    Tom always called Mike Bubba. They played many sports together on the Essex teams. Mike was always so calm and easy going. Many years working at Essex together and later talking to him at Mitchell football games watching his son play football. We always thought a lot of him. Prayers to the family.

    Mike was a younger cousin that I didn’t know well. We had moved to Ohio and only saw them occasionally. He and I both enjoyed NASCAR and would see Facebook comments on our driver # 14. He was always smiling and do cheerful at the family reunions. He will be missed by all. Deepest sympathies for Missy Shane and the family.
