I enjoyed working with Mike and enjoyed the razzing and commrodery we had every hitch. When you spend half of your lives together in the environment we work in you get to know each other like family. Every time I flew in or out of Anchorage Mike always offered to pick me up and offered his home to stay at. I never wanted to impose on his time off, but always appreciated the offers greatly. Mike was a very good man and I will miss him as a coworker and as a friend. Rest in peace my friend.
