Uncle Mike, you'll always be known as the most mischievous member of the family! Tales of what you got up to in your childhood are still told around our dinner table and always result in a lot of laugher. It was always so fun when you came to stay and I still can't believe you are gone. Love, Jo.

In this world, billions of grinding wheels of different types are used for hundreds of applications and many forget to know learn why the grade, pattern, profiles are different but simply work. We salute the brain behind the many developments. May his thoughts and idea be carried farther.

Deepest condolences... I am sure he will be missed in both personal and professional circles. Thoughts and prayers to all who new him.

Very sorry to learn about Mike's passing. A met him professionally and came to know him personally. I will remember his professionalism, eagerness to contribute and sense of humor. God bless.

Mike was my brother-in-law, and I have only good memories of him. Like several others who have left messages, a lot of these are of his Morris dancing and accordion playing. Mike went to Oxford University, and since we live just outside the city, we saw quite a bit of him while he was here. On several occasions he Morris danced in our village of Wheatley. He sometimes played badminton with a group of us who lived locally and was a competitive player.

I thought Mike would never leave Oxford University. Having got his degree, he then worked on to get his PhD and following that he did post-doctorate work.

One memory demonstrates Mike's wicked sense of humour. I was driving him in Oxford one evening when he suggested we stop at a Mexican restaurant. He ordered me a burger, but didn't tell me it was the hottest one they sold. He took great delight when I couldn't speak and my eyes started to water!

I hadn't seen Mike since 9/11 happened in 2001. He was in the air flying to Spain when 9/11 happened. Because flights back into the US were temporarily suspended, he diverted to the UK and turned up on our doorstep.

I can't believe Mike is gone. Our family's thoughts are with Martha, Alec and Martha's family.

I had the privilege of working with Mike in grinding for many years. He was a good man and a good friend. He will be missed.
December 19, 2016
Oh, Hitch...you will be dearly missed by all who were privileged to know you. My condolences to Martha and all your family.

Very sorry to hear this news. Our good wishes to Michael's family and friends.

I was very sad to hear about Michael. My deepest sympathies to Martha, Alec, Linda and all family and friends. With love from Michael's cousin Clair (Holme)
