    One of the best human beings I ever met, his love of his wife and family are second to none, he had great pride in his family and always spoke highly of them. He was a great co worker , we enjoyed working with him. He will be greatly missed by so many. Continous prayers to the family, friends and loved ones for this tremendous loss.

    I have often though what can one say to family and loved ones when one passes? So here it goes and I hope I don’t mess it up…. I am so very sorry for your loss. He was one of the good ones. I worked at WMCC for 10 years prior to transferring to another facility. Mikey will be a co-worker I will never forget. He always had something positive to say And always greeted you with a hi or hello. He was always a supportive co-worker. He never got into the drama of other co-workers. He was everyone’s friend. He knew how to have fun and make you laugh. He always sang that ridiculous song…. My milk shake brings all the boys to the yard, my milk shake is better then yours. And in light of working with male offenders it always made you giggle. Or how he would put in work requests for a stripper pole in the bubble. Oh that brought about a ton of laughs when the supervisor signed it without looking at it but trusted him to be legit. I will never forget the love and dedication he had for his wife when she got so very sick and almost died from health issues. Or how the co-workers for the first time I ever witnessed all came together to take food and well wishes to his house. He just united people with his kindness and shenanigans. He was one I will never forget and have always missed from WMCC. Once again I hope I haven’t messed this up. I am sorry for your loss and he was such a great guy and co- worker.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with Mikey’s family. Mikey was at our house just last week on a service call, we never dreamed it would be the last time we would talk and laugh with him. I am so glad that we had the honor to work with him for many years. Mickey has touched so many lives and we will always remember our friend.

    How very sad. He took the extra time to visit with my elderly mom each time he delivered propane and especially since he knew her husband had recently passed. He commented on her pretty flowers (weeds!) and how much his wife also loved flowers. She got so excited she gave him some to take home to her. Though I don’t know his wife at all it was obvious how very much he loved her as he was so excited to share pictures on his phone of a recent purchase she had made at the Clarksdale auction. He probably never knew what a blessing he was when his truck pulled in, especially to the elderly who don’t have that many ‘visitors’ even if it was just a quick hello and ‘I put your ticket in the door.” Plus he visited with us and made her feel so welcome at the MFA luncheon and when we stopped in the office a few short months ago. Thoughts and prayers to all of his family and his friends and co-workers in Maysville.

    I had the pleasure of working with Mike at the Blue Roof Inn. He was always one I could count on to do the job and do it right. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. Goodby Mike, see you again one day.

    Mikey was the absolute best at FAMILY MAN. He was always showing us, my husband Randy and I pictures of his his family in his phone. His daughter.Kaylee played Volleyball with our granddaughter so we were at VB games together this fall. He celebrated his 10 year anniversary with Michelle this October. He was showing us pictures of when they got married in Hawaii in Oct 2012. He was so proud of it. He loved his “hot wife” and his girls SO MUCH. Michelle, I love you dearly. You have been a dear friend to me since I came to Maysville. Your girls are precious and she certainly loved their Dad❤️. So glad that Mikey loved Jesus. ✝️ He will never be forgotten on this earth, but we rest with peace and assurance of his soul in Heaven.

    Mikey you were more like a little brother to me. I will miss our family camping trips and fishing trips. Funny lstory. Mikey and I went fishing this one time on his boat. Mikey had pizza for lunch. ( If you know Mikey you know what pizza does to him) Mikey kept turning the boat and putting me down wind of him. I helped Mikey get the job with MFA so he would have more time with his family. I trained Mikey on the tablet and delivering propane. I retired may 2022 but we texted about the job everyday. He would call me or text me if he had a question about a customer or a propane issue. I am going to miss those text and calls. One of the last conversation we had was about rabbit hunting after deer season and possibly a float trip next summer. Mikey recently bought a motorcycle, so him and I could ride our motorcycles on trips. Unfortunately we never got to. Go rest high on the mountain brother we will see one another again. My prayers go out to his father, his brother, sister, wife, his 4 girls and the rest of his family. I want to thank my wife Amy for being there for Michelle since the day it happened. RIP Brother.

    Danny , Amy and family.
