Mrs. Mulligan and family, I was so sad to read of Mike's passing in the Rockhurst Alumni newsletter. He was a great friend of my Dad through their work at Western Electric and both of them being Alumni of the College. Mike was a great influence on me over the years and encouraged be to join the Knights. I am still involved here in Texas. We enjoyed many events together and I have posted a picture of our golf foursome with my Dad and cousin Ron. He will be missed and loved by all. Bill Venable III Arlington, Texas
