I can't believe I am just hearing about this! I am so sorry to hear of Mike's passing, but I am glad he is able to rest. He has always been such a warm, sweet man that I have had a pleasure of working with the last 4 years at BlueLinx. I have never met him in person as I work at the Atlanta headquarters, but our phone conversations made it seem as if I had known him forever. He had such a fatherly manner about him and very personable to where anyone would come to him for comfort, advice, or just a good laugh. Mike will truly be missed by the company and myself, personally. I look forward to seeing him again in the Paradise. May he sleep well and remain in God's memory. My condolences to the family and those affected by his passing. May the God of comfort take notice and wrap you within his love.
