  3. I knew Mike for years at Kwajalein, Marshall Islands, Kwajalein Missile Range. He worked at the Photo Lab for years there. Mike, Julia and family were my neighbor’s, in the 80s. I was certainly shocked to hear the passing of Mike, I share the sorrow of his family in the loss of Mike, he was a good man, never to forget. Mike was the best, he also started the Hydrophonic Garden on Kwaj, a very talented hard working man – RIP Mike, I won’t forget you, a Kwaj icon of the past.
