Tatum Michael "Mike" Sheffield
A wondeful man, a great mentor of 3D geophysics and life. Thanks to you Mike for sharing the world of visualisation to inspire me onwards. Heaven's gain, our loss.
I am at a loss for adequate words. Mike was a good friend, an inspiration at work, a mentor who unselfishly helped anyone who came to him and an outstanding leader in our office. He helped me to understand seismic attributes, collaborated with me on numerous occasions and shared his time and ideas for improving how we work, learn, and live. His easy laugh and ready smile were two constants at our office that I will miss greatly. I am so sorry for your loss. I hope you can find some comfort in knowing that he was and will always be respected for who he was and how he impacted those around him in a positive way.
Mike made a huge difference on all his teams and projects, but what I absolutely favored most about him was his kind, gentle soul and smile.
Even though he was only a year older than me he was an amazing mentor on the volume interpretation geophysical specialty . Just a really great guy and generous to a T with his time and knowledge, at work and in the rest of the world.
I was privileged to be a part of Mike's Knowledge Management Team. His leadership will be missed by the whole team. My deepest sympathies to your family.
