Dear Mrs McCafferty:
I am a new employee to Ultra-met and unfortunately did not have the privilege of working with Mike. I say privilege because it is rare to find someone who has such an outstanding and unanimous reputation as Mike. I feel like I missed knowing a truly great person. I had a chance to speak with Mike 3 or 4 times as he visited over the Holidays. He was always gracious and friendly with me. Considering the circumstance he was dealing with he must have been a remarkable man.
My sincere condolences to you and your family during this difficult time.
May Peace be with you,
John Potuzko

I worked with Mike when he returned to Ultra-Met from the Army. He always had a smile for everyone and helped with any work problem. I remember his laughter and the meticulous way he kept his white Chevy II. Very sorry to hear of his passing. Dave Curby
