I'm saddened to read that Mike is no longer with us. He was my very first "boss" out of college when I graduated USC in 1963. He taught me so much of what I carried with me through my 50 year career as a Vice President of Marketing & Sales for various home building companies as well as my 4 year stint as Division President for the J, M, Peters Company. I wish I could see Mike once more to tell him once again how much I appreciate what he drilled into me to think about the details and to stay committed to your purpose. Until maybe 15 years ago we used meet once or twice a year for breakfast at that club that David Murdock had on Wilshire Blvd. I retired about 6 years ago and will turn 80 next year but I was in my early 20s when he hired me as his assistant at Larwin and my son was born that same year. I'll never forget knowing Mike. God rest his soul. My most sincere condolences to his wife Jackie and the rest of his family.
