I worked with Mike for over 20 years at OSU. I would spend my break time visiting with him daily. Thats how we found out Mikes dad and my dad were Army buddys.I would visit Mike in Perkins and talk Cushmans and microphones. We talked about Nathan and the Farm. I will miss Mike . Sorry i missed the service I found out saturday. My condolences for family and friends.

I didn't know Michael personally, but have friends that did. I'm so very sorry to hear of his passing and hope that all friends and family have memories shared with him to keep them comforted during the many days and hours they find themselves missing him. Prayers to all who knew and will miss him in the moments ahead.

So saddened by the news of Mike's passing. Mike was a good friend, drummer and recording engineer. We had many happy years together while he played with Franell and Midnight Express during the Stillwater years. He will be missed.

My name is Stephen Turner. I worked with Mike in the lab at the OSU Power Plant. I have many good memories of working with Mike. He really loved his kids and had pictures of them in the lab. He was so proud of Nathan & Abby. I heard so many nice stories of mom & dad. My wife Linda and I would like to express our deepest sympathy to all the family and you will be in our thoughts and prayers. God bless.

So sad to hear this. My condolences to the family. As a student, my first recording experience was with Mike in Stillwater. First in a small building off 6th street with Carolyn Meyer and then later in his studio near his home recording with Jim Alexander. So very kind and patient with this country boy who was so naive! We also played together in Jim Alexander's band a couple of times.
