All I know is that Mike was without a doubt one of GOD'S best creations! He and I attended a Doobie Brothers concert, back in the day at Blossom, and had a truly great time. That was just one of countless great times we had! He was just the best of the best, as many folks have posted! RIP Mike and thanks for being the friend that you were to so many of us! We'll see you again my friend and so thankful for that opportunity to do so!

My deepest sympathies to Mikes family. Mike always had the greatest smile and made others that worked for him laugh and strive hard to achieve in the work place all that he knew we could. A fair and faithful man who was so proud of his beautiful family. I don’t think I ever saw Mike get mad. He was very easy going and fun to work for. Another angel has their wings. He will be missed.

Carrie, Dan and family - you have my deepest sympathy on Mike’s passing. He will be truly missed by his MTD family. Mike was always thinking of innovative ways to make MTD better. He cared a great deal about his employees. He always had a minute to talk no matter the subject. I could tell how much pleasure it brought him to talk about his family. Knowing his family for many years I’m sure his parents would be proud of all he accomplished. We have lost a dear friend and associate. Ken Brown
