  3. Am sorry to learn of Mike’s passing. He was a good man who treated everyone with respect and understanding. A true gentleman in every sense of the word. I am very fortunate to have known and worked with him.

  4. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. I am thankful I had the pleasure of getting to know Mike on a professional and personal level. Mike always had a good story to tell around the office and treated everyone with respect regardless of your position. He was one of the good guys. Mike will be missed but remembered with a smile.

  5. Jean and Family, Our love and prayers to all of you. We have many fond memories of Mike and will miss him greatly. The Furr Family

  6. Mike was a man of many talents. Being frank and fair were just two of his many fine characteristics. A great man has left us. Memories of Mike will live on and on.

  7. Dear Jean and Family, It is with both sadness and gratitude that I write to honor Mike and send my condolences to you this morning. I have had the privilege of working with him for ten years. He was my boss, but also a friend. His commitment to making a difference for our employees, shareholders, and the well being of travelers and those with disease was always unquestioned. I will never forget his relating how he intentionally diverted his flights as a military pilot in Vietnam to avoid harming villagers. His conscience was always with him. But, his vision will live on in our work to help save those with TB and breast cancer. It will certainly be done in his honor and yours.

  8. It is sad news that Mike has passed away so prematurely, before seeing how the company he founded becomes financially very successful. I will remain forever grateful to him for his honesty, kindness, and all the hard work he put in building the team.

  9. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. It was a pleasure to know Mike who was always fair and fun loving. You will be missed.

  10. Jeez, Just about to turn 63 and was remembering some friends from my Marine Corp days. Decided to Google Mike and naturally, I was floored at finding his obituary. We were room mates in the Marine Corp and often talked about what we would name our kids. We decided on Matthew for a first son and Melissa if the first was a girl. My first son’s name is Matthew. He was a dear dear friend and a Marine’s Marine. I am extremely sorry to know of his passing. Gary J. Villiard Bangkok +66-81-9221468

  11. I spent three years with Mike at ASD HQMC Andrews where we became very close friends. He was a great guy and a great Marine. I was shocked to stumble upon his passing while contemplating a reunion of our old gang from our squadron.Although, two years have already expired since his passing, it has been 40 years since I last saw Mike but I will remember him for another 40 years with fond memories of our time spent together in the USMC.My sincere sympathies to the entire family.
