Mike was a good friend all through school - from 1st grade on through 1969! We were neighbors on the north side of town - a nice neighborhood in our day. I remember the first time I played spin the bottle was at his house - he had a party in Jr. High and I can't recall who I kissed. The last time I saw Mike was at our 30th class reunion and we spent some time remembering the old days. Mike was always a gentle soul and will be missed by many.

* I think it was me Becky. Sue Perry also. What an 8th grade night!!!

Through the ninties when I traveled to Midland I would visit with Mike and Debbie. I last saw him at the 30th reunion also. If you had the friendship of Pitts you had the real thing. Damned cancer...

I am so sorry to hear about Mike. He was a fun loving guy & always seemed to be smiling without a care in the world. My sympathies to his family.

We were in Mr Marshall Williamson's class, Franklin Jr, 8th grade. Met up with Mike, again, 27 years later in 1991 at his Midland oilfield packers and liner hangers office, near Loop 250 & W Illinois. I believe, he was area mgr, for Baker Industrial. Will never forget, Pitts.

I too send along my sincere sympathy to Mikes' family with his passing all to soon.  I remember him fondly as the big, humble, gentle, happy guy, and yes with that sweet sort of shy smile almost always on his face.  I know he must had a good life.  Rynda White Lemke

My best memories of Mike, not only walking home from school and talking, but watching him play football in Junior High.  He was the guy that could stop the other team in their tracks.  I was lucky to have him in many classes through out elementary to high school, and he had a nice sense of humor if he spoke up. He was a sweet man, and I hate to see another of our fellow peers leaving us.  RIP my friend.  You will be remembered.

As a relative newcomer to our class (I moved to Abilene when Dad went to Viet Nam in 1967) I remember those who seemed to make a effort to get to know me and Mike was one of those. Those of you who knew him seem to have a common thread of "kind soul" and I agree whole heartedly. What a great guy!
