Mike and Bobby did our HVAC work. They replaced our HVAC units and water heaters. I always looked forward to seeing them both. (Even though they sent me a bill!) They were such a great team together. I always enjoyed Mike’s dry sense of humor. I know he will be missed by Everyone he touched.
Sincerely,
Dan

Mike was always a happy sweet person and never had a "bad day". I do not recall him ever saying a bad word about anyone. He truly was a a very sweet and kind soul who brought humor into every room he entered. Now he is in heaven with the angels and making them all laugh. No worries, be HAPPY Mike !
