RIP Mike. You played all the best games and flew all the best drones. No one was nicer.

This still doesn't feel real. I walk into the house and expect you to be there. I'm extremely grateful for the time we've had together, but so sad that we can't share more. You were like a big brother to so many of us. You were always there as I grew up, I thought everything you did was so cool, and I just wanted to be like you. You always included me, even though I was much younger, and that meant the world to me. My son, Liam, was born, and I saw that same kindness extended towards him. Thanks for fishing with me, letting me come over to play video games when I was just a kid, teaching me to yo yo and hacky sack, watching movies with me, talking computers with me, playing Legos with me. Spending time with me. I love you Mike.

I was saddened to hear that Mike passed away. I worked with Mike at ITT for years, but really got to know him while sharing stories and battle scars at Carrier. He had many talents and was a joy to be around. Just an overall great guy. He will be missed. Condolences to his family and loved ones.
