Jennysue, I was shocked to hear of Mike's untimely death. He was a great guy and I enjoyed working with him at Catalytic and Phoenix.
You and your family are in our prayers.
I regret that I am unable to attend the memorial service.

Hi Jenny:

It was so sad to learn of Mikes passing. Besides being a business partner at Phoenix Engineering, he and I were fraternity brothers. I am Phi Tau at N C State. Please pass on to your family Delores and my condolences. Mike was a really great guy and I feel fortunate to have known and worked with him.

I worked with Mike during his entire time with PENTA Engineering and he was always pleasant and easy to converse with. He spoke highly of his family, especially his wife, son, and his son’s family and all the work he would do on the side beside his son. He was an active guy, not one to settle into an easy chair after retirement. I will miss his beaming smile and merry disposition greatly.

I knew Mike when I worked for ATI-Allvac in Monroe, NC and before I came to work for PENTA Engineering in 2014. He was always a great and enthusiastic help to me when I was transitioning from a manufacturing company to an engineering design firm. I can only hope to know a tenth of what he knew about Electrical Engineering in my career. He was always gracious and kind to me and he will be sorely missed. God Bless his family and friends during this time. "And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away." Rev.21:4
