Not sure what to say?

Mike was a spring gear of the Albion Nation. He kept a lot of stoves burning and a lot of trucks running. Damn good horseshoe player too. And what a contagious smile and laugh.......adios bro

When living in Mendocino, Mike was out on my property to limb some big trees...I have never seen anyone climb a tree like him! He was so great at his job and I enjoyed our conversations so much. An easy going guy and such a gentleman. super sense of humor as well! I am so sorry to hear of his passing. My heart goes out to his family. Rest in Peace Mike...glad to know you!

May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
