    Mike was one of the first people I met when I started traveling to major shoots. His advice and friendship will be missed by myself and family.

    I shot on a squad with Mike for several years at the Spring Grand in Tucson. He was a gentleman and will be missed. My condolences to his family and friends along with my prayers for his eternal rest.

    That is very sad news, I knew mike for the last 8 year or so. He was a great guy and I shot with him several times. I loved his accent, when Mike talked to you he sounded like John Wayne. He will be missed by all of us.

    Our deepest sympathies.

    Terry & Nancy Jordan.

    Thank You for the great picture. Mike was not only a trapshooter & friend, but also an avid quail hunter, a damn good one, I might add.

    It was easy to get a picture of Mike with a big smile on his face. He will be greatly missed.

    My sincerest sympathies to Jean and family. Mike was always a joy to be around. I think he and Paul Sedwick are stepping to the line as we think of them.
