I had the pleasure of working with Mike at Arrow Concrete,we drove mixer truck together. He had a way make you smile or laugh even if you were having a bad day. When he started one of the guys looked at his time card and said what’s his name?zookeeper? We started calling him that from that day on,everybody there had a nickname.My favorite was when we’d be talking about something and his famous response of”oooh yeah”He was a great guy.May he rest in peace in the house of the lord.God bless you Mike,I’ll catch you on the other side someday brother.

I’m so sorry to hear of Mike’s passing. When I think of Mike, I see a boy walking around the neighborhool pushing a lawn mower. I haven’t seen Mike in a long time but I have fond memories of him. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.
