Mike and I attended Rockhurst University for four years and drove back and forth from Sterling and Davenport, Iowa. We had some great times, especially when we attended Mass together each year at the Fish. Mike honored us by being in our wedding. We met in Brussels when Mike was instructing pilots from NATO and I was the headmaster at St. John's Middle School. He will always be remembered, especially in our prayers.

Our warm sympathies go to Cheri and to Mike's family, we hope all the good memories will soften your grief during this difficult time.

Bobbie and I will miss Mike greatly, he was one among the few of very good men. As a friend and fellow car guy we never had a dull moment and to his credit some of those moments were not that long ago.

Rest in peace my friend,
Denny and Bobbie Long

I was saddened to hear of Mike's passing. He was a great man and a great boss. One of my favorites! He touched my life and I will never forget him! It is because of him that I returned to school and it changed my life forever. So thankful to have known him. My thoughts are with his family as they say good bye to a great man and wishing them the peace they need at this time.

I will always remember Mike as a friend and boss that always had time to listen and was always there if I needed someone to talk to- we had many laughs and also some tears at National. My prayers and thoughts are with the family.
