I'm in the same class. Mike was a super nice guy. Last time I saw him was ARSC 2012. We spent a good 
hour talking tape machines and magnetic tape manufacturing. I doubt any other one person had such 
deep knowledge of both subjects. He will be missed.

I was always hoping for that high-fidelity, precision transfer job that would require budget to buy 
an ATR from Mike.
