Lois and I send our condolences to the whole family. Mike was always kind and friendly to me. And his left-handed tennis strokes were a challenge in our long-ago matches.
Mike was a dear friend who I enjoyed attending racing events with. His knowledge of motor sports was second to none. When we would meet at Sam’s Club Mike always had a story & held up the line telling it.
God Bless my friend.You are going home.
