His loyal canine companion, Jeb, preceded him in death in 2011. Mike was a retired professor of Anatomy from MCG. He spent many years conducting kidney research and teaching anatomy to medical, allied health, and nursing students. His care for his students and research is evident by his enduring friendships with former professors and students. He was an avid camper, hiker, fisherman, hunter, and explorer of the outdoors. He fashioned many great relationships in his outdoor endeavors. He enjoyed photography, painting, cooking, knife-making, and traveling. His love of the beauty of nature was unsurpassed.
