it was johnny b in the morning, low ride trucks at lunch then star wars and horror movies after lunch. the fun did not begin until his haunt hobby became a business. ups delivery at Metric was go time. what would be coming in. what body parts, what insects, nocturnal creatures would he create. i worked 20 years with mike at metric. i don't think a day went by without talking about his projects or see him draw out new halloween designs. He did get to go to Disney and universal studios always talked about going. always looked forward to see him drop in and get an update on recent projects. he made metric a fun place to work. i am so sorry for your loss. you will always be in our prayers. his talent was beyond compare. george swedie

One of the best friends I've ever had in my life. He taught me so much technically, artistically and most important spiritually. His perpetual smile and his quick wit. His ability to always take the higher road. He indeed was the glue that kept us all together. The void he left can never be filled. I will try to take your optimism forward. God Speed my dear friend.
