I met Mike in 1991 in Three Rivers, TX and we quickly became great friends as well as colleagues especially since Mike was a fellow gamer. We tried Kelly's patience with the amount of time we spent together as I was single those first years. I cooked meals at their house for all of us when Kelly first developed serious nausea from pregnancy and Mike tried numerous things Kelly had never been able to get him to try, that he ended up enjoying. Mike was a central figure in organizing my bachelor party to be spent at Nancon science fiction and gaming convention in Houston in 1996 and I have many fond memories I and my wife Angela spent with Mike, Kelly, each of the boys as they came along, and balancing our time together with exposure to their cats and my allergies to them. Mike was a true friend especially during a rough time in my life when having a true friend living nearby was extremely helpful and I've always appreciated Kelly's kindness and patience with me. I regret the last time we saw Mike & Kelly was in Orange TX in 2000 but I'm glad he had such an adventurous and fulfilling happy life while he was with us.

I first met Mike in 1993 at Three Rivers Refinery when I was a summer intern. I returned full-time the next year and we had a blast for the next four years. Mike loved practical jokes and enjoyed the ones in which he was the target too. He and I left the same year in 1998. I was blessed to reunite with him three years later at Cedar Bayou as he requested I join his team as one of the operations engineers. Once again, we had fun. Mike taught me how to work and play in a way that was productive and responsible. Mike, you are missed. Thank you for all the memories.

I first met Mike almost 10 years ago through work, and he quickly became a respected colleague and good friend. Mike was always fair and totally honest with people, conveying his thoughts directly with a lovely sense of humour. He always sought to support you, develop you, and helped you celebrate your achievements. He was a wonderful man and role model, and I miss him greatly.

Mike was my bigger, older brother! We met in Baytown, TX and the Hooper’s house was like my second home. So many memories, I cant put them all into words. Divorce, love bugs, hurricanes, teaching buddies, Lane in my classroom twice. Dachshunds and crazy cats! Pool time and great feasts! Mike was the best man at our wedding and I loved his hugs. A host of feelings arise when I think of Mike! He was loved and will be missed!

Mike was a wonderful big brother to me. As the youngest daughter, I didn't see too many advantages to having two older brothers at first. Our interactions involved lots of trickery and teasing. But the one big benefit, was that someday they could beat up a bully for me! The one time I finally asked Mike to do me this favor, he said "yes I COULD do that, but it is probably better to talk it out". Life lesson one of many that he delivered.

He took his role as first born seriously and was quick to impart guidance and wisdom to us. He was a writer and shared several beautiful poems with us at meaningful times such as our father's funeral and my wedding. He also wrote a "guide to adulting" for his kids and ours, with practical advice on how to manage money, maintain your car etc as well what is most important when choosing a partner. His love for Kelly and commitment to their romance, was an inspiration.

I think of him as a gentle giant genius and I see so much of him in his sons and a little bit of him in my kids and nephews. All the good stuff.

Love you and miss you- Mooch

I knew Mike since 2012 when he used to work in Saudi Arabia. He was such a Gem of a person. I shared a special bond with him and his family. We were constantly in touch even after he left Saudi Arabia.My last personal meeting with Mike was in 2018 when he was in Egypt. The last time we spoke was only a couple of months back when he had called me to enquire about my health after I underwent Angioplasty procedure in June,2020.Such was his relationship with me.He genuinely cared for people as he was one of the best human beings I ever met.

I will surely miss you, my dearest friend. I am sure you will be smiling after reading my message as you always do. May God bless you always,Mike.

Warm Regards,

Sudhir Nair

Mike was my cousin and I can tell you that if you ever met him you never forgot him. I’m not referring to his height. In our family being over 6 ft comes with the name. I’m not thinking about the many stories he had with his world travels. And I’m not referring to the outsized love I know he had for his beautiful wife Kelly and their boys. No, this is personal and it’s about Mike himself. Since I was a kid I looked up to Mike. He was little older and had that something special that to this day has always made me smile when I thought of Mike. It was his personality, his presence, and above all his laugh. Family reunions to me as a kid meant summer days/nights on the James River, crabbing, practical jokes, and lots and lots of laughs. Many of them courtesy of Mike. I’m so blessed he was part of my life. God Bless...
