I was saddened to learn of the passing of Michael. I worked with him on numerous projects and found him to be a most capable engineer and co-worker. He will be missed at Shermco. My condolences to his family and friends.

Michael was a good man of high moral character. This being obvious during our conversations, whether they regarded work or strayed off course to something more persoanl. He will be missed. My prayers are with the surviving family for their loss.

Michael was a gentle and kind soul. He was the traveler of the Engineering Department. While working in the office, you could see him out walking every day at lunch. His projects took him abroad to many countries. We all traveled with him thru his photos and stories that he shared during his trips. May he find eternal peace on his last journey. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Godspeed, Michael.
