Mike. I just found out today that I lost a good friend..YOU! I knew you were sick, just never expected you to leave us. You were a Maverick, a special friend always there for me so many times I can't count bailing me out of another busted up truck. The Ambulance of mine was your pride and joy project. Never forget you my friend. Your warmth will fill my heart forever. I promise to pass on the practice of helping the helpless. Love Kent Rogne

Mike was a life saver and great friend for me and my two boys(young men now)...I was alone with 2 babies, forced to stay at Applegate Motel, when I woke up the first morning there, I was going to go and get assistance in town and my car wouldn't start...Mike came over and tried to help me for no charge. He ended up not being able to fix it due to the new computer stuff involved, but he found someone to help me and he and I became great friends. I will never forget going out one New Year's Eve in Auburn, ran into Mike and he asked me to dance, at the end he lifted me up into the air, well I'm tall and the ceilings were low. As he lifted me I put my arms up into the air and went right up into the ceiling panels from like my waste up...We all laughed so hard and from that point every time we saw each other I'd say "Wanna Dance" LOL. He always made me feel special, as I would come in once in awhile to get him to do advertising and his worker would say "We aren't buying anything today" and Mike would come out and say "What are you selling me today" I feel I owe part of my ability to continue on as a single Mom, and being successful, due to Mike... his kindness, friendship and laughter... Thank you for the memories, Mike!

Mike truly was someone you would never forget once you met him. I used to wait on him at Giovanni's and he always had a smile and a laugh for whoever he was with. He was one of the good ones. Laura, I'm so sorry for your loss. I know what it's like to lose a father, and just before Christmas, too. Time will help, cherish the memories, and know that he is watching over you still.

You were the best "Boss" Ever! 14 years just doesn't seem long enough time to get to know someone,until you work with them. Mike was old school like i was, when it came to repairing Automobiles. He was even better when it came to people.I learned alot from you "Boss". Thank You for everything......

Mike, we first met when you drove a tow truck for Deyoung's Towing in Canoga Park,Ca.in the 60's. You used to tow for our automotive shop {Jay Ward's}. We knew a lot of the same people growing up in the San Fernando Valley. Lost touch with you until I happened to move to Auburn in the early 90's and bumped into you in Old Town Auburn. What a small world.Hope to bump into you again in the next. I couldn't ask for a better friend. So until that time "Long may you run".
