    Turtle was a great person and will be missed by all who knew him. We worked together many many years at McNutt Service Group. He was a caring person and always willing to be of help on or off the job. He has helped me many times. Many of our customers wanted only him to service or repair there systems. I considered him to be one of the best friends I had at work. My thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time. Lois

    I've known Mike most of my life and I always knew if I ever needed anything, that I could call on him and he would be there for me. Mike was driving the first time that I ever went 140MPH in a car--on hwy 191! He was also a good friend to my wife, Lisa. He helped her through a hard time in her life and he will be dearly missed by both of us. Rest in peace, our friend.

    We were so saddened to hear of "Turtle"s death. We lived right beside him at Wolf Pen. He was a great, loving guy whom always met you with a smile. He loved playing ball with my grandsons whenever they were over and was always there to lend a helping hand. We will surely miss him but know he is in heaven along with my late husband, "Poochie" Corn. My heart goes out to the family. God Bless You!
