He retired from IBT after a 30-year career as Regional Sales Manager. After retirement he enjoyed a new venture in Construction Management. Mike was a man full of faith, love and integrity, and was very devoted to his family and friends. He referred to his loving wife as ''His Angel'' and treasured all their years together.

Mike was a good man and branch manager. He hired me in 1978 and I spent 43 years in power transmission industry thanks to Mike. Mike was alot fun and was very caring individual. I thank God for the opportunity to know Mike and work with him.

God bless
