Met Mike through Griz. Great guy left us too early, but so did Griz. I know they’re hanging out together in heaven. My condolences to the family

So sorry for your loss, Mike was a great guy and friend since 1980 when he was the only person to work on my 1980 Corvette. Mike took care of my Vette every year for 15+ years when I’d drop off my car in Nov and pick it up from Mike’s shop in Mar, the next year. I talked to Mike in June 2019 and told him of my vacation plans in Europe this summer and he asked me to bring him back a hat, which I did ... from Greece. I called to talk to Mike in July, before my flight overseas, and was told he was in the hospital. Upon returning from Europe, I called the shop several times before talking to Tony and was saddened to hear of Mike’s passing. My prayers and condolences to the Allen Family & F...riends.Read more
