I met Mike when I started working for Washington Township. Working with him through the years I can only say he was always a happy person. He looked at everything from the positive angle and was always willing to help no matter when you called him. His sudden death had an impact on so many people and this man will be missed everyday. I am honored to have known him and worked with him through the years. Fly high Mike, until we meet again.
