Mike was a transplant survivor and was very ill for a number of years. It was unfortunate he could not attend the 50th. If you saw him in grade school he started life with one of the largest smiles with laughter in his eyes of anyone we knew. And who else was tall enough to be the Drum Major:-). Great photos of Mike and Diane Stone on the team together will still bring a smile to anyone. And he truely did have a family many would want to brag about. May God bless your sole in Heaven Mike.

Mike and I were friends while at Woodward. He had a Jeep Wrangler that he drove in HS and Cleon gave him the contract to remove the snow from the circle and parking lots. Many times I road with him and and would keep snow from building up on the plow. I lost contact with Mike after graduation as I left for boot camp (Navy) and then Vietnam. Mike join the Navy a few months later.

Mike you will be missed but not forgotten, you were a friend and classmate. God bless you and your family!

Seeing that smile and remembering that height brings back wonderful memories of Mike.  I'm saddened to know about his recent health problems.  He was a good man.  Seeing his name and Cleon's linked with that wonderful story of his snow clearing makes me miss them both.
