Mike was a great friend. We were classmates, study partners, and project teammates at Missouri Institute of Technology in Kansas City. We graduated together, traveled together to far off New Mexico to start our new careers at Sandia Labs. His sense of humor helped both at school and in the transition to life with a job. Mike and his family helped me adjust to my first time away from home; just a normal family evening of games, movies, being around his kids, and then the Thanksgiving dinner tradition meant so much.
We both decided that returning to school was the thing to do for our careers. So once again we were classmates, study partners, and project teammates at UNM. Mike was always one that could figure out the solution to a challenging problem, both in school and at work. If I missed a class at UNM I seemed to learn more as he explained the lecture and shared his notes. And once again we graduated together. Although we didn’t work together, our jobs soon had us in sister organizations working in the same building so that we saw each other daily. We often went to lunch together.
Mike and his family always had a special place in my heart. We shared many life events together. He was a groomsman for my wedding.
After he retired, we didn’t see him very often, but when we did it was as if nothing had changed. The sense of humor was always there.
