Mike Wiley was a good listener. He said what he thought even knowing he could upset you. Mike didn't mince words. He was to the point and you always knew where you stood with him. I lived with Mike and Susan while going through a divorce and he was there for me, along with Susan, guiding me, through my job at Cessna, and in my personal life. He never judged, and he was supportive of any decisions I made in life. He was hard, but he cared. I will truly miss this man.
