    I remember the first time I met Mike around 27 years ago. I was building my shed out back and had just completed the floor. He walked over from his house with a six foot level and stated “That ain’t level”…to which I replied “By the looks of it, you ain’t level” he smiled back at me and from that moment on, we were friends!

    Mike was always there if I needed a tool or some help building something and we helped each other out over the years when possible.

    Mike was a good friend and neighbor to me and I’ll miss him.
