Mike was a patient and loving father to his two children providing them with loving support and surprising them with material things before they even knew they needed them. His grandchildren were the light of his world and you would find Mike leaving early in the morning to take them to school, and in the afternoon to pick them up from school and bring them home for a snack and playtime. Children loved Mike including the ones that attended Janet’s daycare.

The family wishes to thank all of the caregivers during his illness and for the prayers from his friends.

Mike and I worked together for over 40 years. He was always laughing and making others laugh. He loved his wife, girls, and grandkids and talked about them daily. He was a good friend. He will be missed.

Rest in peace old friend.

It was a pleasure working with Mike in Dining Services at A&M for many years. He always had kind words and a smile everytime I would have to go to what every locations he would be working at. God has gained another angel. Praying that God will put a hedge of protection around the family. You have my deepest condolences from Danny and Virginia Sauls.
