Annie BockasI worked with Mike. He is undoubtedly one of the top 5 most delightful guys I ever had the pleasure to meet and work with. An amazing thing, to make people feel better no matter what he said. He would always email me and ask for me to customize something for a customer. Even if I was flustered by work and having a hard day, Mike had a warm sense about him. You wouldn't know but, sometimes it made my day to talk to him. I am sincerely sorry that you and your family going through such a tragedy. We will all miss Mike. We are here for you.

Jim Hyde - I worked with Mike at Balchem and I know that he will be greatly missed by all of us, collectively and individually.  Mike was a dedicated, effective and outstanding employee.  He did his job very well and was liked and genuinely admired by his colleagues, customers and service providers.  He was very funny and I remember in team meetings he was always ready with a quick-witted, pithy comment that would make us all laugh and smile.  He was kind, supportive, engaged and a friend to everyone.  We truly enjoyed working and associating with Mike.  Please accept my personal and deepest sympathies and wishes of comfort and peace for your loss.  

Judy WilsonMike was such a good guy. He was always such a good friend to Josh. He and Amber were so excited to be with us in Vegas to be there when they got married. Will miss him and his great bear hugs. 
Much love to all the family
