I've just become aware of Michael's last flight by way of the latest quarterly newsletter for retired Marines. I flew with Juice in VMFA-323 both at El Toro and during the Coral Sea cruise `79-`80. He was fun to fly with because he never got rattled (or showed it) and always made his RIO feel like a valued and integral part of the F-4 crew. On top of that, Juice was just a heck of a nice guy. I can't recall ever seeing him angry or in a dispute with another aircrew...an unusual event in a squadron of Type A personalities! My most heartfelt condolences go out to his dad, siblings, children, relatives, and friends for your loss. I put my Marine Corps flag out yesterday and puffed an expensive cigar I was saving to have a private wake for Juice. I hope heaven is as we envision it so he and I can renew our friendship one day.

Mike was my closest friend in this world for 29 years. His passing will leave an enormous void in my life, and I already miss him terribly.

I remember Mike in high school as such a kind and thoughtful person. He was a true everyday hero, especially in his service to our country.

Mike was my roommate at Fresno State in 75. He was always considerate of me and others around him. God Bless his family and friends
