I am truly saddened by Mike's death, I have lost a longtime, great friend. Mike and I met on our first day of anesthesia residency at OSU and his quick wit, compassion for the patients and staff, warm welcoming demeanor, and sharp mind made it easy to become fast friends. Mike was always my go to guy, for professional and personal help. He was always there and always went out of his way to help me in any way he could. His personal and professional advice were always right on. Unfortunately, I could not return the favor with his golf game! We struggled together thru long days and nights of anesthesia together, then continued to commiserate regularly about the trials and tribulations of oral surgery practice as well as our personal ups and downs for the next 30+ years. We played golf together once for 4 days in 100+ degree weather just to win a few bucks. That was Mike, in it full go. Mike was a great listener, compassionate, and sympathetic. His surgical skills were excellent. In fact, I feel his total dedication to his patients 24/7/365 took its toll on his body, as he would do whatever it took to give his patients the best possible. I already do and will continue to miss this great man. He occupies a special place in my heart and that hole will never completely heal. Godspeed to you Mike. Thank you for being in my life.

Dear Candy and Family,
Mike was a great oral surgery resident at O.S.U. where I had the pleasure of teaching him anesthesia and pharmacology. He was always so careful to do the right thing and not make a mistake. He was a perfectionist.

When Mike was a first year resident,a young boy was admitted to the hospital late in the afternoon with a large arterial aneurysm in his jaw that was scheduled to be tied off the following morning in the operating room. Mike was on-call that night and was so worried that this weakened artery might dissect further and start a massive bleed that he started a large IV in the child's arm, much to the displeasure of the nurses who thought he was being overly cautious and had caused undue pain.

Sure enough, in the middle of the night, his aneurysm exploded. Mike was right there and applied pressure with his strong finger over the artery and the child was rushed to the operating room. The head oral surgeon prepped the child's facial area and mouth including Mike's finger which was still in the mouth, and in the end, the surgery was successful. The fact that the big IV was already in place allowed rapid infusion of fluids to replace the massive blood loss. The patient did well because of Mike's compulsive personality. He kept the child alive until the great skill of the head oral surgeon could complete the operation. Mike really cared about his patients as if they were family. He will be missed.
