Mike was a great man to work with. He was compassionate to the people he served and everyone who knew him knew he had a heart for the people he worked with. Mike will be remembered for his quick wit, his personality and a gentle man who always smiled. I am privileged to have worked with him at two separate agencies. My heartfelt condolences to all his loved ones. Rest in peace my friend.
