Mike, You were a friend who I could always talk to and enjoy a laugh with and I will miss our talks there at the store. It was always a pleasure to see you and talk with you. May you and your family be blessed by the Lord and watch over them in your absence. -Bob Kortbawi

Mike will truly be missed. I have known him and purchased numerous umpire uniforms and gear from his store over the last 20 years. I always enjoyed talking to him and asking how much these pants or shirts are and he would always say 1000.00 dollars. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and may he rest in peace. -Terry Reed

Our hearts and prayers are with Mike's family at this time of loss. I will miss chatting with him 3-4 times every month and joking around. He always had a such a great sense of humor and down to earth approach to life! We've known Mike since our days coaching the boys at Arapahoe Little League----25 years! He always gave so much of his time and energy. He will definitely be missed! -Craig & Terri Nash

Mike: You knew about baseball, softball, football, and basketball, and most likely about all the other high schhool sports because you were in the middle. You had the knack to communicate with the average "Joe,' with a simple voice, be kind. Enjoyed walking into your store, no hassels, bargining, your $1,000.00 for trousers, my bid, $50.00. I WON!! Boxing questions from you, you learned. And what made it simple, you followed the pugs for answers. Mike, you'll be missed because of your kindness, savvy, and friendliness. Next time I buy another pair of trousers for officiating, I'll name them MIKE! -Joe Armijo
