A gentleman who conveyed so much without saying much at all. He was hard working, intelligent, and a loving father. He’s still the only person I’ve met who would walk on a treadmill and enjoy a cool beverage at the same time. A cool demeanor and an honorable man. Someone to look up to, figuratively and literally.

I will miss his strength of character, and his big, thunderous laugh!

Mike was an inspiration by the way he treated others and the exemplary way he lived. It made no difference what your position in the company was, Mike had a way of making you feel important and valuable. He exuded love for the company and for his service organization. He would listen and discuss ideas that were presented. He valued relationships with us all. His laughter could light up any event.

One of our all time favorite guys!

Many fun times on all the B&H P'burg trips to exotic places.

The very best VP of Service we ever had. His dedication to "once a customer, always a customer" philosophy virtually always guaranteed our sales team the "next" order!

My only beef with Mike over the many years we spent at P'Burg was all the money he won from me at the poker table!!!

Great memories, and our sincere condolences to all your family.

God Bless, Ed and Sandy Chase

Where do you start with memories that go 44 years back? It was always Mike and Norma. We have shared Marriages, passing of Parents, grandchildren ,births and just a closeness that can’t be replaced. Bell and Howell, Trips, moving many times together and laughs all the time. Mike was never the same after Norma, but lived on for his Children and their families. I will always remember Mike as a caring friend and one of a kind. He will be missed but knowing he is with Norma again helps in his passing. He was The most admired Vice President Of Bell and Howell. He will always be remembered fondly
