I’m very sorry to hear about Michael’s passing. Over the years I’ve always wondered where he went and what he did. He and I took classes Karate together at Minot AFB from Sensei Nate Williams. Michael was an excellent martial artist. What I remember most about him was his smile and sense of humor and good nature towards others. I’m glad to see that he was surrounded by a loving family and friends.
