Mike and I meet in 1987, at the Jacksonville, Fl. G M Training Center.
I had a new Chevy truck with"Delamination" Paint problems.
Mike explained the Who, what, why of it..
And I said "I hope you have a great day..
He said "Not too Good, I have to get these guy's that have been welding panels there entire lives, to understand, they now have to use glue"
This is when Mike towed a Chevy APV frame assembly around..
Chevy APV was call "All Propose Vehicle"
We at the GM dealerships, called them "All plastic Vehicle"
16 years later. Mike and I were hired to work with GM/ACDelco... THE SAME DAY...
I said "Hey I know you!!!!"
For years Mike and I worked together, had a "Few beers" together... Traded stories...
I have attached a photo of us at the Hydrogen Test lab in Long Beach, California, 2007 after we drove the Hydrogen powered van.
God Bless you Mike...
My friend for ever...

Mike was a wonderful father to two beautiful girls. Honoring our father and mother is to honor them with a legacy we leave behind. He worked tirelessly to help mold and shape their lives for them to flourish and become the women of God that they are. They are following his example by devoting their lives to their precious families. Can anyone ask for more as he transitions back to the glorious mansion Jesus has prepared for us? Mike, I celebrate that you are at home and at peace.
Love , your favorite sister-in-law.........I know, I know.....as you reminded me, I am your only sister-in-law. Joan
