Knew Mick since grade school at the Mary E. Taylor building. He was a fast runner and had a distinctive laugh that I still remember. So sad to see our classmates leaving our world. Rest In Peace my friend.

I had one of my best summers when Mike hired me to work with him. He was happy I had a van to haul the staging around! He was very patient while teaching me the ropes. Lots of laughs and fun. Thank you Cluke, may you Rest In Peace.
