Condolences to all family and friends. I worked with Mike at Gold Cross Ambulance in the early 80's. Mike's intelligence and hard work promoted a work ethic that was infectious and continues with me today as I educate young medical professionals in the College of Medicine at The University of Oklahoma. With a kind and caring attitude as one of my early educators, he never made me feel like I couldn't be a paramedic because I was "a girl." One of my big brothers will be greatly missed.

Mike, you were taken to soon. You were a caring person, that always made me and the boys laugh, and would be there for us in a second if needed(Brad and the Dogs included). I can honestly say over the years that I have known you I do not think I ever saw you get mad or raise your voice. You were the meaning of a kind soul. Find Zoe girl, and give her a good hug and petting from us. You are missed. Thank you Mike for everything that you helped with over the years, big and little. Ethan and Andrew will miss their uncle Mike. Rest in Peace and God Bless, until we all can share a laugh together again‚ô°

Condolences to all of Mike’s family and friends. I worked with Mike for a number of years at Fauquier Hospital. He was just an all around great guy to work with - reliable, kind, good sense of humor, - and he had your back. Loved that guy.

A loving man has just left us for heaven! Knowing him for almost 20 years is the best thing that ever happened to me in my life. He's very smart, kind, sincere, warm-hearted, open-minded, accepting, supportive of family and friends, caring and the list is just endless. I am and I know a lot of us are deeply saddened by his departure. Mike will always be in our heart and will very much be missed!
