Our sincerest condloences to Ann and family. Mike and I had been friends for over 40 years. Mike first contacted me in the late 1960’s, I was Adult Advisor to Duncan teen Town, Mike was always interested in our young people. In 1971 he approached me about running for City Council, I encouraged him to run, little did I know he would serve for 35 years.
Mike was always a gentleman and conscentious Council member, We had many good discussions, he was pragmatic and enjoyable to work with….I will miss him, very much.
