I have so many fond memories of Mike, but there is one that stands out in my mind. Sometime in '86 or '87, Mike was staying with us until the school year was over. I had fixed dinner, which was soft tacos. Us Davis's always had a hard time eating them without losing all the goodies and making a mess on our plate. We sat down to eat, and Mike just sat there with his little grin and said "you guys are doing it wrong!" So he showed us how to fold and hold while eating them, so we wouldn't make such a mess on our plates. To this day, every time I eat a taco, I think of Mike and that will last with me until the end of my days on this earth.
Rest in Peace Mike,
Jean Davis

30 some years ago, while Mike was in high school, he was faced with moving to a new location and a new H.S. He wanted to finish the year with his class. Mike asked if he could live with us for that period. We consented and that cemented a fond and lasting relationship. Jean & I have cherished that bond all these years. Mike was like a son. Later, Mike hired on with Land Inc. We worked on the same crew for years. Mike was a hard worker and a valuable asset to his profession. It was our great pleasure to be a part of his life.

Goodbye Mike, we will never forget your gentle laugh and warm smile. You will be missed.
We love you;
Ron and Jean Davis

Uncle Mike, I will never forget where I was and what I was doing when I found out about your accident. I'm so heartbroken and sad for you and all of us that knew you and loved you. I will never forget your jokes, smile, attitude, positivity, work ethic and the genuine love you gave to me as a kid going through some things. At one point in my life you leveled with me like no one else could. You were an uncle and a friend. I'll never forget when you corrected me for calling you "Mike" by accident. As much fun as you were you still corrected me when I was wrong. You were a great role model for me and I'll always charish the time you made for me and the extra mile you went to be a loveing caring uncle. Jesus must be so happy being with you and holding you tight. Uncle Mike you were a great man, and a man alot of people look up to. I will miss so much about you, I'll play Kid Rock extra loud and be good to others they way you were good to me in your memory. Love you miss you.
Little Rich.

My brother Rick and I live in North Highlands Addition where Mike was working when God needed him to come home. I never had the privilege of meeting Mike, but Rick walked down every day to talk with him and the others while they were working. Rick told me every day when he returned home that Mike and all others made him feel welcome, and always talked with him. We were both there when Mike finished his final job on earth, and know the angels were flying with him towards Heaven where he got his wings. I'm sure if we look hard enough we will see him swooping through the sky. My brother will miss him.

I didn't know Mike real well as I only ever had the privilege of being around him when he would come to my town for work but what I do know is he will be sorely missed by many. He was one of the hardest working men I'd ever met, He was always smiling, always in a good mood, fun to be around and work with. Mike was one of the kindest, most genuine people you could ever hope to meet. Rest in Peace brother. May you find peace at God's side.
