  • Sorry to hear of Mike’s passing. Mike and I worked together at Eaton Corp and I always enjoyed his friendship and giving him a hard time. I’m retired in Florida now so I never saw him very offen but I enjoyed our phone conversations. I just talked with him a couple of weeks ago and will always remember that conversation. RIP Mike and may you and Chad enjoy your time together.

  • Mike was my mom’s best friend of 47+ years and I had the honor and privilege to go on vacation to him and Debbie’s home when I was a young girl, I will never forget that trip. He was just the kindest sweetest soul ever. Loved his family and friends. My mom is heartbroken to lose a lifelong friend and I am too. I am so sorry to debbie and his girls and all the family. You all will for sure be in all of our hearts thoughts and prayers. Xoxoxo Shea Martz
