Mike and I worked together for about a year. I was always impressed with how much he adored his family, and the way he talked to his wife and sons on the phone if he got a midday call from them.

Funny story.. One day Mike decided to come in an hour late to show me how it feels when your coworker shows up late to work (i'm a habitual 20 minute late guy). But the problem was is he told our bosses that I had a habit of being late. Well our bosses were in town and organized a sit down with us and found out what happened and Mike got written up instead of me, to this day I still don't know if he got as big of a laugh out of that one as I did.

My fondest memory was when we used to race.. He had that blue supercharged GT and I had my bolt on SS, he would get so pissed that my bolt on car would run door to door with his supercharged GT. That was by far my favorite SN95 body GT that I had ever seen, and he was damn proud of it.

Another memory is of us debating taking his oil filter off of his white F150 in the parking lot (in full dress clothes including ties) to see if it was pumping oil because his oil pressure gauge all of the sudden stopped registering. We both agreed that if it had no oil pressure it should be knocking/tapping and that we would definitely know before he got home because it would dump a rod out the side of the block if it didn't have any oil pressure.. We had a little laugh about that too.

Rest In Peace Mike, regardless of your quirks you'll be missed by many.

When I first read that he had an accident, I imagined it was from his driving. When we went out on our routes together, he drove like a maniac in that white 95 f150. We were headed up 75 and came upon stopped traffic. Without missing a beat, he hit the shoulder and went bouncing straight down the embankment about 150 feet and onto the service road. All of the while, he had this shit eatin' grin on his face.

He would haul ass everywhere we went. He trusted that radar detector so much, he didn't slow down unless it started going crazy.

Oh wow.... i can't believe this happened!!

I first met Mike when i sold him a set of shorty headers for a F150. He was new to the board then so I gave him the DL on how the board worked and on who some of the characters on the board were at that time.

We occasionally sent PMs back and forth and kept in touch with each other. I found out he did roof work, and I mentioned a leak that I had and he came out and looked at it. We then went to home depot and bought some shingles and stuff, and he climbed up on my roof and fixed it - all for free. That's the Mike I remember.

Later on a hailstorm took my roof, so I called Mike again and he put a new roof on for very little money. I think that's about the time that he decided to get into the roofing business.

We lost contact after that but i saw the drama that went on in some threads and I defended him a couple of times.

He was a troubled soul that loved his family very much - that came through every time we talked.

RIP Mike - you are a good man.

Mike was working on a building next to my PD one day. He sent me a text saying he was watching me. I sent him one back and told him to hold up his cigarettes he had in his right hand I was trying to site in my rifle. He sent me one back saying "cut that shit out, the hair on his neck just stood up". I never did tell him I had my new binoculars out. LOL

Very sad to hear this. Mike and I had a little rift one time on the old board, ended up talking it through over the phone, and we were cool from there on out. He did seem like the type that carried some dark stuff on his shoulders, and he always put it all right out there for any/everyone. Regardless though, he always seemed genuine to me...and he came across as having a big heart. Unfortunately these situations always create family fractures that will never heal...especially for the young ones.

Godspeed Mike - peace be with you and your family.

This picture is right after we finished my shop build back in April. We were wrapping things up and he says to me "hey take a picture of the finished product", so I did, and right when I pull the phone up to take the picture he runs into the frame and with drill in hand. That's just the type of guy he was, trying to find a little humor in everything.

I had it out with him on this board over some bs, but after we squashed it we talked several times about business. It's really sad to hear this news. From the little I dealt with him, he was a good dude. Thoughts and prayers to his family and friends.

Godspeed friend, your journey has only begun!
