I first met Mike when he was a student in my class years ago, and I was happy to support him when he started his own business. He was my lawn guy for years, and I truly appreciated him. I am very sorry to hear of his passing, and my deepest condolences go out to his family. May he Rest In Peace.

To the Jackson family; Mike was a friend and business associate for over 20 years. I am so very saddened for your loss and the loss of my friend. Every member of my family knew & liked him. I even introduced him to my business family at Carter Machinery. He was a very good man and I will miss him very much. You have my deepest condolences. ❤️

We were lucky to meet Mike when he was working down the street and I asked him for help with our lawn. He was the best, all around great guy. He was caring and fun, had such a great sense of humor. We will miss him. Please accept our condolences.

I am so very sad to see this news. Frank and I have known Mike and Katy since before they were Mike and Katy. Mike was what I'd say a "gentle spirit". He was kind and generous. He took care of my parents lawn for me for many years, always doing a great job. He impressed my dad, which isn't easy to do.
Katy, my heart breaks for you and the children. Mike was way to young. Remember to carry his memories with you, in your heart, speak his name always, and he'll live forever there and in the hears of his children.
