We both had fond memories of Mike at the Comal County Sheriff's Office and after he retired. Our thoughts are with his family, friends and work family. Now he may rest at peace as others will continue the good fight.

I recall one night during my 25 year career with the Comal County Sheriff's Office when I first met Mike. It was during a chilly night on FM 311 where I backed up Mike at a car crash south of the Guadalupe River. He was new to the shift and I found out quickly that Mike was a crusty gruff worker who was all business but very professional in his demeanor. As time went on, anyone could tell he loved his job and he told fellow officers with a devilish grin that if he was "forced" to perform a traffic stop, they were going to get a ticket. Yikes! No mercy warnings from Mike! I admired his persistence and it seemed he had a rare gift of smelling out illegal marijuana on his traffic stops and was nearly daily taking someone to jail! I was saddened when Mike retired as I would miss his gruff disposition and tenacious police skills. In retirement, he committed himself to his favorite passion: Fishing. He made it his prime duty as an avid angler over age 62 to "arrest" any fish he came into contact with from Canyon Lake. I will sorely miss him as a brother-in-arms, his professional wit and his dry humor.
