Mike was a great Landman and good friend. We worked together for years in East Kentucky, and again in 2010 in Washington, PA. He knew the business from every aspect and was always willing to help with problems. He will be missed greatly.

My heartfelt condolences to Michaels\' family during this difficult time. Death is truly an enemy of us all and I am so very sorry for you and your family. I hope this scripture can bring you some comfort during this time. 1 Corinthians 15:26 \"And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing.\" Your loved one will never have to face the last enemy, death, ever again. In the meantime, their acts of faith live on until they stand up alive and whole in the Paradise. Yes how we long to be reunited forever again.

I am so sorry for your loss. I have not seen Mike for several years. We worked together at Equitable Resources. We kept up with each other via Facebook. Mike was a friend. I will miss him and our differences over political views. My prayers are with family and close friends. RIP Mike

Mike was a great friend to me. When I first started in WV for Equitable, he helped me to understand a lot of the Oil and Gas business. He was a very patient and kind man. Always the joker, I truly missed him when he moved away to FL. We were able to remain friends through Facebook and email, and he still made me laugh with his posts. He will remain in my heart always. Rest in peace.
