In the army you were my brother when we were so far away from family. As a Trooper you were only a phone call away when when needed.. You called one evening to share information about a traffic stop in Sierra Blanca, TX. I was working checkpoint in T or C, NM. You told me the guys you stopped were likely to be passing my way that night. Most likely with a hefty load of contraband. After meeting you and a BP canine they wouldn't be foolish enough to return to Missouri via Siera Blanca. TX. Sure enough late that night at the checkpoint in NM the car arrived. The dogs hit the car driving up the line. Roughly 500lbs of no good in the trunk. I told them, Trooper Hulburt says to tell you fellas hello! I'll never forget calling you that night with my end of the story we laughed like little kids. Just like we did years ago, telling stories in ElPaso, and Samolia. As I am a nativeTexas boy, I was so proud of you becoming a Texas State Trooper. Mike, from the day I arrived at Ft Bliss and met you and Clay in front of the MP armory in Fort Bliss you have always been my friend, and my brother. Ultimately you have become one of my heroes. I would ride the river with you any day! Mike, I would say I'll miss you but you will never be far away from awesome memories. I love you Brother!! Vaya Con Dios!!

Whenever I would pass through El Paso I’d Reach out to my childhood friend. We used to run and hide from the police as kids. 🤣

Mike-I write this message to you knowing that the family will understand where my heart is and with the greatest of needs to put this out in the universe. Words can not begin to express the profound sadness I am feeling right now. For 29 years you have been a part of my life and it is unfathomable to me that you are gone. Through all of the ups and downs, one thing has remained constant-we have two of the most amazing kids in the world and no matter what we always came together for them. I thank you for that, and I promise you that you will remain a part of their lives. Our grandchildren will get to see your pictures, they will get to hear your stories, and they will know what a character their Grandpa Mike was. Rest easy knowing that you accomplished your 3 biggest dreams in life-being a soldier, being a Trooper, and being a truck driver-and on top of that your helped bring two amazing human beings into this world. Mission complete. <3 We miss you and you will always hold a special place in our hearts. Shay
