Dear Mike, I can still hear your voice and booming laugh even though I'm 500 miles away now. Thanks for taking an old physicist under your wing and explaining the ins and outs of welding for all those years, and for all the great stories.

I first met Mike when I joined JLab in 2013. I found him to be extremely professional and a good laugh. I enjoyed working with him and it is my privilege to have known him. Rest easy mate!

Mike was an excellent CWI and diligent worker. He would always tell it how it is. Mike will leave a big gap in Jefferson Labs quality program. His shoes will be hard to fill.

Mike was a great guy. Full of life and gusto.

Prayers to Angie and family that the Lord will provide comfort during the days ahead. Memories of Mike will eternally endure.

Your wisdom, professionalism, learned advice, easy humor and quick smiles will be something I will miss. You were always supportive and Johnny-on-the-spot when we were in a quandary or for a quick joke.
We are saddened with your departure but gladdened for having you in our lives.
Angie, our prayers and thoughts are with you and your family during this difficult time.

Mike, thank you for the laughter. You were always so easy to talk to and willing to help. There wasn't a day that went by when you didn't say good morning. You certainly made work a fun place to be. It's been a few years, but I still use your amazing eggnog recipe at Christmas time. Thank you for the memories, dear Mike. You will be missed.
