Michael and I have been friends for quite awhile. I met him at the dealership, his place of work when I was trying buying a car.
He was a professional sales guy with lots of knowledge about Toyota products. I nickname him AKA MR TOYOTA..
He was such a kind hearted fellow I remember the first time he met my son and he took him to the part department and got him a gift. My son held on to it for many years and whenever we drove by the dealership my son is always asking me to stop by and see Michael, I believe for another gift lol.
It was a shocking news when I stopped by the dealership and found out he as passed!
Mr Toyota my good friend may your rest in eternal glory Amen.
My son and I say goodbye

I met Mike only once and for a brief period. In that short time frame he left a very deep impression on me. He did not talk much, he was not loud but all the while he had this gentle sweet smile on his face. A smile that seemed to say ‘welcome old friend’, yet we were meeting for the first time. He was at ease with himself like a man with enough love within him and a lot left over for everyone he meets. He truly must have been a good soul.

I have known you since I was in high school to say a family member was lost is correct. Over 20 years, from our time at the old stone mountain Toyota location managing your planner and deciphering your hand writing to the new location our fun arguments over how cars are equipped, color options and features. The thing I remember most about Michael is how funny and smart he was so kind and caring, Mike was a big teddy bear. There is not a time that if I needed help or needed something at the dealership this guy did not step up and help. He gave me the nickname Joshuatree and I miss hearing that everyday. It was a pleasure to have known you and the world is less one great guy and heaven gained an extraordinary angel. Miss you!

Michael as my family calls him has a very warm contagious personality. He is a very honest and humble individual.When I was shopping for a reliable car,he gave me an excellent,professional advice not minding where I decides to purchase.
He will be missed dearly,he is a unique individual with integrity.
His personality commands respect.I have no doubt that he is resting in the bossom of the Lord.

AGAPE Dinner 2010 @ Christ Anglican Church, Houston. Micheal was my guest at this particular dinner, I cannot forget his infectious excitement at the choir's rendition of his favorite gospel song "Above All".

I’ve known Mike for 17 years working with him at Stone Mountain Toyota. Every few days, we would bring each other fruit mostly bananas. He would call me Beb-a-dough and I would respond Mike-a-dough! He was very knowledgeable about the Toyota product. If I didn’t know something, I could always ask him whether it was a current year vehicle or years passed. Mike knew everyone’s tag number at the job. We didn’t know our own tag numbers but Mike did. He was a warm and caring person. My heart is broken. I miss you Mike-a-dough!
