I've known mike for about 22 years now. To say he won't be missed is an understatement. He was always such a great guy and he was very loved by his work family. My prayers and sympathy to the family.

My husband & I pal'd around with Michael and his wife (ex) in the early 2000's. Michael had a wonderfully dry sense of humor. Once as we were leaving the Lighthouse he accidentally bumped in to me. Wanting to have a little fun with it, I got stern with him and he didn't miss a beat! With a gleam in his eye he jumped in the punk and people thought we were really arguing! Such fun. :-) We moved in 2005; and my beloved crossed over in 2016. Imagine Michael's surprise Monday night seeing Ken again. Mrs. Linda - I'm so sorry for your loss(es). I know Michael hated to leave you. Thankfully it's temporary and soon we will all be reunited for eternity. You are in my prayers. May the God of all Comfort be a comfort to you.

My heart breaks for you and your family Linda. SO many great memories with Michael. His contagious laugh, his love for our community and just his sweet heart in general. Michael brought joy to any room he stepped in. I'm sorry I cant hug your neck at visitation but please know my heart is heavy while I'm out of town on business :(

Love you,
Tracy Crowe Ussery

The first time I met him was at Devotie Baptist Church and he was just the nicest man I have ever met.
