Mike was one of the most hard working, dedicated individuals that I ever met. It was just about impossible to keep up with the man.
Our sincere condolences go out to the family.

Mike was a good friend during our time at Laurens High School but lost track of him after I got married in 1970. Michael was always a kind man. I send my condolences to the family and so sorry for your loss. God be with you all.

Mike was an remarkable co-workers at Rexroth who kept things going and always went the extra mile. No matter how stressful and tight his schedule was, he never said 'no'to offer help and support. I will greatly miss working with him. My sincere condolences to his family.

I first meet Mike in 1980 when we worked at Marquette Metal Products / Curtis Wright. I worked there for about 3 years. During that he taught me a lot of things about machining. Several years later I got to work with Mike again at Rexroth. He eventually became my boss as I took over ordering tooling and supplies. Once again Mike taught me a lot about that too. He surely will be missed by all. I would to express my condolences and my admiration sincerely David Stover
