I think I met Mike when I was a freshman in school at Donelson High and he became my first "crush". Mike was a terrific, very nice, tremendously funny guy and a top notch athlete. My Dad also worked at Avco and so we had a little in common. I adored Mike then and have always kept him in my heart as a dear friend .
My favorite memory would have to be the 1955 green Ford he always drove at top speed as he would round the curve by Sandra Douglas's house on corner of Kent Rd and Hastings causing great fear to Mrs. Hazel Born who lived on other corner. We all hung out in Sandra's yard and would always watch with great trepidation as to outcome of his perilous driving!
My prayers to Vicki and children for your huge loss. Mike will be missed by all that knew and loved him.
Love you my old friend.

Mike and I worked at the same company, Avco/Textron in Nashville, he was very well respected by everyone.
We got to know him on a personal level when his son, Joey married our daughter, Karen and both families would spend holidays and birthdays together over the years.
Mike loved to play water volleyball in the summer months at Joey and Karen's pool. Even when his health prevented him from taking part in the games, he would offer his support with the score-keeping and would always make the right calls!
Mike was a quiet and kind person who will be missed by his family and friends.

Bowling with Mike and the fellowship we all shared is a memory that will last forever. So many trips, tournaments, meetings and league bowling to mention. The fondest memory I share of Mike is his love for a milkshake after we bowled! I can remember him being so cold in Steak and Shake he was trembling, although, he had to have that vanilla shake! Love you my friend and you will be missed.
