If I remember correct when Michel (Mike) hired into ACCOA as a driver there were two Mike's. Because of the radio calls one of us had to be Mike the other Michael. I took on being Michael and it still sticks today even though I'm not working there. Mike was a great driver and friend he will be missed by all. Rest In Pease Mike.

I am very sddened by Mike's passing. He was always such a character when we were growing up. My brother Tom and I were remembering that silly T-ball Jotter (pen) that was taken away because he kept clicking it. We were more like siblings than cousins. We were in the same classes at ICS and I spent a lot of time at the Maurer house on 12th St and on Florida Ave.
Oh, Michael Harold, you will be missed.
Much love to the family.

Mike was a special guy. He was a great co-worker with a great sense of humor, but more than that, he was a friend. He will definitely be missed. May God be with you and your family in the future.
