I will remember Uncle Mike as one of the Pioneers of Space Flight and Exploration. He helped others who Tested and or helped build the components and sections of the Saturn V Rockets. Uncle Mike helped do some of the very important destructive testing on the "Interstage Ring" of the Saturn V Rocet.
Those rockets helped to do many things such as the Sky Lab mission, but also helped to make that "one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind"... The many years that followed, showed that mankind can and will continue to shoot far beyond the Heavens, and to continue to reach for the Stars.

Dad and i spent alot of our time together fishing. No matter where our relationship was at the time, being out on the boat,hauling in fish or just talking seemed to make everything else disappear. I will miss that.
