  1. So sad to hear about Mike’s passing. We worked on a team together at Purina for several years. He was always telling stories about his family and his vacations, plus he was my “go to” person whenever I needed a tool to perform a fix-it issue in the office. He always had a smile. My sympathy to Mary and the rest of the family.

  2. I will always remember Michael by his smile, but more so, for what a loving & compassionate husband he was for Mary. He was always there when she needed help. Plus the whole time that I’ve known him & Mary, I can, 1in all honesty, say that I’d never heard him say anything bad about anyone. Please accept my condolences, know that I’m praying for you all and what a fabulous, “stand-up” guy he was.
    Keep him in your hearts. I’m sure you are all still in his.

  3. I worked with Mike on many projects over the years at Nestle. I could always count on him to draw up plans for what I needed for parts. I enjoyed working with him and enjoyed his positive attitude. Sorry for your loss.

  4. I worked with Mike when we were both with Nestle Purina, a brilliant man and nothing was ever too much trouble. Very sad to hear that he has passed.
