When it was decided to open a St. Vincent de Paul conference at Nativity of Our Lord in Broomfield and volunteers were asked to indicate how they would like to be a part of this ministry, Mike wrote "I will be a support to other volunteers." Haha, Mike was my right hand man through the inception, assisting with the manual, training, etc. For a very long time, there were just three of us doing all the visits and sometimes he hung in there for hours. Mike was one of the kindest gentle men I have ever had the honor of working with and knowing. I have retrieved many of his emails about our work so that I can look back on them and smile. He always finished with a line that made me laugh out loud.

There is a big empty space in our hearts and Mike is missed, not only by his SVdP family, but the Nativity parishioners who saw his smiling face at daily Mass. We love you Mike and know you are in peace and smiling down on us!

I worked with "Mr Biety" at Ensslin & Hall and Peak|Biety. Mike was such a lovely man, always a smile on his face and that gentle, kind manner. His wife was a delight too, they made a great pair, so very caring of each other, their children and their work family. I will miss Mike, his compassion and kindness, in the ad world he was always the consummate professional and gentleman, and that's saying a lot.

In 1985, the Honor Network was a new company that needed an
Ad Agency. We turned to Peak Biety in Tampa. We had a new CEO (me) and a very young and inexperienced marketing director. We also had a lot of ideas, most of which were not very good. Mike with his patience, professionalism and sense of humor got us on the right track and kept us there. Along the way we had a great time with lots of laughs. In one meeting I remember that I had the Idea of using the moose from the TV show Northern Exposure in a add. I had all kinds of reasons why it would work. Mike and Glen knew better.
I think the thing that killed it was Mikes concern: " What if the moose died in the middle of our campaign"? We laughed over that one for days. There were many great memories.
Rest In Peace Mike! The Lord got a good man.

It has been said that " On the road of Life, there are drivers and there are Passengers" Mike Biety was the driver who knew how to reach for the talent from all his coworkers and not only give his best but get their best. The result was great advertising. I am grateful for the opportunity to have been a client as well become a team member on the Pepin Heart Hospital launch. Our Cuban restaurant lunches allowed me to experience the philosophy of a great thinker as well as a man who could create success. My prayers are with you Mike.

....I forgot one thing....as is my custom....Mike had a deep, subtle, almost British sense of humor that I truly enjoyed and was enriched by....My favorite....we represented a big car dealership in Tampa, Fl...one day Mike, Joe P. and I were talking, actually heatedly discussing what was the best car made. Sometime in middle Mike looked at me and softly said, "Jim, the best car on the road is a paid-off car that starts in the morning." I still use that line.

Mike, you were a great inspiration for me, great help to me, and one of the kindest people I have ever met. The agency is in debt to you in large part. You are truly missed, truly a saint, and truly part of my heart....your all time friend, Jimi Barr

We had such monumental success working together. Mike,Glenn and the entire team made me a "hero". The Lykes characters scored big time. I have wonderful memories of our time working together. We send our condolences to the family and wishing you much joy in the wonderful memories you all have of Mike.

I was one of the many fortunate people to have gotten to be in some small way acquainted with Mike. He was such a kind and generous soul. He will always be missed and in some small way there will be a void in the world that we all will need to fill with the memory of him and by living his example.

I would like for Mike's children to know that he was so much more more than an extraordinary boss, he was a wise confidante and true friend.
Though the years passed quickly, it never occurred to me that there would be a day that I couldn't pick up the phone and talk or email him. I will miss the annoying way he used to kneel by my desk.. while tapping the top of his head with a pencil as we untangled any obstacles of each work day..perhaps that is why he had knee problems later on. I chuckle when remembering the fidgety way he finger combed through his hair while laughing....as though it was ever messed up.
Your father accepted and offered God's grace each and every day without effort.
The advertising industry has lost one of it's very best.
Mike, you often promised that "whatever life brings, it will always be better than a sharp stick in the eye!"
I know Marianne is loving having you with her again...but your passing will always hurt like a sharp stick in the eye!
Signing off as I have many times in our emails....I MISS U!

Sorry for your loss my prayers are with the Biety family.
