Today is both a sad day and a fond day to remember a good, generous and old friend from attending class together in the early days of the School of Architecture. Meeting his loving and supportive wife Karen and later their children. Eventually I got to work with Michael on similar healthcare projects and later working along side him within the same organization of PRA. I will always remember Mike's strong leadership skills and guiding principals. We will miss you. Rich & Susan Batchelder, Florida.

I will remember Mike as a friend with an unforgettable and sincere smile, a wonderful sense of calmness, and always generous with his time. As a mentor to many, Mike is an architect leader who has left an indelible impact on me. Every letter of interest; every project interview; every enduring business relationship incorporates a facet of what Mike has taught me. Thank you, Mike. And when I see you again, you can teach me how to play golf.

Mike was a thoughtful and hard-charging friend and architect. I relish how he welcomed me as his friend and helped me learn about the business of architecture. He and Karan lifted every party, and we had many.

Michael was an expert at random acts of kindness.. I loved golfing with him though I could never keep up with him. On a scale of 1-10 on being the best husband, father, grandfather and friend, Michael scored in the millions. When my granddaughter chose to go into the field of architecture, Michael allowed her to shadow his staff for a day, then treated her to lunch. I loved him dearly and will miss him terribly.
