My name is Tom Schoenlein. I worked for Delco Products-Dayton in sales and living in Detroit, I represented Delco at Fisher Body for the Delco wiper systems. I was in Dayton every week working with Mike on the wiper systems Delco was supplying to Fisher Body for the new GM cars. Mike would try to explain to me the latest designs to fit in the new GM cars Fisher Body was working on and I would go to Fisher Body in Warren,Mich. to explain our latest designs to fit the wiper system in the future GM cars. Mike was so smart. I had trouble understanding his new designs but Mike was patient with me and finally got his message to me. This was in the 1967-1972 time frame. I always admired Mike for his patience with me and vast engineering design knowledge. After 1972 I was assigned to Pontiac for Delco working on other Delco products. I stayed in contact with Mike over the years at Delco-Dayton. I was moved back to Delco-Dayton in 1975. Mike was a great person and engineer. He was always a gentleman. God bless him and his family at this time.
