I could not help of think of you today with the passing of your partner and best friend Merilee Ellsworth. I am sad she is gone and remembering times together with you both in Williams and Las Vegas. I am hoping you are together again. Love you!

I worked with Mike while he was with Sperry. Was a very "cool dude". Was great to shoot the Isht with a fellow rail fan (he knew a lot about a lot). I have a pic of him in a test chase car I have to dig up and post. I'm kind of at a loss for words here. Thanks for all your goodness mike, you will be missed.

Mike and I knew each other when I worked at Fire Service Training. Also I live in Epsom and knew Merilee as she was our Town Clerk. Mike and I used to have many long talks together back in those fire service days and I really enjoyed being with him. I hadn't heard from him in a long time and didn't realize he was ill. Very sorry to hear of his passing. Would love to hear from Merilee. Mike had introduced me to both Melinda and Meaghan years ago, although I am sure they don't remember. Mike, you were a very caring person who will be missed dearly. Sue Beaudoin

Mike and I were neighbors and classmates from Kindergarten through 4th grade. We also belonged to Cup Scouts together. After school, I joined the Navy and Mike was in school at SUNY and we lost touch. About a year ago, I found out he lived a couple of miles from my mother and we hooked up for meal and to catch up. I was looking forward to our next visit to Nevada to see him again. I will always remember Mike for his love of trains. He was a good friend and I regret not having more time with him in the last few years.

Our prayers are with Merilee and all his family at their loss.

Mike and I worked together on the Grand Canyon Railroad for a number of years. Whenever Mike was on duty we all breathed easy because he was competant, cheerful, witty and eminently pleasant to work with. Whether he was dealing with a Russian mail-order bride or giving Erv a chill-pill he remained unruffled and dignified. Long after we both went down other trails Mike and Merrilee kept a place at their table for me in Nevada when I worked in the Vegas schools.I will miss my generous, funny amigo. Tony Norris

I roomed with Mike when he worked at the Portsmouth Shipyard. After getting his last email, I was quite certain he would make it through his surgeries. I guess the reason he sent out the email is probably because he wasn't so confident he'd make it! He was an incredible roommate and a lot of fun to talk to! Though I haven't seen him in person in years, we kept in touch. I am sad to see him go.

My sympathies to his family!

Mike was a great guy had a lot fun working with him at St. Aubins. He was always busy and lots of fun to be around with him. Will miss him and my condolences to all.
All good things must come to an end’ just doesn’t seem to be a fair rule.

I never had the pleasure of meeting Mike, I am a friend of his daughters.
People say that are children are our legacy, what we created, and I would like to say Thank you, you have blessed those of us you haven't met with your legacy.
My families thoughts and prayers are with your family, God Bless.
