympathy goes out to Pam, Alex, Shannon, and all of Mike’s large family. He will be deeply missed by all.
