I worked with Mike many years at R&L Spring Co. I could always count on Mike for his words of wisdom he shared. I was blessed to have his friendship. Our sympathies and prayers to his family in their loss.

So sorry for the loss of Mike. I hadn't seen him for several years, but was able to reach him by phone last year. He was the same old Mike I remembered. Mike worked for my company, R&L Spring, from 1992 until his retirement around 2010. He was a one of our best springmakers, and his legacy lives on today with the many current employees he helped learn his trade. He was very dedicated to his job and my company, and set an example that lives on today in those he trained. Mike was not a yes man, very far from it, which is what I respected most about him. He was someone who truly cared about the place he worked , and those he worked with, and was always straight with you, telling you exactly what was on his mind.
The pic is from his first trip to Canada with me. With typical beginners' luck, he caught this 20# Lake Trout, which still stands as the biggest we've boated on that lake. After that he made several trips there with me, along with others from R&L. Many great memories there, I was fortunate to have him along and got to know him better. Many hours we also spent on the golf course, both in our company league and other events. He was a good man who loved his family, and I know missed his wife to the end. He'll be truly missed.
