I'm so sorry and shocked to hear about this loss. I only worked for Mike a short time, but he was definitely the kind of boss that made you want to be better. He kept everyone on their toes, and it was fun trying to get him to laugh. He was hardworking and funny, and I liked him a lot.
A couple of years ago, after I had stopped working there, I came in with my brother who was on his mid-tour leave from Afghanistan, and Mike gave us a discount to thank him for his service. He was such an upstanding guy. He is missed.
