Messages for the Family

  1. Cris Corley says:
    Mike, what a dear friend. He loved sitting on the shoreline and catching bass. He taught me a lot about wildlife and his conversations were never dull. Mike had a big heart and all of his fishing buddies will miss him dearly. We will all get the latest fishing conditions and what kind of bait to use on the Jordan River, when we cross over. Love you Mike.
  2. Megan Forgacs says:
    Although I only met him a couple of times, I heard a lot of funny stories from Lindsey. Mike seemed like such a character, larger than life. I immediately liked him when I met him and found him truly hilarious and warm. I am so sorry to your entire family for a great loss.

    We were just talking about Mike the other day. He was always smiling & cutting up. He definitely loved fishing & would show up at the weigh ins. We worked together for many years. I loved him like a brother!

    I worked with Mike a number of years at TVA. He was good friend to me and helped me a lot at the plant. Due to my own physical ailment I was not able to attend the services. But I truly miss a good friend and man.
