I had the absolute pleasure of working alongside Mike in the Faculty of Health and Human Sciences over a number of years. Mike brought fun, humour and laughter to the Faculty. He genuinely cared about everyone- he knew us all so well and always made a point of getting to know us and our families himself being a real family man. His professionalism and attention to detail was second to none - he never missed a comma, full stop or split infinitive or the chance to tidy up our reports before sending them to a wider audience. I used to laugh with Mike often saying gosh I can’t remember writing that so succinctly - he used to wink and say you didn’t that was me. I learnt so much from Mike and especially the difference between rational and rationale!!!! I remember fondly how every email started with a “ good morning” and never failed to end without his trademark “ keep smiling”. Mike rest in peace and God bless Jo xxx
